Curmudgeon’s Corner: Failing to Predict the Past

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s big topics are the gun control debate and the apparent Trump campaign implosion. Other topics are kid’s summer activities, Brexit (recorded before the vote), and the process of choosing Presidential Electors. For a change of pace, Sam wraps it up with interviews of several delegates to the 2016 Washington State Democratic Convention.
