Show Notes for Thursday December 20, 2018


Dear John,
I thought you said this was anonymous! Please do keep it that way. I have tracked 100 well-paying jobs in (my town) from their ad to the final selection over two years. 100% of these professional jobs have gone to internal candidates. Hey (my town), what if ranchers bred cattle with the same few family members? Wouldn't be good for the life and quality of the herd! What can we do to get (my town) to let new talent into the fold?

According to jail records, in a fit of road rage, a drunken Utah man chased a car while brandishing a sword and snow shovel before spitting at police when they took him into custody on Saturday. Early Saturday morning, the man became embroiled in “a road rage incident.” He then followed the other car involved in the incident to the driver’s workplace and confronted the person inside the car, attempting to punch them through the window. After finally connecting and punching the other driver in the nose, He then began running back to his car while the driver of the other vehicle followed him and called police. When the man realized the other car was following him, he took a large sword out of his vehicle and began running toward the driver in the other car. The driver put their car in reverse, and the man threw the sword at the vehicle as it drove backward. He then grabbed a snow shovel outside a nearby business and began walking to the driver's car with it. Luckily, police arrived before the man could cause any damage with the shovel. (
