  • Thank you for the video. However, I find that I strongly prefer to read an article rather than have to sit and listen to a video that is over an hour. I can probably scan the article in 15 minutes. So -- is there any chance that you could reprint the discussion as an article, as well as present it as a video? Thank you.
