Living In The City
Today's show is dedicated to the memory of Gavi Springut, who passed away way too young a few days ago.
Later in today's show we will be having Democratic Mayoral candidates Tom Richards (incumbant mayor), and challenger Lovely Warren in studio. We discuss the current rash of violence in the city, how city residents seem to be in as much danger recently as military people in war zones, and a shooting last night on Salina St.
We also discuss the tough question... who do you save in a fire... your pet or a complete stranger? Marianne thinks that is ridiculous, but the rest of us see an arguement for the animals.

The Orioles beat the Yanks last night... kudos to whomever put an app on Wease's phone to send him Yankees updates whenever something happens.
The fast paced Philly Eagles beat the Redskins 33-27, and the Texans come from 21 down to win on a FG with time running out against the Chargers.

Most folks would probably prefer an air-conditioned No-Tell Motel on a scorching September day in South Florida for some nookie time.
This couple setled for a no-A/C, abandoned building behind a chain-link fence.
When the Fort Lauderdale cop responded to a report of a naked couple walking around an abandoned motel on a busy portion of Federal Highway, he found Alan Harrold, 37, and Crystal Potter, 33, having sex in plain view of passers-by, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Shane Everett Earp allegedly called 911 to report that his home had been burglarized, according to a news release from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
The 40-year-old Key Largo man told dispatchers that an anonymous caller had contacted him about the about the break-in, and wasn’t home at the time, the release stated.
Responding deputies reported that they found the front door of the home open and a woman inside who turned out to be Earp’s girlfriend.
Then Earp showed up as well.
Earp told the deputies he had called in the break-in because he had broken up with his girlfriend the night before and didn’t want her to damage anything inside the home, according to the report.
Earp and his girlfriend had both been living in the house, and she had every legal right to be there -- whether he was there or not, deputies said.
Earp is charged with Misuse of the 911 System and was hauled to the pokey for the 8th time since August 2002, inmate records show.

Perhaps the internet site Craig’s List, was not the best place to sell tractor weights after all.
State Police in Wolcott reported the arrest on Tuesday (9/3) of Robert Manley, age 32, of Butler Center Road in the Town of Butler for Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 4th Degree.
