Comic Strip Marathon: Post #12 Free breakfast?

After an unfair amount of bluster, the daylight is sneaking into the club and it’s time for the "free breakfast" for patrons still hanging around the Comic Strip. Barry Weintraub took the stage at 7 a.m. and asked audience members if they were enjoying the grub…a muffin and a glass of OJ. "They spare no expense, don’t they?" Weintraub quipped. He wanted to talk politics, from the night before and going back to Reagan. Even if most of the kids in the audience wouldn’t remember the late president. "I really think politics goes over better at 8:30," he said. "The 8:30 a.m. crowd really is into politics." Weintraub just got a text message and read it onstage. His friend is outraged that Hillary Clinton hasn’t conceded the presidential campaign yet. "How many people are getting irate political texts at 7:15 in the morning, and they know I’m excited to get them?" Weintraub laughs along with the audience.

In other news: I am opening another can of Red Bull. 2:09, 4:15, and now 7:15…What food pairs well with Red Bull? At this hour, I’m thinking almost anything.
