This lady is brave or……

Bourbon On The Rocks for the first day of February is packed with stuff and here is some of it.

* Most everyone in the country has now heard about the Larry Nassar case. The disgraced former Dr for the U.S.Olympic team and Michigan State University pleaded guilty to charges brought against him last month. After over 265 women spoke at his sentencing hearing about abuse from him, his lawyer ( Shannon Smith) now says”there is a huge part of me that doesn’t believe all those girls were victimized by him.”

Duke plays the report and asks if she is the bravest person on the planet or the craziest.

( Charlie Langton story from Fox 2 Detroit )

* Now that is Feb 1st it is time to get ready for LOTS of info and stay involved in your community. Are you ready?

* Also Feb 1st has a lot of meaning and Duke goes over why.

All this plus THIS DAY IN HISTORY and more on Bourbon On THe Rocks on FTR Radio.
