self-promotion alert (JR made me do it)

    If you've ever wanted to hear the dulcet tone of my voice, or you want to avoid it, I'm booked for 11 a.m. today on the Fan 590 in Toronto to discuss a piece I wrote about legalizing sports gambling, and why it would be good for the NBA and other leagues. I say "JR made me do it" because he suggested I announce my appearance after I sought his wisdom as to the host during that time slot, and whether said host would have me screaming about making the bad man stop.

    If I use the word "defense," I'll make sure to pronounce it like it has a "c" in it.

    I told Bob that the host Mike Hogan would treat him with typical Canadian politeness and deference.

    Or is that "deferense"? :)

    Nice try, Bob.

    If you talk about the Mafia, will you refer to them as organised crime?

    Can you even cash a "cheque" in the United States?

    The last time I got traveler's checks, they all were spelled traveler's "cheques," so I guess you can.

    The interview seemed to go well, even though I failed to pronounce been as "bean." Now I need to wet my whistle with a glass of milk poured out of a bag.
