119. Jenneration Crazy

ntk-logoThe word crazy leaps to the lips this week as Jay and Mona consider the elite’s celebration of Bruce Jenner’s dysphoria. His unhappiness is sad, but the culture’s rush to celebrate and endorse his delusion that he is, in fact, a woman, is the crazy part. Also, do we never simply avert our gaze from these things?

While Jay and Mona are often gloomy – and with good reason – there are flashes of blue sky duly noted this week. The abortion rate is down, as are Hillary Clinton’s approval ratings.

Conversation flows to Barack Obama, Marco Rubio, George Stephanapoulos, Tiger Woods, and a fabulous horse with a misspelled name: American Pharoah. We close with A Fugue for Tin Horns, from Guys and Dolls, which should make you smile.
