The top stories of the day as recounted by Kirk Minihane.
The guys opened the show by discussing Belichick's latest press conference.

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Boston Herald cartoonist Jerry Holbert apologized Wednesday for a cartoon some people are viewing as racist. In the cartoon, which pokes fun at the White House security lapse, an intruder in the bathtub says to a surprised Barack Obama while he brushes his teeth, “Have you tried the new watermelon flavored toothpaste?”

Holbert insisted he meant no offense by the reference to watermelon.

Callahan said the cartoon wasn’t funny, but it wasn’t offensive.

“I agree it’s stupid, but it can’t be racist or he wouldn’t have done it,” Callahan said. “It’s dumb, it’s stupid. But he clearly is ignorant of this stereotype.

“If I’m just landed here from outer space, I would say, ‘Why is it racist? Why?’ ”

Suggested Callahan: “I would have had him ordering a cheeseburger and having Michelle yell at him because of all the fat and calories.”

– Ricki Noel Lander, girlfriend of Patriots owner Robert Kraft, landed a bit part in the season premiere of the CBS show “Blue Bloods,” according to the Boston Herald.

Kraft is known to have a close relationship with CBS president Les Moonves.

“How did she get a spot on a CBS show? I don’t know how that happened,” Minihane deadpanned.

Said Callahan, “She just must be supremely gifted.”

– A white Ohio woman is suing an Illinois sperm bank, claiming she was inseminated with sperm from a black donor by mistake. Jennifer Cramblett, 36, is raising her mixed-race child with her lesbian partner and says the 2-year-old faces multiple challenges in the all-white community of Uniontown, Ohio.

“This is 2014, give me a break,” said an unsympathetic Minihane.

Minihane recounted his own experience with looking at sperm-donor candidates, although he and his wife did not go through with that option.

“We had a certain age, we had a certain education, the color, obviously, I would have preferred a honky but I would have taken anyone,” Minihane said. “I didn’t really care.”

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

– California became the first state to ban single-use plastic bags from grocery and convenience stores, as Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill to make it a law Tuesday.

Said Merloni: “When I go buy shoes do I have to bring my own box? Are they just going to throw me the shoes, I put them in the box and carry them out?”

“It’s only grocery stores,” Fauria said. “It should be for any store — department stores. You go to a Foot Locker, Sports Authority, anything like that, they’re going to put your box of shoes or whatever it is you buy in a plastic bag.”

“So you’re going to bring bags everywhere,” Merloni said. “You go shopping you’ll carry like six bags.”

Said Fauria: “Bring a backpack. I’ve got a backpack, I’ve got lots of zippers.”

“I will never bring my own bag to go shopping,” Benz said. “What about when my dog goes to the bathroom? What do I use?”

– Solomon Elimimian, a linebacker for the Canadian Football League‘s British Columbia Lions, made a TSN reporter wait for a halftime interview while he talked trash with a Calgary Stampeders opponent. He then calmly addressed the reporter.

Fauria was impressed with how Elimimian was able to transition from aggressively trash talking to being ready to be interviewed so quickly, although he was disappointed that the player didn’t have a Canadian accent.

– The Federal Communications Commission is considering whether to ban use of the word “Redskins” from the airwaves.

“I’m guessing that if the FCC bans the word ‘Redskins’ then wouldn’t that be radio, too?” Merloni said. “Can they really do this? They’re just appeasing people, right? … Will I get fined? Do they bleep that out?”

Here are the highlights from Wednesday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

– Actor George Clooney got married to 36-year-old human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin this past weekend in Venice, Italy. The three-day wedding weekend, which included bachelor and bachelorette parties and a 10-minute wedding ceremony, cost an estimated $13 million.

Said an incredulous Dennis: “There are people starving in Mumbai. … They’€™re drinking out of sewage troughs.”

“That’€™s the most expensive place I’ve ever been, Venice,” Callahan said. “I’ve never been to Tokyo, but that’€™s more expensive than New York City or Toronto.”

With such an expensive wedding, the hosts wondered what gifts were given to the new couple.

“What do you give them?” Minihane asked.

“Candlesticks,” replied a sarcastic Callahan.

“They had a flotilla of boats,” said Dennis.

– Federal Health officials confirmed the first person inside the United States with the Ebola virus. The man traveled to Liberia in late September and returned to the United States without any symptoms. But the man started getting sick a few days later and was admitted to a Dallas hospital on Sept. 28.

“We should ground all flights, no flights to Liberia,” Callahan said.

Callahan wondered why officials have told people to stay calm and wash their hands.

“Does that mean that if you wash your hands, you don’€™t get Ebola?” asked Callahan. “Is that true? What about Purell? Does that keep it away?”

Said Dennis: “This is like that thing where the computers were all going to go nuts at the end of 1999. Y2K. And nothing happened. Same thing here.”

– A Milwaukee journalist said she felt “creeped out” when the White House staff said she could not ask people questions about an event. Meg Kissinger could not believe the staff told her she couldn’t have access to with the crowd at the Wisconsin gubernatorial campaign event where Michelle Obama spoke.

“It’€™s pretty scary,” Minihane said.

“That is frightening,” replied Callahan.

“Who’€™s going to stop her, the Secret Service?” asked Dennis.

“Typical Obama, though,” said Callahan. “They don’€™t feel like President and First Lady. They are King and Queen of America.”
