    Yasha sounds better, Mark looks better- it’s a Kennedy/Nixon thing, and we all know who deserved to win; Neither one.

    But seriously, This illustrated the story very well. I’m a Radio-phile and listening reminded me of my account of getting arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge(which was referenced)- [Spam if you’ll allow me-

    I was treated fairly humanely- The LAPD raid sounds much more punitive and horrible. Some accounts of the NYPD entrapment were similar, but being held for the maximum amount of time and held for the maximum amount of bail is total shit. I was processed and let go- as should have Mr. Levine.

    Never Forget!
