Show Notes for Thursday November 1, 2018


Dear John,

We're getting ready for Thanksgiving. In the past we have hosted the dinner at our house and my family has come here to join us. My parents and grandparents, my brother and sister and their families and even a cousin who lives nearby. This year my sister and I have had a strained relationship due to politics and facebook. She is skipping my dinner and is trying to get other family members to join her. So far my cousin is taking her side, but everyone else is still planning on joing us. I've tried to make it easy for her to join us, but she keeps fighting with me about it. We're going to plan for them to be here whether they join us or not, but how can I make sure this ridiculious spat between sisters doesn't tear our family apart. I'm trying to be the adult, but she just won't listen. Any advice?

According to a news release from U.S. Attorney Scott Brady, a Baldwin woman pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to producing fentanyl at a Pittsburgh motel earlier this year. 32-year-old Angel Grannison admitted to a charge of maintaining a drug-involved premises. Allegheny County police detectives and a Drug Enforcement Administration special agent were called to a Motel 6 on May 11th to investigate a “strong chemical odor” coming from a room. Authorities found Grannison inside, allegedly with a fentanyl synthesis laboratory set up in the bathroom. Federal officials said the lab consisted of commercial chemistry equipment and chemicals obtained from China. Investigators seized packages with return addresses in Chinese, a journal with notes on fentanyl production, and a “Chemistry for Dummies” book, according to the release. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 12th. Grannison faces up to 20 years in prison. (

A report from Tennessee's health department says a doctor borrowed money from a patient then diagnosed her with dementia when asked to repay it. Suellen Lee was quoted by The Tennessean as saying that she voluntarily retired her medical license because her case was unwinnable. She maintains the accusations are "all lies." Government attorneys say the 79-year-old Lee borrowed $300,000 from "E.W." when her medical clinic fell on hard times. Records show Lee later diagnosed E.W. with dementia without using any testing method or getting a second opinion. E.W.'s financial company denied her access to her assets upon being notified about the diagnosis. A psychologist who assessed E.W. found "no indication of dementia." But Lee stood by the dementia diagnosis. Lee says she had been repaying the debt in installments.

A passenger on a Frontier Airlines flight leaving Cancun for St. Louis opened a cabin door, deploying the emergency slide, a spokesperson for the airline confirmed. After the passenger said he was feeling ill, he became agitated, prompting the flight to return to the gate. On the way to the gate, however, the passenger became "physically violent" with a flight attendant and attempted to exit the aircraft. "Crew members, assisted by some passengers, restrained the individual until authorities arrived," the statement read. "Officials transported the passenger for a medical evaluation." The aircraft was removed from service for a maintenance check due to the deployed slide, and Frontier re-booked passengers to other flights and provided hotel accommodations. "We understand that unexpected delays are frustrating and work to get our passengers to their destinations as soon as circumstances permit," the statement continued.
