Show Notes for Thursday November 22, 2018


Dear John,

I'm spending Thanksgiving with my family this year. So excited to see everyone, but I hate the fact that I'm the only single sibling. Every year they spend too much time talking about my dating life. I am happy being single. I have a brother that is on marriage number three and two sisters that are each on marriage number two. Only one of my brothers that has been married to just one wife and they are at each-other's throats every time we get together. I'd like to tell them I'm single because I'm the youngest and they have set such a lousy example for me. Would that be wrong of me? Advice to everyone else who's going to be with someone in the family who happens to be single. Please leave them alone about it. They know they're single. You don't need to remind them. I guess I should ask a real question. Should I tell my family to butt out? Or should I just laugh like I usually do?

It's often said that thieves will take whatever they can get their hands on, but one burglary case in Huntington, West Virginia has truly left the victim and neighbors dumbfounded. On Saturday, Barry Hyder went to his daughter's wedding. One of the happiest moments of his life was followed by one of the most bizarre when he returned home. Hyder said his back door was “wide open” and “the place was ransacked.” Hyder says there'd been a leak in his bathroom, so he'd been planning to remodel it and install a brand-new commode, which was sitting in a box in his living room. The thief stole a TV, computer, and THE NEW TOILET. “How desperate are you that you steal a toilet of all things?” Hyder said. Neighbors are confused why a thief would stoop to this new low. “I don't understand why somebody would steal a toilet,” neighbor Ashley Holland said. “It's very sad for somebody to break into somebody's house to steal a toilet.” Hyder moved to Huntington last November and says this is the third time there's been a break-in at his home in less than a year. He says this toilet theft is the last straw, and he is making plans to move to Tennessee to be with relatives. 

A Vincent, Ohio man was arrested on a firearms charge after he posted a Facebook video of himself shooting a fully automatic handgun, despite a court order barring him from owning or using guns. On Friday, the Washington County Sheriff's Office was notified that 28-year-old Christopher A. Walker had posted a video on his Facebook profile on Nov. 13th, showing himself wearing gloves and shooting a Glock 9mm pistol that was modified with a button to make it fully automatic. Walker was recently placed under a temporary protection order issued by authorities in Wood County, West Virginia, which states that Walker is not allowed to possess any firearms. On Friday, Washington County Sheriff's deputies went to serve this protection order to Walker at his home in Vincent, Ohio, where deputies recovered multiple firearms, including the Glock 9mm gun seen in Walker's Facebook video. He was arrested and charged with Possession of a Dangerous Ordinance, a 5th-degree felony. (
