Hi everybody! Is everyone settled in? Are we watching the end of 60 Minutes and wishing Andy Rooney wasn't dead? Getting ready for some RAZZLE DAZZLE Tony action? Do we at least have some excellent snacks in arm's reach? Great! Let's go!

This musical number about strikes makes me want to reconsider my stance against Wisconsin's choice to celebrate Scott Walker.
Sunday June 10, 2012 8:18
