Hey, everybody! Orange State was back after a Thanksgiving week hiatus and was as strong as ever!
Rashaud brought the headlines to us. On the positive side, the jobless rate dropped just in time for the holidays. Plus, we all are annoyed by snoring, but would you actually attack your father over it? In some major media news, Comcast will buy NBC from General Electric. The price tag . . . $30 billion. A little out of our range here at Orange State. In addition, a study shows that cell phone usage doesn't cause brain cancer. Whew!
Matt and Grant talked to the Government Editor from the Albany Times Union, Casey Seiler, about the failure of New York's gay rights bill to pass the State Senate and what is the next step in this fight. Then Matt and Grant express their opinions on the failure of the bill to pass.
Then Matt and Grant played the Orange State of Disarray. Grant won this time in a new multiple choice format. (Matt and Grant are tied 3-3 this season.) Jim brought us some more Audacity of Dopes. Yet again we seem to be giving advice to criminals. Two criminals saw a plasma TV in a home. Unfortunately, once they were inside what turned out to be a vacant display home, the thieves realized the TV was made of cardboard. Now that's embarrassing. Plus, have trouble getting a job? One man obviously did so he held a gun to the head of a Taco Bell cashier and then the manager demanding a job. Well, that's all. Enjoy!
