This week, Mona and I bring some Hollywood glamour to Need to Know — in the form of our guest, Rob Long. Actually, as Ricochet podcasters, we’re sort of Rob’s guests. Anyway, to read Rob, to listen to Rob — this is a great pleasure, whatever your politics. I can’t imagine a Marxist wouldn’t enjoy him. He would have to be the most humorless Marxist on the planet (and that’s some competition). Rob was a writer for, and producer of, Cheers when he was about eleven years old. Now he is a sage, but not wizened. Still very hip, rest assured.
