Show Notes for Thursday, February 11, 2021


Dear John,

2020 was not a good year for me. I am a third generation business owner and I lost the business. I feel like I let me family down. I'm the oldest of three sons and my father put me in charge of the company before he passed away a few years ago. We were doing well until the shutdowns and we tried to get the assistance we needed, but it didn't allow us to continue. When we finally closed our business and sold the building, we had just enough to pay off our debts. I just turned 50 and I'm starting over. I'd love to see if you or one of your listeners have some advice on what this old dog can do to learn some new tricks? I'm willing to try something different. I have a friend that told me he love being a real estate agent. I have another friend who sells insurance. I'm taking a moment to decide what my next chapter looks like. The rest of my family has already moved on to something else. I had to finish this chapter first, but it's time. Any advice? Thank you for your help.

Thanks to the incredible popularity of Cobra Kai, interest in The Karate Kid franchise is higher than it’s been for almost 30 years. Long before he agreed to a return in Cobra Kai, though, Daniel LaRusso was already the defining role of Ralph Macchio’s career, one that he gave up trying to escape from many years ago and decided to embrace instead. The first major film appearance of Macchio’s career came the year before in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Outsiders, where he shared the screen with a bevy of future stars including Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Rob Lowe and Emilio Estevez. And in a recent interview, the 59 year-old revealed that a trio of his contemporaries were also in the running for The Karate Kid, all three of whom would go on to experience huge success in their own right. “I was found early, I was cast very early, but it was like one of those test deals where you’re not in yet.

MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by

A man who allegedly impersonated a police officer in Las Vegas was arrested after pulling over a real cop in an unmarked vehicle. An arrest report shows that an on-duty Vegas officer in a plain patrol car busted 29-year-old Pedro Franco one day after he allegedly pulled over a driver on US 95 near Sunset Road. The driver told cops a suspect in a Hyundai Tucson – which was outfitted with red and blue sirens on its grill – pulled him over but then drove off. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the alert motorist then followed the compact SUV and took down its license plate before relaying the incident to police later that day. Franco then tried the same scheme the following morning, on January 23rd – but this time picked the officer as his potential victim. Like the day before, the Hyundai kept driving after the stop, but the officer followed the SUV to a nearby street where he took Franco into custody. Franco was busted on one count of impersonating a public official and attempted impersonation of a police officer.
