Show Notes for Thursday March 26, 2020


Dear John,

I think more than anything else, right now I just need some comfort in my life. We seem to have society collapsing around us and I am stuck at home. I discovered that my job is not an essential position. I am rethinking everything I know right now. I'm wondering if this would be a bad time to change careers to find something that would be needed no matter what. I felt like I was punched in the gut when I was told my job is not essential. What do I do every day? Why do I go there? I really think this epidemic will open my eyes, and others, to how we look at society. Do you think this would be a bad time to change careers? What would be a good long-term essential option? Any ideas?

Michigan State Police troopers followed a man about six miles through the snow after he fled on foot at a rest stop in Wexford County. Troopers from the Cadillac Post tried to stop a driver around 11:00 p.m. Friday on northbound U.S. 131 near M-115 for an equipment violation. 20-year-old Justin David Atkins pulled the car into the Clam Lake Rest Area and stopped on the far side of a semi-truck. Atkins got out of his car and fled on foot, with troopers giving chase. He was tracked for about six miles through the snow and spotted at the Beacon and Bridge gas station. Atkins was arrested after a foot pursuit. Police said Atkins had alcohol in his system, a suspended license and no insurance on his vehicle. He was arraigned at 84th District Court in Wexford County on charges of felony fleeing and eluding and misdemeanor operating while license suspended. (

FUN FACT FOR YOU:Share this with your friends... they'll think you're really smart!
There's an entire town under a rock. If you've ever been accused of "living under a rock," you'll feel right at home in Setenil de Las Bodegas in Spain. Many of this tiny town's 3,000 residents live and work and play in a gorge beneath a huge rocky outcropping, where homes are built right into the rock. It provides so much shelter that historians think this area has been occupied by human settlements since the Stone Age.

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A Florida ex-con swindled $3,000 from a woman he met on a dating app – and then coaxed her into sending nude snaps of herself in order to be repaid. 35-year-old Michael William McDougal posed as a man named Michael Reynolds on Plenty of Fish while getting acquainted with his victim. The pair moved the conversation to Facebook, where McDougal said he needed to borrow $1,000 after losing his bank card. The woman lent McDougal $3,000 over the course of several days. He promised to pay her back, but notifications she received from PayPal were bogus. Investigators said McDougal later messaged the woman using his real name in an attempt to “clear up” any of the victim’s “confusion” about his alter ego. He even bragged he could cover the victim’s losses out of sheer “generosity,” and then offered to pay her $5,000 if she sent nude photos to his cousin. McDougal, who was arrested Thursday on charges of extortion and scheme to defraud, has been released from custody after posting $4,500 bond. If convicted, he faces up to twenty years in prison. (

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by
According to a police report, as a manager worked nearby to sanitize a section of a Wisconsin grocery store, a 53-year-old woman licked the handle of a freezer door in what she later told cops was a “protest to the Coronavirus.” The odd act of defiance occurred Saturday afternoon in the freezer section of Festival Foods in Marshfield, a city in central Wisconsin. As detailed in a Marshfield Police Department report, a store manager told officers that he was “sanitizing the handles in the freezer section” when he looked over at a woman later identified as Nona Lindhors. Lindhorst, the store manager told police, “proceeded to look at him and lick the door handle of a freezer door.” The manager “immediately sanitized the licked door handle” and called 9-1-1. Lindhorst, who told cops that she “has not used this method of protest at any other locations,” was informed that “her behavior was uncalled for.”
