We discuss the terrible school situation in Pittsburgh yesterday where at least 20 people were stabled by a teenage student named Alex Hribal. There are conflicting reports on the number of people hurt, how bad the injuries are, and Hribal’s motivation (although it seems his being bullied was a factor).
Other angles from this story include talking about how teens communicate differently from past generations, social media, video games, and stabbing vs. use of a gun.
John Ditullio Time
The Masters golf tournament is starting, and like most of the big sporting events authorities are cracking down on prostitution and sex trafficking.
While talking about the list of stars that Derek Jeter has dated John says that Jeter used to play Mariah Carey music in the locker room when they were dating. Do you lose your man card for playing the pop diva while your Yankee teammates are trying to get psyched.
We're joined in studio by WHEC Channel 10's Amanda Ciavarri who is covering the Dawn Nguyen trial. Amanda talks about all the drama surrounding the trial... damning texts, jealousy, sex, and a possibilty that Nguyen knew Spengler was dangerous, and what his motive was when she bought the gun.
Nursing Home Strippers
A Long Island man is suing a nursing home on behalf of his 85-year-old mother ... claiming she was swindled out of money and humiliated when the home shipped in male strippers.
Franklin Youngblood claims he found the photo of his mom Bernice at the East Neck Nursing Center. He says when he confronted the nurses, they stonewalled him and even tried to snatch the pic away.
Youngblood says he learned the strippers were hired as part of an "entertainment event" planned by the facility and that it wasn't just a one-time thing.
Youngblood claims his mother suffers from Alzheimer's, advanced dementia and is confined to a wheelchair, which made her unable to fend off the stripper. He also claims the dollar bills were taken from her personal account.
The facility has yet to comment.

A Day In The Lives Of Pauly And Billy
Pauly talks about an issue he had yesterday after the show where he got a call from our receptionist saying someone was here to see him. Turns out it was a lawyer to serve him paper... he's being taken to court by his former landlady. Even though he's out of the apartment he's not thru with her.
Last night Billy and Susan went to see a Tyler Perry play at the Auditorium Theater. Billy talks about the difference between shows aimed at black people, like this Perry play, and the ones attended by mostly white folks. The black people were dressed amazingly and looked so awesome. The differences at the concession stands made Billy laugh... normally you can get beer, wine, maybe a mixed drink, Coke, 7-Up, etc... At a Tyler Perry play Hennessey, orange pop, and lemonade were also available.
