Good. May I ask you to look after the joint for the next week or so?
I've been completely tied up all week and will be away all this coming week and may be jammed up for a bit thereafter. I'll try to monitor comments for suitability, but thankfully you guys have gotten the gestalt and behavior is almost always within the bounds of acceptable Tickety discourse.
I can't believe I'm away during all these exciting events:
-- The single most significant Ticket event since I've been listening, including the move to Victory: The inauguration of 96.7 FM as a home for The Ticket. I am predicting a mass migration from 1310 within that listening area. I am particularly interested in whether the station acknowledges this amazing event in some way. No one's been in touch re a commission check, so I am assuming this site's trailblazing role will be ruthlessly suppressed. (See, among others, Prescient Plainsman 96.7 Argument.)
-- The Galloway retirement. I'm glad we've had some people posting their positive memories of his past broadcasts. I tried to listen a few times the past couple of years. Tough.
-- The Chris Arnold plagiarism. Yeah. What was he thinking? I'm thinking maybe he did not create that post, that some minion did it for him. I haven't seen anything on any discipline planned for him, or on his own reaction. Is it out there? Someone mentioned that Bob probably keeps an eye out for this stuff, and in fact I recall that he did catch someone copying his stuff awhile back. Let me see if I can find it.
Well, it's not exactly plagiarism in the Chris Arnold sense, but here's what I was remembering:

Gotta go. Thanks for keeping the fires banked, everyone.
