BP comedy routing

There was a comedy routine poking fun at an "answer man", PR, spokesperson-type BP representative, this morning in the 3rd hour. It was just hella funny, but I can't find it on the internet. There's a few video spoof of BP out there, but not this one. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? What is its name or link? I have to hear it again--it was that good!

Danger of ID check

There is probably no requirement to carry some form of ID in all places here in the USA, just to walk the streets. But a two-time felon friend-of-mine found out that it is a felony to be without ANY form of ID here in the USA. Maybe he was told that in relation to the state he was in.

Let's bring some Quiz Kids back to the media!

As a someone who listens to Old Time Radio from time to time, one of the more "informative" programs that filled the air waves from forties to the early fifties was Quiz Kids, a group of very bright, intelligent young people from the Chicago are who were given questions that were sent in by listeners across the States. They dealt with a range of subjects and usually the kids, all under fifteen years old, most of them answered them deftly. Some of them were historical, some of them were scientific, and there were a few questions about sports, as well.

Afghanistan

I called Jay Inslee's office, the person said she did not know how he was going to vote. I told her I wanted him to vote no on the bill because we can't win the war!

Thanks
