IMPORTANT NOTE: I want to sincerely apologize to the audience for audio problems that occurred in the last 30 minutes of the show. Although it is impossible to avoid all technical issues, I promise that we shall figure out what the problem is and do whatever we can to make sure it doesn’t happen again.Thanks for your patience!
Thanks to our guest, Professor John Lott, and congratulations to him on his terrific new book, At the Brink: Will Obama Push Us Over the Edge?
Unfortunately, the technical problems seriously messed with the flow of the show, and we didn’t get to a lot of the content that we had in the stack. I know what you’re thinking. That happens every week. Yes, it does, but to a much lesser extent. We didn’t get to talk at all about the silly controversy surrounding Barack Obama’s complimenting California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ appearance, the passing of Roger Ebert or several other issues. Once again, my apologies.
