Despite my starting out of the tent (fort), this episode recovers and leads us careening through a variety of subjects. Florida makes several appearances and Mike and Spike bring the smut. We, verbally, visit the Middle East, Massa's and the back room of the Best Show. Foreshortened due to a glitch in my new mp3 converter. "I don't care, you win some; you lose some."
