Good morning KSR readers. I’ve got two pictures for you before we get things rolling today. The first is of Clay Aiken, former American Idol star turned Broadway actor who is now running for a Congressional seat in North Carolina. Aiken won the Democratic primary after his opponent, 71-year-old Keith Crisco, mysteriously fell down a flight of stairs and died. At the time, Aiken was ahead by 390 votes. Matt’s been talking about the story on the radio all week, and this morning, we were sent this picture of Clay in a Kentucky shirt, adding more fuel to the Tom Leach murder-for-hire conspiracy (disclaimer: we don’t think Tom Leach actually murdered Keith Crisco).
The second picture is of future Cat Tyler Ulis and former Card Chane Behanan, who are apparently “bros” and worked out late last night with “Coach Roc,” who is not Rock Oliver, but skills specialist Eric Nawracaj, who has been working with Ulis for a while. Let’s just hope “big bro” doesn’t pass along any bad habits.
Finally, in case you missed it, Casey Kasem has been found! After my news and views dedication last night, the police discovered that Kasem was indeed in Washington state, where many believed his wife had taken him to get him away from his children. The 82-year-old Kasem suffers from Lewy body dementia, and on May 7, disappeared from his nursing home. Stay safe, Casey.
