    Can’t Beat Tom
    Monty writes to Dick: I see you’re doing another 5 shows with Tom Merritt.  If you want your career go down the drain, you can’t beat Tom Merritt.

    Keychain Camera as a Probe
    Monty has been thinking about the keychain spy camera (Episode 1029), and suggests that one get a remote control helicopter, mount the camera on the copter, to survey and probe the hard-to-reach corners of your house.

    Episode 1150

    An Article on the Litesign
    Read an archive article on the New York Times on today's warehouse gadget the Litesign.

    A Brighter Intro
    Today’s warehouse intro was written by Dan Warner, whose letter was read earlier in the week in Episode 1147.

    Solving the Socks Conundrum
    Kim, a defensive federal litigation lawyer, has a well kept secret, and a solution to the disappearing single sock conundrum (Episode 1141).  Throughout the past 20 years of lawyering, he has never worn a matching pair of socks.  How about that?  It’s liberating.  Leo wore a non-matching pair of shoes to his wedding rehearsal.  Perhaps not so liberating.

    Liberating Leo
    More liberating may be the absence of Leo from the Daily Giz Wiz for the next 2 weeks.  At least for Leo, although he may be LiveU-ing taking Abby to college.

    New York Heat Wave

    Corporate Uniforms for Congressmen
    Dick likes a tweet that he read recently: “Congressmen should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors.”

    Cruzin’ Cooler Trouble
    Ross Craig tweets to Dick about the story of someone getting a ticket from a cop for drink-driving the Cruzin’ Cooler (Episode 101) on the pavement.  Read the story here.

    Missed Opportunity
    Brad Kitchener writes: Dick and Leo have missed a great business opportunity.  Just imagine combining the Mickey, Minnie, Goofy Talking Watch (Episode 1140), the Pill Timer (Episode 1139) and the Pez dispenser, throw in Mr T, and they’ll have a great product.

    New Friday
    Dan Warner from Richmond, Virginia was listening to Episode 1135 and found that the Warehouse Friday intros are gradually making Dick sound like a sinister malevolent moron presiding over a ghoulish hellscape, that bears no relation to the man he listens to 5 days a week.  Dan has written a more cheerful care-bear intro for this Friday.  Watch out!
