VIP CLUB, GRIPE OF THE DAY:  Regulations

Sign up to be a WIBX VIP Club member and stand a chance to win some great prizes.  Type in today’s Gripe of the Day, Hometown of the Day and Newsmaker of the Day – in order to win.

Today’s Gripe:  Regulations.  We seem to over regulate in an effort to create the perfect world…which we’ll never be able to create, by the way.  A trivial example, apple cider.  It just doesn’t taste the same when it’s homogenized…but leave it to the government to regulate it…so nobody can ever get sick.

Willie Waffle Movie Review

It was a decision between two movies this week, since both were shown on the same night.  You tell me which you think I saw:Prisoners – Hugh Jackman is a father who takes matters into his own hands when his daughter disappears.  Getting tons of Oscar buzz.Battle of the Year – A movie about “The Olympics of Break Dancing” starring Chris Brown.He saw the Chris Brown movie and loved it.  Called it intense.  Out of four waffles, he gave this one 4 waffles.
