You'll find bobo in a shallow grave at the southern end of Art's property. Not saying I know who shot him but  I might divulge that.  I've got to talk with Art first.  I'm flying to Pahrump Saturday morning and I'll let you know what Art says.  I'm sure we can come to some agreement.  :P
Heh...     heh...     heh.

He doesn't care about Hollywood, he wants to know about physics and the big questions.  What made the show great is to contemplate some very weird stuff that was a tangent from something that you needed a few brain cells to rub together to get.  I mean, he has all kinds of scientists on and it's not boring.  Only Art could do that.

With some actual opinions of his own and some very sensible rules for good radio conduct, he presided over an orderly nut house.  Like a really good party that hovers right on the edge of chaos, but no one ever has to call the cops.

He travelled, he lived and he loved.  Only interesting people can do interesting radio.  Hence, the Noory problem.
Only Art could do that.

Do you have semi (or overtly) lesbian avatars for a political purpose? Just asking for a friend... :D love you are posting again BTW...

Oops....sorry, missed that, Chefist. I thought you were talking to Catsmile. Or maybe you were. He could be a lesbian, stranger things have happened.

Anyway, yes...I have a few. For a while I was thinking of using this one, but I thought it might frighten the locals.

Too superhero-ish?

If we would have kept pushing at the end of the first gulf where would we be today? One of the alleged reasons for 9/11 was that the radical/fundamental, what ever you want to call them were pissed about infidels being in the "holy land." We kept troops over there in part to keep Saddam Hussein in check. If we would have take him out we would not have needed to maintain a presence, would have saved a lot of Kurdish lives. That quite possibly would have helped us avoid 9/11, we would not have had to go back to Iraq. We had Islamic terrorist then but not like today hell after hitting Muammar Gaddafi's house he settled down.

That's a no shitter.

You'll be waiting a lonnnnnggg time. There will only be one Art.  I'll be satisfied with anyone better than Noory.  I guess I have a lower bar. :P ;)

No doubt, Art was/is a master of his craft but we still want to hear stories, be informed, engage our minds and imaginations and I'm sure that there are people somewhere who want to do that. However, in this digital age where you'd think the tools and resources available would make that easier few seem to actually want to anymore. People seemed more productive in analog times.  :-\
