Hi. There are a lot of people to thank and they know, they all know who they are, but we would like to single out three people for free airtime: Fred Underhill, our associate producer; Larry Silk, king of editors; and especially Max Palevsky, our executive producer.
Who was really – well, Max was really more an executive friend. He really had faith in us and came through whenever we really needed it.
So thank you, Max. And also thanks to all the friends of the production who told us to keep this speech good and short.
