Gotta run - trying to keep a 6 yr old from sinking my battleships - the MB overlords changed the board, wtf??! Some things are NOT to be messed with.

evening holly! confuse your opponent by smuggling in stratego pieces.

Someone should adopt you at this point, Van!!
  Tue. 2/28/12 5:58pm listener james from westwood:

bob and van, good evening to you both!
  Tue. 2/28/12 5:59pm ndbob:

hello james!
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:00pm ndbob:

we have a blizzard warning for tonight - so i'm not going anywhere
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:04pm listener james from westwood:

blizzard! hunker down with the fun 91. or possibly catch the returns from mi and az on npr. watch romney's head explode on cnn if santorum edges him out in mi!
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:07pm Holly in NC:

Hi listener james, Van , and everyone else! This is the child who has already whupped my butt at Stratego, but luckily Danne D. has given me tips for the next Stratego match. Thanks, Danne!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 2/28/12 6:08pm Doug Schulkind:

I was a beast of a Stratego player back in the day. I just love saying "back in the day."
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:08pm ndbob:

yep.. i have something to listen to tonight but between blog feeds and twitter i will be following an endless stream of returns
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:10pm listener james from westwood:

i know 2008 was still hectic at this point and involved both parties, but this primary just feels endless, and we're not even at super tuesday!
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:10pm Holly in NC:

Doug, sorry, I really do have to run & will miss show :-( PLEDGE everybody! If you can. Don't mean to be rude. I'm only able to pledge 'cuz it's in my budget from last year & I haven't yet had to run space heaters this season (knock, knock, knock on wood) Oh, the joy of poverty!
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:11pm ndbob:

@james - i would like to see romney win michigan - hoping that the "unelectable" person wins can really backfire
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:12pm ndbob:

nice version of this song
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:13pm listener james from westwood:

true that. the race is far from a guaranteed dem win. lots can happen and many big lies can be spun between then and now, no matter which repub candidate survives the convention.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:15pm texas scott:

hey Drummer.
Thanks for diggin deep and sharing the treasure you find !

  Tue. 2/28/12 6:27pm glenn:

looking at things from outside the u.s. it seems pretty simple. one or another batshit crazy republican will lose to obama.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:27pm Artie:

Yip!!!! Barking mad and loving it.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:28pm glenn:

that's a delmore brothers song, actually.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:29pm glenn:

forget it, nazario. that c.d. is mine, mine, mine.

Did I say Louvins? Thanks for the correction, Glenn. I LOVE being corrected by listeners. No really.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:30pm glenn:

the louvins did a tribute c.d. to the delmores. that's on it.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:32pm listener james from westwood:

  Tue. 2/28/12 6:35pm charlie:

hi bob!
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:36pm glenn:

oooops. i guess i should say a tribute album. that said, the bear family louvin bros. box set is the best 250$ i ever spent, on a record, anyway.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:36pm ndbob:

when you say ingenuity, do you mean wrapping yourself in melted vinyl records?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 2/28/12 6:49pm Doug Schulkind:

Why, yes, Glenn, that's EXACTLY what I mean.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:49pm glenn:

oh good. i'm sure ken will be glad to hear that.
  Tue. 2/28/12 6:58pm listener james from westwood:

i have this hideous vision of ken entombed in an airproof chrysalis of vinyl. then i think, there are bdsm fetishists out there googling for just such a sight. we need their pledges! melt, ken, melt!
  Tue. 2/28/12 7:02pm ndbob:
