    Finkelstein does a great job as usual. The only problem he has is that he speaks too slow. He needs to be able to speak his point quicker so that he doesnt get cut off before he makes his point. For example I wish he was able to finish his quoting of one of Benny’s “other hats”. Otherwise Finkelstein clearly won this one.
