EPISODE 27: THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION

2012-02-03_whgl_02_03_12Dub describes his recent run-in with the law. Then Dub and Matt revisit the subject of talking to cops, admitting when you’re wrong, and police officers being firm but fair…followed by some stuff about insurance premiums. Shout out to their younger brother: Happy Birthday, Jobs! Quote of the Day! Dub talks about the many manifestations of Detective Munch (played by Richard Belzer) on television over the years. He moves on to discuss the assassination attempt on president Andrew Jackson, and the absolute blunder it became. Soon the discussion turns to the irrational court of public opinion and how fucking annoying it is. Due process of the law, etc, etc, etc…All of the aforementioned bleeds into a condensed reiteration of common sense VS. superstition when they move on to the topic of religion, science, the universe and nothing. And racism. In local news, Jack Horner married his 19-year-old student. Matt reads a local snipit out of Bozeman and discusses the local response to the marriage – both good and bad. Matt then tells an anecdote about the first (and only) time he met Jack Horner.Word of the Day!
