The rules were created due to public pressure. What do you think is going to happen when they try to enforce the roll back? Nothing good is going to come out of this for the administration. ;)

I couldn't tell you how it looks on HBO Now, but I just finished watching Sully on HBO GO. Excellent PQ. Almost as good as the BD version. The Jet engine sounds were pretty good too.
