If you want to know why I love social media, look no farther than Episode 132. Without Twitter, it could not have happened and here’s why. A couple of months ago, I had a brief exchange with actor, director, and musician Robert Davi about his new album Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance. He thanked me for spreading the word about it and while I was impressed that someone as busy (and, let’s face it, ridiculously successful) would actually stop and thank someone he didn’t know for something as relatively small as a tweet, I didn’t think any more about it. Then, last week, I thought I’d invite Davi on the show, again using Twitter, and don’t you know he accepted! He spent an entire segment on this week’s show talking about his album, his musical history (which goes back quite a long way) and what he’s planning for the future. Davi is a smart and witty guy and his segment is easily one of the best conversations I’ve had on The Delivery. Do check it out and pick up his album. You won’t regret the purchase. Also, look into the movie he made a few years ago called The Dukes, which has quite a bit of good music in it as well.
I returned to the subject of the Occupy Whatever movement in the first half of the show. It’s curious to me that our President and his administration have no apparent interest in upholding the law as concerns the Occupy DC movement yet hold the Tea Parties in open contempt. I’m not happy about that, and I can’t imagine why any of you would be either. Right now, there is a clear divide between those to whom the laws of our nation applies and those to whom they don’t, and the administration has very clearly put its political foes in the latter bucket. Equal protection under the law is a bedrock principle that should never be shoved aside for cheap political gains.The Delivery - Episode 132
