Gus talks about a tragic story that took place in his hometown of Tampa where a deputy sheriff, Corporal Brian LaVigne, who was one day away from retirement, was killed on the job on Monday. After lamenting his death, Gus reminds us that none of us are promised tomorrow and talks with listeners who've either had a near-death experience or were with a loved one when he or she passed away.
Also, last week, Gus read an opinion piece written by Msgr. Charles Pope entitled "5 Hard Truths We've Come to See with 2020 Vision." At the end of the article, Msgr. Pope said he had five more hard truths and, yesterday, he published those. Gus reads his latest piece and gets reaction from listeners.
And, Bob Dunning calls in to recap Alabama's national championship win as well as this unique college football season.
