    Good! I have always been a fan of Patricia from way back in the day when she was doing sports. Hopefully she is not as partisan as Richardson was after being assigned the top spot. I am sure she can bring back some professionalism to the spot which was absent since Max left and Bell Media booted Carol Anne!
