Tony opens the show by talking about the moon, late fees, and also about a phone call he made. Washington Post columnist Barry Svrluga calls in to talk about Duke basketball, the Nats, and to give his thoughts on Tiger Woods. Gary Braun and Torie Clarke join the show for news with Nigel, and Tony closes out the show by opening up the Mailbag.

Songs : Ian Warrington "October Waltz" ; The Dropkick Murphys "Middle Finger"

I skipped to the end, to see if there would be any poetry e-mails, and it's Mr. Tony's Obituary Hour, again, reading ENDLESS LONG e-mails about people who liked the pod.

By all that is holy and sacred, when I die, I'm dead, and there will be no e-mail from my wife to the show.

Why bother having anyone play college basketball? Just send everyone to the NBA out of High School

I’m a foreign Little so American Express isn’t well-known around here. Can someone explain Michael’s “member since ‘86” comment. Is he saying he had an American Express card in 1986?

If MK had an AMEX card in 86, then it's the first one for a grade-schooler. I had one starting around 82 or so but bailed on it ages ago as so many places didn't accept it and I got tired of the yearly membership fee.

This is the part that is confusing to me. Michael had an American Express card as a child? Children are allowed to have credit cards in the United States?
I hadn't noticed it was Michael. That does seem weird.

Perhaps tk allowed him to be on his card. If I recall correctly, I got my first (BankAmericard) credit card in 1978 when I was 18. I had worked for pay since 1972 (probably illegally some of those times) and applied when I worked 40 hours a week at a grocery store while going to high school.

I am amazed when I think about how I got by on four hours of sleep a night in those days ...

The show suffers a fatal wound in the first 2 minutes. The MK parenting stories are just ponderous.
In small doses, OK. Not to open the show; not for a LONG story that really centers about the cute stuff his kids said.

And, again, NO discussion of the poetry disaster; no e-mails on it; nothing. MK can do no wrong.
