Curmudgeon’s Corner: Superfluous Straight Lines

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Ivan and Sam discuss the Republican National Convention, the events in Kenosha and their aftermath, and the latest pandemic news. Along the way they revisit the debate on what constitutes a website, they discuss ceramic car coatings, and spin tales of fender benders and dog walks. Enjoy the madness!
