SARCASTIC.

>> IT WAS LOVELY ACTUALLY.

IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE SO MUCH OF

AMERICA SHOOTING.

I FINALLY FEEL LIKE I UNDERSTAND

WHY IT'S SO IMPORTANT TO INVEST

IN THE INFRASTRUCTURE.

IT WAS LIKE GOING BACK TO

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL AND REMEMBERS

WHO CAME DOWN AND LAID DOWN THE

TRACKS.

WE'RE USING THE TRACKS.

AGO.

HAS ANYONE POLISHED THEM.

TO INVEST IN THE INFRASTRUCTURE,

I UNDERSTAND.

ACTIVE RETURN.

YOU TODAY ABOUT INFRASTRUCTURE.

MANHATTAN.
