email laugher
Brad, I love your show, and the man in the background laughing is great. I enjoy hearing him and wish you could keep him laughing more often. If he stops, I'll stop listening to you, even tho I really admire you and your comments. Those griping people need to get a new life!

email laugher
Are those people in the background live or canned?
Bill W

Bill, laughing boy is Brian Parrish, who runs the studio for Jack Riccardi and me. Brian is a very intelligent, well-informed and overqualified young man who laughs when he feels like it, and who would probably walk if someone tried to make laughing mandatory.

email laugher
Oh please, don't tell me someone is complaining about laughter!?? Has the world lost its sense of humor. I mean, really, these days ya gotta laugh or never stop crying.

email laugher
The laughter is a great addition to the shows. Please don't silence Brian!

email laugh poll
That’s too funny. The results are private? ... I like to hear the guy laughing... Have a great day. You are much better than Rush.
Arline H, Dilley, Texas

Arline, I took that poll after becoming curious when someone called Jack's show and deemed the laughter "inane" and Jack stomped on the caller's head. Between you and me, the poll on the audible laughter came out like this: Pleasant 141, Not a factor 100, Distraction 19, Irritating 86.

email Schiavo politics
Brad, I want to thank you for making it easy to connect to our state and congressional leaders thru your website. I have sent letters to my reps and the president this morning because I am absolutely appalled at their actions re: the Schiavo situation. This scares me more than any other action that this body of mis-representatives has taken. I only hope that more people take a few minutes to do the same. I salute the 58 patriots who voted against it.
