— Foxwoods has cancelled a future Bill Cosby show in wake of the sexual assault allegations against him, but there are shows still scheduled to go on in Boston and Worcester in February.
“If I already had my tickets, and I don’t care if I paid $200 for them, I wouldn’t go see this pig,” Dennis said.
“Doesn’t he have a right to perform, though?” Callahan asked.
“Yeah, he does, and I have a right not to go watch him,” Dennis replied.
“Exactly. Shouldn’t the market place determine who goes to see him,” Callahan responded.
— On a Fox News live broadcast from Ferguson, MO, shots were fired while Steve Harrigan was reporting on Monday night, following the ruling of there being no indictment for Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Harrigan kept yelling at his crew to move back.
“So the commissioner, or the chief said no shots were fired by his guys, not one. Who is shooting, and what are they shooting at?” Callahan asked.
“They are just shooting into the air. It’s a Palestinian thing. Haven’t you seen that in Palestine,” Dennis replied.
There were a number of buildings set on fire in the town following the ruling, some still burning into the morning.
“I guarantee you there would not have been 25 fires lighted during the daylight hours,” said Dennis. “They are much more effective at night, right? That’s like bon-fires at pep rallies.”
“You’d never light a fire at 9 a.m.,” Callahan replied.
— Jennifer Gable, 32, a transgender women of Twin Halls, Idaho, died unexpectedly last week. Friends of Gable were horrified to see her dressed as a man with short hair and a suit at the open-casket funeral. Jennifer was born a boy named Geoffrey
The online obituary made no mention of Jennifer, and the photo that was used appears to be of Geoffrey when he was a teenager.
“Do you blame the parents?” Callahan asked. “It must be a tough time anyway.”
“It’s not their choice,” Dennis replied.
“Yes, I do,” countered Minihane. “It’s someone who chose to live her life that way.”
