We get a surprise phone call from the “streets of the Bronx.”
Andrew and I give a preview of next week’s midterm elections, and discuss Hillary Clinton’s boneheaded statement last week that businesses don’t create jobs.
We talk about why civil society matters and why race hustling is failing. Then we talk about cronyism in the lame duck session.
Finally, we circle back to the tour of the Bronx – I remember growing up in the North Bronx near the Tracey Towers, and Andrew discusses his Dad’s family in Crotona Park and Riverdale. We talk about the importance of family, community, and that it’s never too late to give thanks and show gratitude.
Music on this week’s show: The Sweet, Run DMC, Pilot, Joe Jackson, Stevie Wonder, War.
