Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, Gerry Callahan and guest host Jon Meterparel. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.
– President Barrack Obama has stopped into Bunch of Grapes Bookstore during trips to Martha’s Vineyard while on a family vacation.
“He’s playing golf every day, playing golf with Ray Allen,” Callahan said. “He’s got a family, kids, friends, got to get ice cream. When does he have time to read?”
Asked Meterparel: “Does he play golf in the rain?”
“It seems like he plays golf during anything,” Callahan said. “Wars, international crises. … It’s not a good look.”
Obama likely won’t be there on Wednesday, however, as Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton is expected to be there to sign copies of her latest book.
“She and the president have been in a little bit of a battle right now,” Minihane said. “She’s been critical of him lately.”
– A man accused of killing his roommate in Gainesville, Fla., told the Siri application on his iPhone that he needed “to hide my roommate” on the day the men were last seen together.
The evidence was used Tuesday in the trial of Pedro Bravo, who is charged with drugging and strangling roommate Christian Aguilar after an argument.
“What a dope,” Minihane said. “Do any of you guys use Siri? I don’t even know how to use it.”
Said Callahan: “I don’t either. I’m always afraid.”
“I voice texted the other day, and that was like a first for me,” Meterparel said.
– The cousin of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was sentenced to two years of probation after pleading guilty to refusing to testify before a grand jury even though she had been granted immunity.
Tanya Singleton was spared jail time only because of her advanced cancer.
Singleton, 38, is subject to GPS monitoring for her entire probationary period. She will spend the first year of this period confined to her Bristol, Conn., home, except for medical and legal appointments.
“This Tanya Singleton story is unbelievable,” Minihane said. “She’s got a 4-year-old and a 7-year-old, she has cancer, she’s sick and she does not want to rat out Aaron Hernandez.”
Added Callahan: “Which seems absurd until you remember that everybody around Aaron Hernandez ends up dead.”
