Welcome to the show.
Yes. What would have been unthinkable two years ago has become reality. We are leaving this town we love and heading for a new life in Texas soon. Below we enumerate several reasons why. (BTW, we had made the decision to leave even before Texas Gov, Abbott decided to remove the mask mandate, but anyone who really knows us realizes that this doesn’t exactly discourage us from making this move.)
Our guest this week is a double-dipped victim of cancel culture. He was barred by ebay from selling a now-banned Dr. Seuss book by its title based on its offensive material (hint: it involves a street called Mulberry), while MEIN KAMPF, RULES FOR RADICALS, and other books that advocate racism, violence and overthrow are fully allowed. So he is now offering it under the title BANNED DR. SEUSS BOOK, which is apparently OK. America 2021…
Happy 365th day of the 14-day lockdown

Hilarious fact-check that doesn’t check out

One last reason
Tonight’s special guest: Donny Eisenbach
While you can still buy Mein Kampf and Rules for Radicals, you cannot buy certain Dr. Seuss books. No…really. A fellow traveler in the New Abnormal, we are joined by an Ebayer who has had enough, Donny Eisenbach!

Wine of the Week
Apothic has been one of our favorite brands for a while. Up until recently, their wines have primarily been blends, so we surprised by this new entry, a straight Merlot. Jim is not crazy about Merlot in general, but based on the general quality of their wine, we decided to give it a try anyway.
For a Merlot, especially in this price range, this is a remarkably good wine. Very plummy and smooth, with a great finish. Feel open to pairing this with a beef or pork dish of your choosing.
