Today on the Menu: Gov. Mark Sanford’s Book Deal, Misues of Michael Jackson Imagery, Catcher in the Rye Sequel Killed and Author Hyatt Bass Spits Fire

By Matt Van Hoven 

Today on the menu I showed up late, as usual. I swear, I’ll get this thing down soon. Luckily, pioneering/flexible cohost Jason Boog fumbled not, and the show went on amicably. Radio = large learning curve.

Did you know Gov. Mark Sanford had a book deal in the works before this whole scandal? Yeah, he did, and now no one knows if the thing will make it to press; it was about politics or something.

CNN keeps failing and now it may cost them some money. Apparently the 25ish hours of Michael Jackson coverage they did included imagery they didn’t own (or ask for the copyrights to), and now the owners want some scratch.

The Catcher in the Rye
is J.D. Salinger’s work, and no one is going to write a sequel, says a judge. The reclusive Salinger, 90, successfully staved off another author’s attempt to publish a novel set 60 years after the original.

And finally, author Hyatt Bass came on to tell us about her new book. I swear, we’ll get some ad stuff in there next week.
