I still can't kick someone when I think they're down!

Yesterday, it was revealed that one of the talk show hosts in my area, Maxwell from WMMS/100.7, was gone from his show. This got the message boards in motion. Of course, I got in on the action, as it had to do with radio. And then I got pulled into the action, as I got a mention on one of the chat boards. Someone had posted that I (WIXY) should have the show on WMMS from 3-7, as I get under Triv's skin more than any other poster.

I politely declined, saying that they have to find another screwball moron, Triv's term of endearment for me.

For those out of the area and the loop, Triv is Mike Trivisonno, afternoon personality at WTAM/1100. He also recently lost his wife to cancer. Mike and Linda had been married almost 40 years. Cliff Note: Someone please correct me on this if I'm wrong.

Anyway, I think fun is fun, but I still wouldn't enter in that opening. I also don't believe in kicking someone when they're down, as I would think somebody who is recently widowed would be right before the holidays.

I'm proud to say that I was raised better than that.

Hi Cliff,

I agree with you.. There are lines we draw and going after someone when they are suffering is not the way to go... I am praying for him and his family during this difficult time for them...

Take care,
Leesa
