Show Notes for Thursday September 6, 2018


Dear John,
My husband and I have been having some tough times lately. We've been married for twelve years. Most of those have been happy years. We have two daughters and they are both involved in many activities. Sometimes we each take a girl and go our own way. It seems like we hardly ever see eachother any more, then when we do it's pretty easy to spend that time arguing about dumb things. One of those things is a dog. We talked about getting a dog, but we both agreed tht we were not home enough and it would be a bad idea. Last weekend while I was at a work event, he took the girls out an picked out a dog. I feel like he is purpousley trying to drive a wedge between us. What do you think? I know the girls love the dog, but I think it was a bad idea. My husband agreed, but then got them the dog anyway. What do I do? Should I get rid of the dog an be the “bad guy”? Should I get rid of the husband? (just kidding, sort of)

Any advice?

One Dominican man won't be resting easy after admitting in court Wednesday he planned to smuggle roughly more than six pounds of cocaine through Newark airport customs inside a neck pillow. 21-year-old Rafael Francisco Bautista Perdomo was one of two people arrested at the airport in October after Customs and Border Protection officers found more than 6-1/2 pounds sewn inside each of their respective pillows. Perdomo and his co-defendant Brenda Mancebo were stopped at baggage screening checkpoints after arriving on a flight from Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic. He pleaded guilty to a drug conspiracy charge that carries a potential sentence of up to forty years in prison and a mandatory minimum of five.  (
