Last night's episode only proves that somebody is threatened.  However, to plant an uneducated, street person in our casino episode was menacing and tacky.  That is why our station was forced to delete the episode and start over tonight.  Tonight we are discussing how one should break ties with the New Year 2016 and handpick their friends more carefully.    Don't be fooled by the title.  The Sasquatch society may invade the show as they have before.  Listener beware:  All guest callers will be screened.

In Anishinaabemowin, the language of the Ojibwe/Anishinaabe people, there is no word for “goodbye.” The Ojibwe/Anishinaabe view life and all relationships therein (inanimate and animate worlds) as being interrelated forming a circle—once something or someone enters our life circle they continue to exert an influence throughout the remainder of our lives even if we do not encounter or see that thing or person again in any direct way. Accordingly, as an expression of this life view, the Ojibwe/Anishinaabe do not say goodbye when we part ways with one another, but rather, we say Giga-wabamin Menawah—“see you again.”
