1.      The Cavs and Pacers series went down to a game 7 at The Q.  What are your thoughts on the game and the Cavs?


2.      North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in raised their arms together in a conciliatory gesture as the North Korea leader said he would be willing to denuclearize in a return for a commitment that the U.S. would not invade as the two leaders concluded their historic summit.  Do you think China played a role by putting pressure on North Korea to abandon their nukes?  Do you think we will see an open border there soon?


3.   “The Simpson’s” became the longest running primetime scripted TV show in history.   The show aired it’s 636th episode of the animated comedy Sunday night on Fox over-taking the show “Gunsmoke”.  What do you attribute the success of “The Simpson’s” to?  Are you a fan of the show?


4.      Former Cleveland City Councilman Joe Cimperman pled guilty to 26 misdemeanor charges that he awarded city money to a design firm that employed his wife.  Cimperman, 47-years-old, served in council for 18 years but resigned two years ago after the Ohio Ethics Commission started their investigation.   Have you ever interviewed Cimperman?  What do you think would be a just punishment?


5.   The full name of the royal baby is Louis Arthur Charles and he will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge. The name comes from a long linage of royal names. Louis is a part of William's full name, William Arthur Philip Louis, and Prince George’s full name of George Alexander Louis.  Charles and Arthur hold a special meaning as well. The baby's grandfather is named Charles and Arthur is a family tradition dating back to Queen Victoria's favorite child.  Do you think Kate and William will call him Lou or Louie?


6.      Eating chocolate can boost your health and your mood as long as it's the real stuff.  A recent university study says eating chocolate with at least 70% cacao can help lower stress and boost mood, memory, and immunity. Also, the flavonoids in cacao can help with brain and heart health due to their anti-inflammatory properties.  Scientists say the higher the cacoa content, the better. Will a chocolate bar a day keep the doctor away?


7.      Mike Pompeo, a former Republican congressman from Kansas, is the nation's new secretary of state. The Senate confirmed Pompeo with support from Republicans and a few Democrats on a vote of 57-42.  President Trump had tapped the CIA chief to replace fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. How do you feel about Pompeo's confirmation?  Will he be an asset when it comes to our relationship with Kim Jong Un and North Korea?


8.      The “Fearless Girl” statue in New York City is getting a new home outside the New York Stock Exchange facing the building.  The art work was installed last year by a Boston based firm to encourage more companies to put women on their boards.  It is symbolic that she will be facing down the New York Stock Exchange?  Have you seen or heard about the “Fearless Girl”?


9.      The latest ABC News/Washington Post Poll shows a sharp rise in the number of Americans who say that creating new laws to try to prevent gun violence should take priority over protecting gun rights. 62-percent of Americans now support banning assault weapons, up a dozen points just since mid-February. More, 72 percent, support raising the legal age to buy long guns to 21. And 85 percent back so-called red flag laws allowing the police to confiscate weapons from people deemed by a judge to be a danger to themselves or others. Do you think the numbers are on accurate reflection of how people feel?


10.   Forrest Fenn, the 87-year-old art dealer who claims to have hidden chest filled with gold nuggets and precious gems, says it may be 1,000 years from now before treasure hunters find the fortune.   Fenn said in 2010 that he hid the chest somewhere in the Rocky Mountains which is a 3,000 mile range. He said that as many as 350,000 people have searched for the bounty with no luck.  Do you think he really hid millions in the mountains?
