Thanks. He's a co-exec this year, full exec next year. I'd like to say that those promotions are based purely on merit, but it has a lot to do with the deal your lawyer negotiates, and my son was smart enough to get himself a good one early on!
FWIW, Dave comes down on the liberal side (as do many of the writers in the room) but has no problem with the show's content. In his eyes it's about finding the right 'voice' for the characters. That voice (and BTW many anecdotes and names that have popped up on the show) have come from his mother, who is from a little town south of Nashville, where we spent a lot of time when Dave was growing up listening to his grandfather spin tales.

One of them about his uncle Harold, as a boy, trying to get a squirrel that had latched on to his finger off by SHOOTING AT IT, will be seen in an upcoming episode.
