Was just wondering; when you become a liberal intellectual, do they issue you dark rimmed glasses and a mac? I mean, is that required?

Dunk: Are you pining for liberal meadows? You too could get RPGs, if you so desired. Methinks glasses rarely indicate political inclination, no? Or maybe I didn’t get the memo. Again. Sheesh.

Dunk funk … Did you ever consider that Ira might just be a Buddy Holly fan?

Mac?… there is no rain coat in the photo.

It would be great if he brings his uncle Philip to play a bit too. That would be a double liberal treat.

I LERF Ira and TAL.But the talk sounds kind of boring.I wish we were getting one of his TAL live shows, but at least we’ll be able to catch the simulcast at a local movie theater on 4/23.

I’d pee my self if this program came to my town. You people are just so “up your self”.

Well, maybe I’d pee on you.

I love TAL. With ticket fees it’s going to cost around $50 bucks though. That’s a fair bit of cash. I’d like to see more at BT, but find it a bit dear.
