Is everyone’s favorite voice-over artist in over his head? It certainly seems like a probability.
Are we really so stupid in America? Are we so hard up for a rags to riches story that we’ll substitute naivety for knowledge and wisdom?

I love that Ted Williams has a phenomenal vocal talent, and I’m thrilled that some folks were willing to help get him off the streets; however, was there any foresight involved in the process?
