Also: Gun violence in this country is out of control, The Boston Marathon, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Pinterest and some Garrison Keillor. Plus: Listener Letters™ and News From the Dunes™.

Several things could have happened on the show this week like an Interview with a very interesting author about her very interesting book and a discussion about the demise ofThe Civility Project but instead we propose the following: John Boehner bawls like a small child who has lost his favorite toy, The Golden Globes and its all-consuming controversy over the host, Anne’s NEW GLASSES, the Constitution Quiz, The 2nd Amendment and why gun advocates aren’t reported to don’t stop many crimes. Also: How Sarah Palin was horribly treated by the “media”, the Hollywood Starwhacker Conspiracy, a woman in Northern Michigan recreates The Last Supper entirely out of dryer lint and Anne recommends some new party trends.
Songs include: Under Pressure and Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa
Herrick, Sterling, Verhovek and Howe on journalism ethics, Houston politics and Glee. Suicidal shrimp and others on Prozac going toward the light. Sarah Palin refudiates “stuff” on Twitter and compares herself to Shakespeare. Brit braves blaster – blows back bullet.
Wesley Snipes, Urkel and Chinese tour guides all get themselves in trouble. Also, flexing her journalistic muscles, Anne decides to make up why Serena Williams needs surgery for an injury to her foot. And a surprise: Michael once again proves his natural talent for being a bad sidekick.
All of this and much more on this week’s Big Show™!
