    Ms Lysiak you are a world class reporter, every reporter should watch and learn from you. Great, great interview, your questions were well thought out and your follow ups were thoughtful and authentic. You gave Mr. Kalcich a fair interview and he was very brave with his thoughtful answers. This is one of the best news stories I have seen all year. Keep up the quality reporting OSN we need it.

    You write, “Chris Kalcich shares his thoughts …” and she says she is female, but wants to use men’s bathrooms because that is where she is most comfortable. What about thee comfort of all the men and boys who have to “share” with her? And vice versa for male transvestites who want to “share” with women? And next story, please don’t call females “he”. It is deceptive and very bad reporting, even if activists do the wrong thing.
