Salute To Narcissism

We planning our shows and then having to adjust them based on sudden political developments. Today, however, our planned show is about narcissism, and it's pretty easy to incorporate politics into that.

While he was working on a book called "The Narcisism Epidemic," researcher Keith Campbell, one our guests today, started getting calls from friends and relatives who had, essentially, new narcissist  sightings.

My favorite was an SUV, parked in a no parking zone, facing the wrong way, blocking a stop sign, and wearing a bumper sticker that said "I heart Me."

Why is Enfield constantly the battleground for First Amendment issues? (Remember this was the town that gave us the graduation-in-a-church case.)

This weekend, anybody famous who isn't on the Mall with John Stewart and Stephen Colbert will be in Connecticut instead. Or maybe both places at once. Glenn Beck will be in West Hartford. Barack Obama will go through Bridgeport. And Bill Clinton will visit the University of Hartford.
