Show Notes for Thursday, April 1, 2021


Dear John,

I don't have a letter that's anywhere as exciting as the toothbrush thing, but I do think it would be a good question for you and Heidi. We have a neighbor who we have not really met. We talked to him last year when he moved in. Then all winter we kind of stay inside so we didn't really visit much. Now we're spending more time in our yard and I wave at the guy, but he seems to just ignore me. I asked the other neighbors if they've met him. They all think he's a great guy. I don't know if I did something to offend the guy, or if he thought we were intentionally ignoring him the last few months. I wanted to go over to visit with him. My wife told me to leave the poor guy alone. What do you think? Should I go over and invite him to join us for a drink or something? Should I leave him alone?

Signed – Wondering Neighbor

New York State Police arrested a man three times on the same day. They took place in the Orange County city of Newburgh. The first arrest occurred at 7:55 a.m. Troopers say that Robert Radek was driving a 1994 Jeep Cherokee traveling South Street in Newburgh when he was stopped for a vehicle and traffic law violation. The trooper discovered that Radek was driving with a suspended New York driver’s license and was in possession of crack-cocaine. He was charged with a misdemeanor drug charge. The second arrest occurred at 2:30 p.m. Troopers say Radek was driving a 2007 Honda Civic and traveling on Third Street in Newburgh when the same trooper pulled him again. The trooper immediately recognized Radek from the earlier stop. This time the trooper said Radek had 1.3 grams of heroin and crack cocaine in the car. He was charged with a misdemeanor drug charge. The final arrest occurred at 5:45 p.m. Radek was back in the Jeep Cherokee when he was stopped for multiple vehicle and traffic law violations. The trooper determined that Radek was impaired by drugs. He was given two felony charges and released on an appearance ticket to appear in a Newburgh court in April. (

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

For most people, $5,700 can go a long way — a dream vacation or perhaps a bathroom renovation. But for one Colorado woman, that was the price tag for a single cup of coffee. Lisa Angello ordered a $5.70 cup of coffee on Christmas Eve from a coffee shop inside the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Aurora, Colorado. The next week, her bank alerted her to insufficient funds. At first, she thought it was fraud, but then she noticed a charge for $5,705.70 — the dollar amount for her drink entered twice. What should have been a simple refund has turned into a two-month fight to get her money back. The coffee shop admitted to the mistake and claims it has refunded her, but Angello's bank, USAA, has yet to see a dime. At first USAA gave Angello a credit while it figured out the issue, but the $5,700 was taken back out of her account last week. Angello says she just wants her account balance to be restored so she can put the whole ordeal behind her. “And it doesn't even matter whose fault it is anymore,” Angello said. “I just want it rectified. I want it made right.” (
