DYSOM 10/4/2019: Mary Ann Sorrentino


DAN: MY ADVICE IS JUST, BUCKLE IN. ♪ THE DAN YORKE “STATE OF MIND” PROGRAM IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN PART BY LOOKOUT RHODE ISLAND AND TACO COMFORT SOLUTIONS. DAN: I LOVE THE FRIDAY PROGRAMS BECAUSE WE JUST KIND OF LET IT GO. DEPENDING ON WHO IS HERE WITH ME, SOMETIMES WE REALLY LET IT GO, AND WHENEVER WE HAVE MARY ANN SORRENTINO HERE , IT IS THIS TELEVISION ROLLER COASTER RIDE THAT I THINK YOU ENJOY VERY MUCH. WELCOME IN, NICE TO HAVE YOU. REMINDER, ON FRIDAYS YOU SEE A SHOW THAT IS ORIGINATED FOR THIS EVENING BUT TAPED ON THURSDAYS. WE TAPED TWO SHOWS ON THURSDAY. IT IS A FOUR-DAY WORKWEEK FOR FIVE SHOWS, AND I ALWAYS TELL YOU WHEN THE NEWS CYCLE IS MOVING AT A RAPID PACE THAT YOU MAY THINK, DID YOU WATCH THE NEWS TODAY? AND WASHINGTON IS MOVING AT SUCH A FAST PACE. IT SEEMS LIKE A CLICHE NOW. YOU THINK I HAVE NOTHING LEFT IN MY REPERTOIRE, BUT IT DOES MOVE AT SUCH A FAST PACE, AND THE PRESIDENT TO LITERALLY IS TWEETING AND LONG PRESS CONFERENCING, AND WHATEVER ELSE HE IS DOING AT SUCH A RAPID PACE , AND CONGRESS IS TRYING TO KEEP UP. WE WILL REGROUAT NEXT WEEK, NO DOUBT. IN THE MEANTIME, MARY ANN SORRENTINO IS WRITING A NEW COLUMN IN “THE BOSTON GLOBE” AND IS WRITING ON A MONTHLY BASIS. SHE HAS AN IMPORTANT PIECE. HER FIRST TAKE A I THINK. WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT, COMING UP. IN THE MEANTIME, I REMIND YOU OF THE PRESIDENT SAID YESTERDAY AROUND MIDDAY. PRES. TRUMP: THEY SHOULD INVESTIGATE THE BIDENS BECAUSE HOW DOES A COMPANY, AND BY THE WAY, LIKEWISE, CHINA JUST STARTED INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE BIDENS, BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENED TO CHINA IS JUST ABOUT AS BAD AS WHAT HAPPENED WITH UKRAINE. DAN: THE PIECE IS ALREADY UP, CORRECT? MARY ANN: YES. THIS IS MY SECOND PIECE. DAN: SORRY. MARY ANN: THAT’S OK. THE FIRST ONE I WROTE WAS IN SEPTEMBER, AND I WILL BE DAMNED NOW I REMEMBER WHAT IT WAS ABOUT. DAN: WE WILL TALK ABOUT YOUR SECOND ONE LATER IN THE BROADCAST. IT IS A TOUCHING TESTIMONY TO A GREAT SURGEON THAT YOU THINK DID IT THE RIGHT WAY. I AM SURE IT GOT A LOT OF FEEDBACK. IN THE MEANTIME, I CANNOT START WITHOUT ASKING YOU WHAT YOU THINK. MARY ANN: WHAT DO I THINK OF THAT? DAN: THE WHOLE THING. MARY ANN: IT IS A GOOD THING THAT THEY JUST SWORE IN MIKE PENCE AS THE PRESIDENT. OH, IT DID NOT MOVE THAT FAST. BUT IT COULD HAVE BETWEEN THAT AND NOW. [LAUGHTER] DAN: — MARY ANN: YOU DON’T KNOW. I NANCY PELOSI DOWN THE LINE. I DON’T KNOW. I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT, AND I THINK I AM GOING TO WRITE ABOUT THIS, SO NO OTHER WRITERS TAKE THIS IDEA BECAUSE IT WILL BE DOCUMENTED THAT IT IS MY IDEA TODAY, WHATEVER DAY IT IS. DAN: CAN YOU STOP FIGHTING AND BEING COMPETITIVE? YOU PICK FIGHTS BEFORE THEY START. MARY ANN: I NEVER DO STOP. AS A FEMINIST, I LEARNED THAT ONCE YOU STOP, YOU ARE DEAD. YOU GO BACK TO WORK IN NEXT-DAY AND THERE IS A GUY IN YOUR CHAIR. I NEVER STOPPED. THE BATTLE — THE WAR IS NOT OVER. SOME BATTLES HAVE BEEN ONE, BUT THE WAR IS NOT OVER. I HAVE A GRANDDAUGHTER TO WORRY ABOUT. DAN: IT COULD HAVE BEEN A FEMALE WRITER THAT WAS GOING TO RIP YOU OFF. I AM PLAYING WITH YOU. SO WHAT IS IT YOU ARE THINKING. YOUR NEXT PIECE. MARY ANN: THE PRESIDENT THING — LIKE ALL OF YOU OUT THERE, WE HAVE FRIENDS THAT WE REALLY LOVE, THESE ARE PEOPLE WE HAVE BEEN CLOSE TO FOR YEARS, WE HAVE A LOT IN COMMON, AND IT IS NOT JUST LIKE ONE PERSON OR ONE COUPLE, THERE IS ENOUGH OF THEM OUT THERE, BUT IT IS NOW BECOMING AN ISSUE IN MY MIND — HOW LONG DO WE THINK WE CAN PRETEND THAT WE CAN REALLY GO OUT TO DINNER OR GO TO THE MOVIES, OR GO TO EACH OTHER’S HOUSES AND NOT JUST IN A CERTAIN POINT START THROWING DISHES AND SAYING, I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN. IF YOU KEEP LOVING HIM, THAT IS ON YOUR HEAD BUT I DO NOT WANT TO BE HERE. THAT IS WHERE I AM. I DO NOT SEE HOW WE CAN PRETEND THAT IT IS OK. I DON’T REALLY LIKE HANGING AROUND WITH FASCISTS. THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE FOR ME. ALL KIDDING ASIDE, I WAS TALKING TO ONE OF MY CLOSEST FRIENDS OF MY LIFE FROM COLLEGE, AND SHE IS QUITE RELIGIOUS. JEWISH. WE WERE TALKING AND I SAID, WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY? REMEMBER WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND WE SAID, HOW DID THE PEOPLE IN GERMANY LET THIS HAPPEN. AND THEN YOU WOKE UP AND YOU ARE LETTING IT HAPPEN. AND IT IS NOT FUNNY. IT IS TERRIFYING. DAN: FIRST OF ALL, IN TERMS OF STEALING YOUR THOUGHTS, IT WILL BE A COMPELLING PIECE WHEN YOU WRITE THAT. IT IS NOT SOMETHING — AND I AM SURE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THIS BECAUSE YOU’VE BEEN IN THE BUSINESS — IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I DO NOT DEAL WITH ON A DAILY BASIS, AND THE BATTLES THAT HAVE BEEN ENGAGED BUT IN TERMS OF LIFE. IT IS FINE THAT YOU MENTION THIS BECAUSE AS YOU — WE TAPE THE SHOW, I WILL BE HEADING TO MY 40TH HIGH SCHOOL REUNION. I HAVE 12 GUYS THAT ARE STILL ON THE P EMAILING, WE HAVE NEVER LEFT EACH OTHER. HALF OF THEM ARE ARCH TRUMP SUPPORTERS. AND WE ALL KIND OF KNOW — WE ALL KIND OF KNOW WITHOUT HAVING SAID IT THAT THIS WEEKEND CANNOT BE SPOILED BY THIS, BUT WE ALSO KIND OF KNOW THAT AT 2:00 IN THE MORNING IN A HOTEL ROOM ON THE 95TH BEER, WE WILL GET INTO IT. I WILL BE THE FIRST ONE TO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT, I DO THIS FOR A LIVING. I HAVE TO GO. OR I CHANGE THE SUBJECT. IT IS A TENSION CONVENTION. THOSE FOLKS THAT ARE ARDENT TRUMP SUPPORTERS, YOU HAVE NOT SEEN A LITTLE OF ACQUIESCENCE TO THE NOTION THAT WHILE PROGRAMS AND POLICIES, AND REASONS WHY, AND DISRUPTION, AND ALL OF THAT KIND OF STUFF OR WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR THAT HIS COMPORTMENT IS BOTHERING THEM, THAT WILL BE YOUR WINDOW TO STILL SPEAK FRIE FOLKS. I AM SURE THEY HAVE TO BE THERE AT THIS JUNCTURE. MARY ANN: I ACTUALLY HAD SOMEONE YOUR BALANCE SHEET LATELY. DAN: OF COURSE. WELL? HAVE YOU LOOK AT YOUR BALANCE SHEET LATELY? MARY ANN: IT IS MORE THAN MY BALANCE SHEET. IF I AM IN A CONCENTRATION CAMP NEXT MONTH, IT IS NOT GOING TO MATTER — I SAID THAT WORD ON A SHOW, BUT THE PRESIDENT DOES DAN: BUT HE IS NOT — MARY ANN: HE SAID IT ON THE AIR, SO THAT TURNED EVERYBODY SAYING, WHILE HE SAID IT, AND I AM NOT SAYING IT. DAN: DID HE ACTUALLY USE THE WORD? MARY ANN: YES, HE SAID THE FOUR LETTERS. DAN: I AM NOT SAYING IT. MARY ANN: THEN HE SAID THE THING ABOUT THE BLANK STRP. — BLANK STRAP. BUT THEN I THOUGHT OF ALL KINDS OF — DAN: I DID NOT THINK THAT WAS ACTUALLY — DO YOU THINK THAT IS –? YOU DO? SHE DOES NOT WANT TO HAVE TO RE-RUN THE SHOW AND HAVE TO BLEEP IT. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, BLEEPED THE STRAP. I DID NOT THINK THAT WAS BLEEPABLE. MARY ANN: LET ME SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THE TWITTER THING. WHEN YOU LISTEN TO THE NEWS THESE DAYS, YOU SAY WHY DON’T WE HAVE ANYBODY ASKING SOME REAL BONA FIDE , WHY DO YOU THINK THE REPUBLICANS ARE SO RELUCTANT TO SAY WHAT THEY KNOW IS WRONG? AND THEN SOMEONE INEVITABLY SAYS THEY ARE AFRAID. YOU KIND OF DISMISS THAT, BUT THEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT AND SO NOW WHEN I AM ON TWITTER, BECAUSE YOU KNOW I HAVE A BIG MOUTH AND GENERAL, BUT I HAVE NOT HAD THE PRINT ON TWITTER SOMETIMES, AND SOMETIMES, I THINK IN THESE TIMES, SOMEDAY I WILL HAVE TO HAVE TWO FBI PEOPLE AT THE DOOR AND THEY WILL CARRY ME OFF TO SOME HIDDEN CONCENTRATION CAMP. SHE SAID THAT THING TWO DAYS AGO THAT HE NOT ONLY WANTS THE BORDER SECURED. NOW HE WANTS MOATS. DAN: HE DENIES IT. MARY ANN: CROCODILES. DAN: HE DENIES IT. MARY ANN: AND SO HE PUT IT IN THE DENIAL CATEGORY, AND YESTERDAY HE TWEETED NOW THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT MOATS — M- O-O-T-S. AND I WROTE, AND I SAID THIS IS WHEN THE FBI IS COMING TO PUT MY ADDRESS AND THE GPS BECAUSE I SAID BACK TO HIM, MOATS — WITH CROCODILES AND SNAKES IN THEM IS WHAT YOU SHOULD TAKE A SWIM IN. MOOT IS WHAT YOUR PRESIDENCY IS SHORTLY GOING TO BE. A DICTIONARY IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BUY. THEY ARE COMING AFTER ME FOR THAT. BUT IF I AM WORRIED ABOUT THAT THIS LEVEL, IMAGINE HOW SOME REPUBLICAN GUY FROM IOWA IS WORRIED ABOUT WHAT AM I GOING TO DO AS THEY PUT ME THROUGH A VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT AND I HAVE TO SEND MY KIDS TO CANADA. DAN: FINAL THOUGHT ON YOUR CHALLENGE WITH YOUR FRIENDS. I WOULD THINK THAT — MY FEELING IS TO DO NOTHING THAT ADVANCES THIS CONCEPT OF CIVIL WAR THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP REPEATED ON TWITTER. KEEP YOUR FRIENDSHIPS. MARY ANN: WAIT A MINUTE. I HAVE A FRIEND ON THE OTHERS WENT TO ME AND SAID SHE WAS NOT SURE IT WAS GOING TO WORK OUT, THE FRIENDSHIP, BECAUSE THE ABORTION ISSUE HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS A LOT LATELY. IF SHE SAYS THAT TO ME, I AM NOT ALLOWED TO SAY, I UNDERSTAND THAT THAT IS A CONTROVERSIAL ISSUE. BUT THEN I CAN TALK ABOUT CHILDREN IN CAGES, MOATS WITH ALLIGATORS IN THEM, AND TAKING HEALTH CARE AWAY FROM OLD PEOPLE. SO THE OTHER SIDE SHOULD NOT HAVE THEIR RIGHT TO DO IT EITHER. WE ARE BOTH THINKING, WHAT AM I GOING TO SAY AND IS SHE GOING TO SAY THIS OR THAT. YOU SHOULD JUST STAY HOME A6 C13 EAT CHINESE FOOD BY YOURSELF. DAN: I DON’T KNOW. I DON’T LIKE TO — IT MAKES ME CRINGE. ♪ THE REALITIES OF TODAY, THE PERSON EARNS THE MOST VOTES FOR THE PRESIDENT SHOULD BE OUR PRESIDENT. I BELIEVE ONE OF THE MOST PRESSING ISSUES FOR MY GENERATION WHICH IS STUDENT LOAN DEBT. DAN: JOE KENNEDY, YOU ARE A FAN. MARY ANN: I BET HE REALLY HAD A PROBLEM WITH HIS STUDENT LOANS. [LAUGHTER] MARY ANN: THE COLUMN I ORIGINALLY WROTE ABOUT THIS, I TALKED ABOUT HOW, THE LAST THING WE NEED TO DEAL WITH IS A SPOILED BRAT WITH HIS NAME EMBROIDERED ON HIS SHIRTS GOING AFTER A GUY LIKE ED MARKEY WHO WE CAN COUNT ON AND THERE ARE SO FEW THAT WE CAN COUNT ON THESE DAYS. THEY ARE SO SELF ABSORBED, SURE, AND THEY ARE RIGHT MOST OF THE TIME THAT AS LONG AS THEY HAVE THE KENNEDY NAME, THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT. THE FIRST LINE OF THAT COLUMN WAS, EVERYBODY GETS WEAK IN THE KNEES. RHODE ISLAND WITH THE SYNDROME WHEN PATRICK ALREADY ON DRUGS, RAN FOR THE LOCAL LEGISLATURE, AND GOT IN, SO HELLO. HE IS NOT THAT BAD AND PATRICK HAS GONE ON TO DO GOOD THINGS. AT LEAST HE IS USING THE KENNEDY NAME TO ACCOMPLISH SOMETHING HE KNOWS WELL AND THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT ABOUT ADDICTION, ET CETERA. I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THIS KID, BUT IT IS NOT HIS TURN. IT IS JUST NOT HIS TURN. IT IS NOT LIKE THAT GUY IN HERE IS NOT A — IS A BAD GUY. RETURNING OUT OF THIS NIGHTMARE THAT WE ARE LIVING THROUGH, IF DEMOCRATS CAN EVER GET IN AGAIN. DAN: WHAT IS THE FIELD RIGHT NOW? MARY ANN: FOR THAT RACE? DAN: YEAH. MARY ANN: I THINK HE IS THE THIRD PERSON AROUND, BUT NO ONE GETS ANY ATTENTION FOR THESE TWO. BUT MARKEY IS A GENTLEMAN. DAN: THE IDEA OF WAITING YOUR TURN, I AM SURE IT IS GOING TO MAKE MOST PEOPLE IN THIS AUDIENCE BRISTLE BECAUSE — I DON’T, BUT I THINK MOST PEOPLE WILL BECAUSE POLITICS HAS NOW BEEN VIEWED AS A COMPLETELY DIRTY WORD. I HAVE NEVER FELT LIKE — THE DEMOCRACIES GASOLINE IS POLITICS. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE POLITICS, YOU DO NOT HAVE THE DEMOCRACY, RIGHT? THE IDEA THAT YOU HAVE TO WAIT YOUR TURN, THE FIX IS IN, IT IS ALL ORGANIZED, PARTY POLITICS, ALL OF THAT SORT OF THING IS PART OF A DISCONNECT AND AGGRAVATION THAT PEOPLE HAVE IN A LOT OF WAYS BECAUSE OF THE DISCONNECT AND LACK OF ACUMEN FOR HOW THINGS HAVE WORKED WELL SO FAR. DO YOU HEAR WHAT I AM SAYING? MARY ANN: I DO. IT IS TRUE THAT PECKING ORDER AND WAITING YOUR TURN — NO ONE SAYS IT ANYMORE. HOWEVER, IT IS THERE. IF YOU JUST WATCH THESE COMMITTEE HEARINGS AND YOU SEE HOW THESE PEOPLE INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER, I AM NOT GOING TO NAME NAMES, BUT THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE THAT ARE IN THE SENATE AND CONGRESS THAT WHEN YOU SEE THESE ON THE DIFFERENT HEARINGS, SOME OF THEM, THEY REALLY ARE DUMB. THEY HAVE BEEN IN OFFICE FOR 150 YEARS, BUT THEY ARE REALLY DUMB. ADD TO THAT SOME OTHER FACTOR BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT TO INSULT A FILL IN THE BLANK. A WOMAN, AN OLDER WOMAN,SOMEONE HANDICAPPED, SOMEONE WHO IS GAY — IF YOU ADD IN ONE OF THOSE FACTORS, OR TWO OR MORE, YOU REALLY HAVE A SILENCING ISSUE. THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN THERE TOO LONG. I AM NOT DISCOUNTING — BUT THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE SAID, WHEN YOU HAVE — MARKEY HAS NOT BEEN THERE THAT LONG. THIS IS A GOOD, SOLID DEMOCRATS WITH RESPECT, WITH A COTERIE OF CONNECTIONS THAT ARE IMPORTANT. WE ARE IN THIS CRISIS MODE NOW. THE LAST THING WE NEED IS THIS YOUNG ONE COMING IN AND THROWING EVERYTHING IN THE AIR. YOU SAY THE PECKING ORDER IS DEAD, BUT IN THE MINDS OF MANY OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE STILL IN POWER IN CONGRESS , THEY WILL NEVER FORGET THAT THIS KID JUMPED THE LINE. THE NEXT TIME HE IS ON A COMMITTEE — THEY SAY WALK — WATCH OUT FOR THIS KID. IT AFFECTS YOUR ABILITY TO SEIZE POWER IN A FULL WAY. DAN: IS THERE ANY LEVEL OF HYPOCRISY IN THAT BETWEEN YOUR ARGUMENT OF FEMINISM AND THE THING I WILL COIN AFTER LISTENING, AGEISM? THE KID JUMPED THE SHIP. DO YOU SEE A CONFLICT OF PRINCIPLE THERE? MARY ANN: I DON’T THINK THAT THERE IS ANY WAY TO AVOID DISCUSSION OF AGE. I UNDERSTAND THAT PEOPLE FOR EXAMPLE ARE WITH THE JOE BIDEN DISCUSSION. HE’S ONLY LIKE THREE DAYS OLDER THAN THE PRESIDENT. IT IS CLEARLY POLITICAL. BUT I UNDERSTAND THE CONCERN, BECAUSE THE REALITY — DAN: I AM TALKING ABOUT THE REVERSE AGE — THAT HE IS TOO YOUNG TOO? MARY ANN: THE KINDS OF PEOPLE I AM TALKING ABOUT THAT WILL SAY THAT, SOMEONE WHO IS 57 IS A KID BECAUSE THEY ARE 78. DAN: I LOVE HEARING THAT. MARY ANN: BECAUSE YOU ARE 57. DAN: 58. MARY ANN: IS THAT HOW OLD? I AM 76 AND I HAVE MORE ENERGY THAN YOU DO. WHY NOT — WANNA RACE? I GET YOUR POINT. DAN: — MARY ANN: I WAS PART OF A GROUP AND WE SOLD THE FIRST ONE DOLLAR SHARES, YOU COULD BUY A SHARE IN FEDERAL HEALTH AND WE BUILT THE FIRST ONE LEVEL RANCH HOUSES. MY GRANDPARENTS LIVED THERE AND MY MOTHER AND FATHER. I AM SAD NOT ONLY ABOUT — DAN: STABBING. MARY ANN: ANOTHER STABBING, BUT I AM SAD TO SEE ALL OF PROVIDENCE GOING THROUGH A SLOW, PAINFUL DEATH. THE WHOLE CITY. I CAME FROM MOUNT PLEASANT, AND I DRIVE THROUGH THERE AND I GO TO MY MOTHER’S HOUSE, AND I AM GRATEFUL THAT IT IS BEING WELL-KEPT, BUT THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD IS DIFFERENT. WE ARE NOT FAR FROM A LOT OF HOMELESS PEOPLE ALL OVER THE CITY, SLEEPING ON THE SIDEWALK. WE HAVE SOME, BUT NOT ANYWHERE NEAR. DAN: IS THERE A GRAND SOLUTION? MARY ANN: THERE IS A WHOLE THING THAT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT ABOUT CITIES ARE GETTING OLDER AND WHAT WE LET HAPPEN. WE DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THAT NOW. I WILL COME BACK. ♪ DAN: YOUR SECOND PIECE, BY THE WAY, MA ANN SORRENTINO IS NOW READ EVERY FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH ON “THE BOSTON GLOBE” ONLINE RIGHT NOW. “THE BOSTON GLOBE” HAS ENTERED THE MARKETPLACE IN RHODE ISLAND AND IS DOING PRETTY GOOD JOURNALISTIC WORK WITH SEVERAL JOURNALISTS. IT IS GOOD STUFF. WE DO NOT HAVE A LOT OF TIME, BUT YOU WR ITE VERY WARMLY ABOUT A SURGEON WHO DIED EARLY. MARY ANN: I JUST HAD LUNCH WITH HIS WIDOW TODAY WHOM I HAD NEVER KNOWN BEFORE. ANNE COLUMBO, THE WIFE OF MIKE COLUMBO, A GREAT SURGEON WHO OPERATED ON MY HUSBAND THREE YEARS AGO. HE WAS THE MOST ELEGANT, KIND, COMMITTED SURGEON THAT I HAVE EVER MET, AND I STARTED WORKING IN THE MEDICAL FIELD AS A MANAGER IN 1963, SO I’LL WORK WITH AND HIRED A LOT OF SURGEONS , AND THIS MAN HAD NONE OF THAT. HE WOULD LOOK ME IN THE EYE, HE WAS SERIOUS, BUT HE HAD A WONDERFUL SENSE OF HUMOR. HE HAD THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GESTURE, BUT HE WA JUST AN ELEGANT MAN. HIS IS VERY SAD, BECAUSE HE WAS SICK FOR VERY LONG AND VERY PRIVATE ABOUT IT. AND THEN POOF, HE WAS GONE. WHAT A GIFT IT IS IF YOU ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH IN YOUR LIFETIME TO HAVE A TEACHER LIKE THIS, AND DR. PALUMBO HAD SO MANY KUDOS AND HE NEVER TALKED ABOUT THEM. HE JUST DID HIS JOB. HIS WIFE WAS TELLING ME TODAY IF SHE HAD FRIENDS GO TO HIS HUSBAND, HE WOULD SAY, H — HOW’S PATSY, AND HE WOULD SAY, CALL PATSY. HE WAS NEVER GOING TO TALK ABOUT THEM. I ASKED THE GUY UPSTAIRS . DAN: YOU WRITE ELEGANTLY ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT HIM. MARY ANN: IF YOU DIE FIRST, I WILL WRITE SOMETHING AS NICE ABOUT YOU. [LAUGHTER] DAN: I THINK THAT IS GOOD. MARY ANN: YOU’RE GOING TO THE REUNION, DON’T WORRY ABOUT DYING. DAN: EXACTLY. “THE BOSTON GLOBE” ONLINE. EVERY FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH. DAN: ON THE MONDAY PROGRAM, WE REVISIT THE CONVERSATION WE HAD WITH THE IGT CHAIRMAN, BOB VINSON. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE FOLKS IN TWIN RIVER ARE GOING TO APPEAR ON THIS PROGRAM NEXT WEEK, SO WE WILL GET SOME ANSWERS ON THE OTHER SITE OF THIS CONTENTIOUS, MONEY GRAB GOING ON IN THE STATE. IN THE MEANTIME, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND. ♪
