Radio Show Line-up

The Interview: Tim Devaney is a national reporter at The Washington Times based in D.C., where he covers business and the economy. In his spare time, he also jokes about the news coming out of Capitol Hill.

Tim had a passion for journalism from a young age. As a kid, his neighbor called him the “Question Boy,” because he never stopped asking. His curiosity led him to report for newspapers such as The Washington Times, Detroit News, and Portland Press Herald in Maine. Recently, he’s been writing about the fiscal cliff and the European financial crisis. His stories can be found at www.washingtontimes.com.

When he’s not writing serious news, you can find his political comedy at www.thegoofypress.com, where Tim offers his funny, sarcastic, not-so-serious take on news of the day. Look for his jokes about the fiscal cliff, Chick-fil-A, Twinkies, Ho Ho’s, David Patraeus and Benghazi.

It’s Foreign to Me: With Hotshot (HotShotPerformer.comThis week our fiasco commentator at large . . . Now that the end of the world is here you might be wondering what life will be like. Will we all really have no condiments but really cool hair? It seems like everybody has great hair in all those post-apocalyptic movies. (Apparently no shortage of stylists after infrastructures have broken down and we’re all scrounging for the last drop of gas and water.) Well, have no fear, the apocalypse might be fun! Think about it. No more fiscal cliff to worry about. No more Starbucks line. No more trying to figure out which side of the gun issue you’re on. Wow, not even a minute into this article and we’ve already found 3 great things about the end of the world!

Truth be told, there are millions of people in our country and around the world who are prepping for a breakdown of society. Everybody seems to have their own idea of what exactly will cause this breakdown but one things for sure, it’s becoming easier and easier for everybody to imagine. We are even privy to an entire realty TV show based on it now. So if the end of the world does come tomorrow, are you ready? Do you have your App for that? Your, Find the closest bomb shelter app? The Which stores haven’t been looted yet app? Wait a minute, there wont be an internet! WooHoo! Another good thing about the end of the world! No more facebook!

Let’s delve into it on this week’s show. Can you remember a time like this? It’s like biblical, Old Testament stuff. Earthquakes and super storms and floods and tsunamis. Economic collapse, social unrest and starbucks downsizing their number of stores! Before too long we’ll be wishing we did start a global conversation about the upcoming zombie apocalypse. Ok. That’s probably where I lost a huge bunch of ya, huh? Zombies. But, believe it or not there is a huge portion of our populace that believes that a biological catastrophe could cause a zombie horde to attack your house. And if you don’t have some Justin Beiber CDs to play to distract the zombies, you’re doomed. (And playing those might even attract some Beiber fans so the zombies have a snack while you make your escape.)

When we do start thinking about it, there are many, many ways the world could end tomorrow. Hey, I know! (Lightbulb) I’ll grill our fearless host Will Roberts on this week’s show on ‘um. He’s got a kid now and needs to know this stuff. ; ) Daunting as it is, we will try to make heads or tales of it all in this weeks segment of … It’s foreign to me. Tune in because after the end of the world there’ll be no more radio to tune in to. Wow! Another good thing about the end of the world!



PICTURE THIS: chatting up corners of the world (ArmandThomas.com)  Armand Thomas and Will Roberts Will talk about and view shots Armand took in Venezuela.

Hugo Chavez is said to be fighting for his life — not against Western imperialism or crony capitalism, but plain old stupid cancer.

As the Venezuelan President is in Cuba for another round of chemo, his nation holds its collective breath, refusing to even celebrate the new year.
But while a pall has descended upon his people, many Americans cheer his downfall.
Why is he so reviled here?
Is he really such a menace, or did he simply stand up to Uncle Sam’s bullying influence in Latin America?
Remember Chile and Pinochet? Argentina’s junta? El Salvador? Panama’s Noriega? The Contras in Nicaragua?
If nothing else, Chavez’s legacy will have been to restore the fierce pride and identity of this struggling South American nation.
