TUESDAY 7-10-18

1.   President Trump announced his pick to replace outdoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy last night.  What do you think of his choice?


2.       The parents of the boys rescued from a jungle cave in Thailand are not allowed to hug or touch their sons until after results of blood tests come back. The boys are being treated in a hospital but are being kept in quarantine for fear they could contract or spread infection.  Hospital officials are working on a plan to allow parents to see the boys "at a distance through glass." Do you think they Thai authorities have done a good job in handling this situation so far? 


3.      Phil Mickelson confirms talks are underway for a $10-million winner take all match against Tiger Woods.  There are no details yet on a date or location.  Would this be must see TV? Who did you think would win?


4.      The Biebs is engaged.  Not Indians pitcher Shane Bieber but Justin Bieber who popped the question to Hailey Baldwin, daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, while on vacation in the Bahamas.  The ring on Baldwin’s finger appears to be 6 carats and would retail for around $400,000.   What would make a good wedding present for the young couple?


5.       Boston is considering allowing non-citizens to vote in local elections and the City Council’s Committee on Government Operations has  scheduled a hearing to discuss the idea. If approved, it would allow immigrant residents with legal status in the United States to participate in municipal elections.  Do you think this would be Constitutional?


6.      Getty will ban photo shopped pictures that make models look thinner.  The policy update comes on the heels of a new law in France which will force magazine publishers to disclose whether commercial images have been retouched to change a model's body shape. The laws in France will also require fashion houses to employ runway models sized 34 or higher (dress sizes 4 and 6 in the U.S. and Britain, respectively).  Do you care if someone is made to look thinner or have bigger breasts in a picture?  Should the United States have laws that require publishers to disclose whether photos have been retouched?


7.      A Texas mother was arrested after police say she sold her seven-year old son to two men and was in the process of selling his younger sisters. Esmeralda Garza of Corpus Christi was arrested and has remained in jail on a charge of sale or purchase of a child.  Police found the child while executing a drug search warrant and discovered that the two girls, ages 2 and 3, were in the process of being sold.  If convicted, what would be a just sentence?


8.      A UCLA professor died during a bondage session in a Los Angeles area home. Doran George, 48, was found dead inside the home of Skip Chasey, an executive for Hollywood’s William Morris Endeavor agency and known in the Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Masochism community also known as BDSM.  The professor had been wrapped “head to toe in plastic wrap and gaffer’s tape, with small breathing holes at the nose and mouth,” during a mummification ritual. When paramedics arrived, they were unable to revive him.  No charges have been filed.  Should the person or people who bound him up be charged in George’s death?


9.      The Center for Disease Control says that about a quarter of all adults in the U.S. get the recommended amount of exercise. According to new stats, 22.9% of people get at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity each week plus some muscle-strengthening activities.  Do you do any cardio?


10.    A group of retired law enforcement and military officers along with a TV producer Thomas Colbert have been investigating the infamous skyjacker D.B. Cooper who parachuted from a Northwest Orient flight in 1971 with $200,000 in cash.  They have concluded that Cooper was really a paratrooper and Vietnam Vet named Robert Rackstraw.  The investigators believe they broke a code in a letter to The Oregonian newspaper in 1972.  Do you think D.B. Cooper was a fictitious character?  Does it make sense that a former Vietnam paratrooper could have been Cooper?
