Harris Online BlogDaily throughts from Paul Harris
I don’t listen to much radio anymore, but when I poked around to some local stations recently, instead of gripping content, I heard these three longtime pet peeves that may never go away.

A Newsmax host is the latest loudmouth to make an absolutely ridiculous claim about COVID vaccines. As soon as I heard what he said, I was reminded of a segment of my radio show from several years ago.

I’ve been binge-watching some episodes of “Later with Bob Costas,” remembering how good his one-on-one conversations with guests were, and wondering why NBC hasn’t revived them for its streaming platform, Peacock.
An American runner won’t be allowed in the Olympics after testing positive for a chemical found in marijuana.
