    Glad to hear that.

    Tell him that we are all waiting for him. :)
    It's budget time in NYC.

    It's often used by the tabloid media. "You heard the news here first." We are the source that printed/stated the news first, before anyone else.

    Shane's got the inside.

    So it means like "We said it here first, and you must remember this fact", right?

    (P.S "the inside"? :? )

    Well, you really don't have to remember where you heard it per se. It's more like they want to let you know that they are in the know (i.e., they know what's going on in the world), and because of that we should tune in to their station or buy their paper/magazine instead of some other company's.

    Shane's got the inside story: He's close to the original sources (i.e., Mike and Ronbee); He may even know them; in Shane's case though, he was just making a joke re: Mike and Ronbee running away together. There are two situations when people run away together: 1) run away to marry secretly, and 2) run away from committment: one's family, job, friends, ect.

    All the best, :D
