“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. I’m your Mr. Roving Reporter (RR), back from a few days off, where I attempted to get the yard ready for Old Man Winter. As you can see — oh, sorry, I forgot, we’re no longer on television since the mayor of the city torched our television studio.”

“Did she light the match?”

“What the… Who the heck are you?”

“Name is Sam; pleased to meet you, I’m sure. Couldn’t help but overhear, but you just said that the mayor burned down your TV studio, so what I want to know is did she light the match?”

“What difference does it make?”

“Good point. See you around.”

“Wait, even though we’re not on TV anymore, we’re now on the radio.”

“ Does The P&E still carry the transcripts like they used to?”

“Oh, sure, nothing’s changed except for the television part. Tell us what you do, Sam.”

“Am I on the radio, live?”

“Yes, you are, and no editing or time delay, either. Go ahead.”

 “I’m the HR – Human Resource – manager for a large construction company, actually the largest in the city.”

“How’s business?”

“We’re just finishing the high school stadium on the South Side and I’ve got to lay off half the workers, so this election couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.”

“How do you figure that?”

“Simple: I pink-slip those who voted for Biden; I mean, if there’s a choice between employees with a brain vs. those without one, what would you do?”

“Point taken; let’s take a commercial break.”

Maybe Baby” (2:30)

“We’re back with Mr. Swift who has something for sale; isn’t that correct?”

“Yes, it sure is. Look, a real honest-to-goodness deed to the Brooklyn Bridge that I designed myself on my laptop and then had printed up by that stationery store down the block. Looks pretty darn convincing, don’t you think?”

“Well, yes, but you don’t really own that bridge, so it isn’t real. I mean, that would be fraud, wouldn’t you say?”

“Who cares, as if Biden-Harris isn’t? Get real; if half America is so messed up, why not make a little money off of it?”

“Good point. Well, that’ll do it for us so I’ll be wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”

It’s All In The Game” (2:40)
