Vito and Vito discuss the latest from the VA
Scandal and how it is a preview for universal healthcare on a national scale.
Also, in New York City, Mayor Bloomberg's tobacco law took effect this past week. You now have to be 21 to buy any tobacco products in the city. Is this right? Does it effectively help the youth? Remember, you have to be 21 to buy it, yet older than 14 to use it.
The Brooklyn Republican Party this year officially did not grant one Wilson-Pakula to any Democrat, the first time in a very long time. Vito and Vito discuss the original court case and if it is beneficial in the long run of politics.

Background: Substances of abuse are a cultural phenomenon as ancient as civilization itself. Only recently, however, have scientists begun to study their effects on us, and more specifically, their effects on our brains. Why do people get addicted to drugs, tobacco, and alcohol? Why is it so hard to kick a habit? It stands to reason that since drug use is self-destructive, people would naturally avoid it. This obviously is not the case. What is not so obvious, however, is why people turn to addictive drugs. People use drugs, tobacco, and alcohol to feel good, without regard to the fact that long-term effects are very bad. Research is only now showing us how genetic and environmental factors all play a part in our susceptibility to substance addiction.
KEY WORDS: Alcoholism, dopamine, emotional memory, neurotransmitter, physical dependence, addiction

I met Kevaughn at the WBLS Bridal Expo after I tasted his cake sample in a cup. It stopped me dead in my tracks. I had to continue to eat it and find out exactly who baked this cake. Plus, I went back to try his other flavored cake. Oh my goodness his cake was so delicious. I asked for his information and whether or not he'd like to be a participant in my next Wedding Cake Taste-Off.
He is a genuine artist when it comes to cakes. Join me as I ask him how he got his start and what keeps him gong.
