UPDATE ---- JAMA PROVIDED FREE ACCESS TO BOMBACK'S ESSAY FOR A LIMITED TIME!! --- THANK YOU JAMA!
Think you don't have time to write? Andrew Bomback is a physician and writer (with toddlers and a wife) but he's still managed to write a novel, a textbook, many academic papers, and first-person essays.
On Sunday, February 15, we'll discuss his two nonfiction essays, "I Know That Elmo is Not a Child Molester" and "Errands" published on Full Grown People and in JAMA, respectively. "Errands" reached an audience of 300,000 readers and received an amazing response.
In both essays, I get a strong sense of Andrew's voice and we'll talk about how he conveys that voice in different genres. If you'd like to get a copy of "Errands," here is the citation info: Bomback A. Errands. JAMA. 2006; 295(7):731-733. doi:10.1001/jama.295.7.731.
Download the essays, read them, and be ready to call in with your questions about writing, life, and the writing life!

Post election anxiety has risen to new levels as individuals in states petition for secession. Is this where American Christianity is headed in a culturally diverse country? Does Elmo's puppeteer's sexuality affect how some Christians will behave toward the loveable muppet character? Join Pastor Neal for another great show as he attempts to answer these and other questions.
Monday Night On Jump Right In with Splash ......
One of my favorite business books is titled Ready, Fire, Aim, by Michael Masterson. The book discusses the 4 stages of a successful business's life cycle. The first stage, of course, is the most harrowing as most businesses fail in the first 6 months. One of the biggest internal obstacles to launching a business is the belief that you need ALL your ducks in a row, before you even test your product's or services's viability.
You do need to line up some ducks ..... the necessary ducks ..... but requiring every single duck to be in place before you make a move can prove to be paralyzing.
This is the problem I see with the new Elmo majority in Congress. The Elmos passed the XL Pipeline Bill, but then came the DHS bill and the Elmo's insistence that it contain riders to limit the president's executive orders on immigration. Suddenly, this one extra duck has got the whole line of ducks confused, bottle-necked, paralized.
As it relates to 2016, The Keystone Bill and the DHS bill are a perfect contrast between the right road to the White House and the wrong one for the Elmos.
Also on tonight's show, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is a wine connoisseur..... I love her even more now.
Now that our combat efforts in Afghanistan are over we will be stepping up our efforts in ..... Afghanistan? Thangs that make ya go hmmmmmm.
And we have to talk about Yemen. In his Purchase of the Union address, the president, as you know, held Yemen up as an example of how his counter-terrorism strategy is working ..... then Yemen fell apart. That's a problem.
All this and more on this episode of Jump Right In!
John Glines, Tony Award Winning Producer of Torch Song Trilogy
History will show that Harvey Fierstein became a star when he did in great part because of theatre producer John Glines, but just how do Captain Kangaroo and Big Bird figure into this success story? Find out! John Glines won the Tony Award in 1983 as producer of Torch Song Trilogy. When accepting his Tony, he was the first person ever to acknowledge a same-sex lover during a major televised awards show.

Tune in to the interview with Yung Elmo right here on Talk2Me ROD Radio Show.
Yung Elmo is a young talented and gifted rapper who is climbing his way up the charts to stardom.
Hear what he has to say about being young in the music business and what it takes to be successful.
Our Special Guest: Elmo Shropshire — a.k.a DR. ELMO — is best-known for his recording of “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer,” the Christmas classic which has sold more than 11 million copies since it was first broadcast by a San Francisco radio station in 1979. Now, in December of 2012 “Grandma” is once again #1 on Billboard’s Chart.
Consistently the most requested holiday song of the past three decades, “Grandma” has secured its place in American pop culture and made Dr. Elmo the king of comedy carols.
To learn more about Dr. Elmo here is a link to his website. Thank you for listening!!
You just landed a drone on the White House Lawn .... what are you gunna do next? Didn't they just clean house at the Secret Service? We cannot be less impressed with the new Men In Black. Calling Agent K, Dick Tracy, Dudley Do-Right, Somebody! Anybody! Who amongst you can protect our president?
Tonight I will also finish up what I didn't get to on that Warrior for the people, Elizabeth Warren.
We are also going to jump into Senate Political Theatre. The media is now focusing on fissures in the new Elmo Senate. Is it cause for concern or much ado about nothing.
Queen Pelosi is making her own 2016 wish list. This ought to be good.
And Obama is drawn into defending the United State's alliance with the Saudi Arabi. Didn't the Smurfs constantly question George W Bush's insistence that Saudi Arabia was our friend?
Thangs that make ya go hmmmmmm.
All this and more, tonight!
I am encouraged by what I am seeing in Washington. Debates on the senate floor. Minority Party Amendments. Some glitches already in the GOP (Elmo) controlled House, but what cha gunna do ..... Nothing is perfect.
Can the Republicans keep this up for two years? Will they grow veto weary? Will the right wing be a constant thorn in Boehner's and McConnell's side. The Democrats certainly hope so.
And on the other side of our Blue and Red coin, the Democrats (Smurfs) exercise the filibuster like the Elmos had to? Or will they give just enough support to pass legislation while still helping the president sustain his certain onslaught of vetoes? Will Blue Dogs be a constant thorn in their Liberal sides? The Republicans certainly hope so.
All good question the answers for which we will have to wait ..... but that doesn't stop us from talking about it .... and talk about it we shall!
My pond is open ...... Swim at your own risk!
Lots to talk about tonight, on the eve of the host's birthday!

In today's show I am sharing parts of Ed Keller and Jon Berry's book called "The Influencials." ne American in ten tells the other nine how to vote, where to eat, and what to buy. They are
Who are they? The most influential Americans -- the ones who tell their neighbors what to buy, which politicians to support, and where to vacation -- are not necessarily the people you'd expect. They're not America's most affluent 10 percent or best-educated 10 percent. They're not the "early adopters," always the first to try everything from Franco-Polynesian fusion cooking to digital cameras. They are, however, the 10 percent of Americans most engaged in their local communities...and they wield a huge amount of influence within those communities. They're the campaigners for open-space initiatives. They're church vestrymen and friends of the local public library. They're the Influentials...and whether or not they are familiar to you, they're very well known to the researchers at RoperASW. For decades, these researchers have been on a quest for marketing's holy grail: that elusive but supremely powerful channel known as word of mouth. What they've learned is that even more important than the "word" --what is said -- is the "mouth" -- who says it. They've identified, studied, and analyzed influence in America since the Standard Oil Company of New Jersey (now Exxon) hired Elmo Roper himself to develop a model for identifying opinion leaders, and in The Influentials, they are finally ready to share their results.

186pointDUCE (WWR) "Tickle me Elmo Monday"
1st HR “Tickle me Events”
2nd HR "Elmo Party Time”
Kevin Clash, the voice and puppeteer of Elmo on “Sesame Street” for more than two decades, took a leave of absence from the show on Sunday after an unsubstantiated report that he had a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy. 186pointDUCE news threw one of the most trusted preschool properties into turmoil as the show’s nonprofit producer, Sesame Workshop, moved quickly to protect the 43-year-old brand, estimated by Forbes to be worth more than $500 million. Elmo is one of the PBS program’s most famous Muppets, with his own 11-minute segment called “Elmo the Musical” in each daily show. He also has been featured in popular toys, including Tickle Me Elmo.
