Well, it took a whole week but I am finally feeling like I'm not jet-lagged anymore. I hope your transition to Standard Time was accident and heart-attack free. Gonna mostly have a lighter show today, except for what I hope will be an important, even if intense, conversation with Brian Johnson (not the lead singer of AC/DC.) Starting the show off with Kevin Nealon will be quite a treat!
Kevin Nealon has had a heck of a career. Movies, TV shows, even art, and of course 9 seasons on Saturday Night Live. He's playing this weekend at Comedy Works South at the Landmark. You can get tickets here: Kevin Nealon | Live in Denver | Comedy Works. Remember that you have to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test (within 72 hours of the show) and you have to wear a mask to walk to/from your table...but it's worth it! By the way, Kevin is a REALLY good caricature artist! The Caricatures of Kevin Nealon (firewireblog.com)
Brian Johnson (not from AC/DC) is an US Army vet and founder of WarriorNOW. His current mission, the most important mission of his life, is to do all he can to prevent veteran suicide. We'll about how how he's helping and, I hope, how we can help him in that mission.

Pastor George Roberts RIP
Just this morning I was looking to book a guest for the show on the very important topic of increasing gang violence in Denver. What I found instead was very sad news. (I saw the first article and then looking to get in touch with Pastor Roberts, found the second article.)

I really don't know what to say about this except that it seems like a cute, maybe even lovely, and relaxing thing for a Friday. The video's title is a doozy!
