Show Notes for Thursday April 23, 2020


Dear John,

I hear you visit with a financial guru quite often. I'd love to hear his outlook on the stock market right now. I'm watching my retirement account dwindle. I have a few years to make it up, but it's pretty concerning to me and I'm sure it is to others as well.

The mayor of Alton, Illinois told his police department to crack down on anyone violating the Illinois “stay-at-home” order. The police did just that — and cited the mayor’s wife at a downtown tavern. Alton Mayor Brant Walker revealed in a Monday Facebook post that one of several people cited at a downtown bar early Sunday was his wife, Shannon Walker. Walker said the Alton police chief contacted him about 1 a.m. Sunday to say they were investigating and stopping a gathering at a bar downtown that was in violation of Illinois’ stay-at-home order. “I was also made aware that my wife was in attendance at this prohibited social gathering,” Walker wrote. “I instructed the Police Chief to treat her as he would any citizen violating the “Stay At Home” order and to ensure that she received no special treatment.” A reporter’s request for comment from Shannon Walker was answered with a statement that the mayor had no further comment on the matter.

A California TV reporter got into a hairy situation while filing a report from her bathroom – when her naked hubby was caught in the shower. Melinda Meza of Sacramento’s KCRA3 recorded herself cutting her bangs for a story about hairstylists during the Coronavirus quarantine when her camera captured more than she bargained for. Her husband, Mike de Lambert, apparently is seen in a reflection in the background, unaware that his privates were beamed over the airwaves. “Oh my god, please let that not be her husband,” one Twitter user posted. Another joked: “Why she wanna work when she’s got all that at home?”

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

Incensed that his fellow Floridians were not wearing masks and gloves to the pharmacy and supermarket, a 62-year-old man yesterday warned on Facebook that if he were to test positive for the Coronavirus, “I will head right to Publix and empty every Clip I own!” Police say that Robert Kovner’s 4:23 p.m. post declared that, “I FIND it criminal that you enter the supermarket or pharmacy without a mask, as if you are either too stupid to understand the danger your spreading or so selfish that you don’t give a f--k that your endangering others?” The post was eventually deleted, but not before it came to the attention of police, who questioned Kovner at his home in Sebring, a central Florida city. Citing the “significance of the threatening post made on Facebook,” Kovner was arrested for threatening to conduct a mass shooting, a felony. He was booked into the county jail in lieu of $30,000 bond. (
