Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.
Next, Mitch Ryder was the leader of the rock group Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, and had hits including “Devil with a Blue Dress On” and “Sock It to Me Baby.” After achieving pop success he descended into addiction and bankruptcy - and lived to tell about it.

Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Jessica Paris. Summer is fast approaching – the season of taking a break, cutting yourself some slack, and indulging in a little R-and-R. Paris says we should just say no to those impulses. She says she is not a puritan or a miser, but in a world of bounty, choices have to be made. Paris doesn’t believe we satiate our desire by feeding it any more than we do by depriving it. And sometimes deprivation leads to greater satisfaction than indulgence. [Broadcast Date: May 18, 2012]
