FAILED ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT VIDEO ... I'm not the kinda guy who sits in front of the computer for hours and posts "crazy, wacky" videos telling people how great they are. So when somebody shows me a good one, I'll usually pass it on, share it, post it online, whatever. Last week somebody I work with showed me an intriguing vid of a failed assassination attempt on the life of a politician in Bulgaria. It's hard to take your eyes off of it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBd6ptb7-QA
STOOD UP? CALL 911 ... This is a weird tale of some poor dude who obvuiously does not get a lot of play. A Montreal man drove to Barrie, Ontario for a date with a "woman" he met online, but when he arrived, she wasn't there. He called 911 to complain; desperate times call for desperate measures: www.TorontoSun.com/2013/01/25/man-calls-911-after-being-stood-up
PAUL BROWN SHOW ... Yukon Jack, Paul Brown & RyMai are off, and Gillian Foote is flying solo this week. Tomorrow, she'll have Marilyn Manson tickets to give away with "Yes Or B.S." and $50 to Schanks for Super Bowl! Listen every weekday from 5:30am to 10am, Mountain time.
