We're starting to get antsy about not having callers or people in our live chat during the show, so we've made the show a bit more relaxed and less frenetic. Today's topics explored 1)Cussing laws on the books of Pennsylvania and whether people should be arrested and serve time in jail just for cursing, 2) A story that is unprecedented but received very little attention from the national news media: A Columbia journalist denied permission to attend Harvard's prestigious Nieman program by the Obama administration due to the journalist's supposed "terrorist activities," 3) Artscape coming to Baltimore this weekend and running from July 16 - 18; 4) Roman Polanski extradition denied by the Swiss government, capping a long and tortured saga that began with Polanski pleading guilty to engaging in unlawful sex with a minor back in 1977, then fleeing the country, and 5) Lindsay Lohan is going to prison. Boo-hoo. No one guessed the quote from a famous play which came from none other than "The Glass Menagerie." That means our wonderful prizes --- a free flag T-shirt and a free Dr. Seuss book --- go back in the vault and wait for this show to gain some traction. Join us next week on Monday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. EST for a recap of news that seriously doesn't matter. Be there or be trivial.
