Show Notes for Thursday, September 23, 2021


Dear John,

I've been listening for a while now. I have typed this letter a few times and deleted it before sending. I'm almost 30 years old and I have never been married or even really dated anyone. I've put everything else first in my life and now I wonder if that was a mistake. Last year I lost my job. It was due to COVID, do the company closed and we all lost our jobs. I've already been hired at a new company and it really was a blessing, but it also made me wonder why I put everything else before my own happiness. I'm gonna be 30 soon and every one of my friends and relatives were married and have kids. I had a great job that didn't mean much when the company closed. Now I'm trying to figure out how to even meet people who are my age, or close, and single. I've had friends try to set me up before and that seemed really weird. I'm not sure what I'm asking for, which is why I deleted this message so many times before. Any advice for a single dude in 2021?

Signed – Super Single

The Sioux Falls Police Department arrested a man after they found him afterhours at a bar with a beer in hand. A 53-year-old man was arrested at about 5:30 a.m. Friday, according to police spokesman Sam Clemens. The man was charged with first degree burglary and booked into the Minnehaha County Jail. A burglary alarm notified police of a possible occupant at the bar. Once police arrived, they found a man who was walking around the establishment drinking a beer, Clemens said. Police were unsure how the 53-year-old made his way into the bar. Forced entry was not a factor in the man getting into the bar, Clemens said.(

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

A Florida mom was arrested for allegedly helping her son and his friend beat up another child. 30-year-old Ashley Ruffin is accused of grabbing the boy by his hair and arm and holding him back while her son and another bully hit him. The victim told police that he was sitting with his friends outside the sports complex at Indian Trails Middle School in Palm Coast when he was attacked by the two boys. His friends ran over to help, and, at some point during the scuffle, the victim said that Ruffin restrained him, allowing her son and the other boy to continue pummeling him. Witnesses, who corroborated the boy’s story, also told cops that Ruffin flashed a taser at one point during the brawl. The victim’s mother reported the incident to a resource officer at the middle school on Wednesday, who in turn flagged it to the sheriff’s office. Ruffin was hit with battery and child abuse charges. She has denied that she tried to hurt a child, and claimed in a Facebook Live video that she was only trying to pull her son away from the altercation. Authorities say the juveniles involved in the altercation may also face battery charges. Flager County Sheriff Rick Staly said that he doubts Ruffin “will receive a mother of the year award.” (
