Even local radio guys have to take a short break. Today Alexis and I snuck out late afternoon for a movie, "Southpaw" with Jake Gylenhall and Forest Whitaker. Pretty good. I almost cried and Alexis certainly did.
She didn't cry this morning on the air, though. Alexis comes on with me Fridays and we talk about crap going on around the Calumet Region. We also talk a little about stuff going on in our own lives and that makes us like a real Region couple and I suppose that brings us closer to some.. and then there are others who wanna puke up their recently-devoured breakfasts.
Hammond mayor Tom McDermott also came on with me this morning, and he said the most interesting thing - that he didn't want to agree to guarantee to raise $270,000 to bring Hillary Clinton to Hammond. McDermott said that last time around in 2008 it was all about getting to know Tom McDermott for the votes. This time, it's all about the money.
