Aside from the garage wood, garage cardboard is essential to the garage. Joe gives Rookie and Reuvers some cardboard and makes it sound like it is gold. Joe then tells a couple of old work stories before the Scramble>
Joe directs a question to the staff: Who do we work for? The government thinks that it has the right to tell us when we may or may not leave our houses during weather events, etc. Is it Who or Whom? The staff tries to figure that out.
Property rights come up on Garage Logic today. A Mac-Groveland in Saint Paul has been purchased and the new owner wants to tear it down and build two new ones on the lot. Joe thinks that groups get too much attention. A big time car chase on 35W.

Joe brings up measles and vaccinations and is quite sorry that he did. An F-18 story for the ages. The staff is still having some plumbing problems. Joe describes the puzzle of the government.
The big storm out east hits Boston but not New York. The media, as of yesterday, had NY preparing for the worst storm ever. Media outlets are doing poor reporting, according to Joe. Souch provides a history of the largest snowstorms out east.
Joe provides a history of Minnesota snowstorms. Super sized X-ray machines for the Super Bowl? Yes theses babies are giant and directly from the border. Rookie posts a 'sock selfie' What's the deal with a guy taking selfies?
Joe responds to the network television news outlets out there. You don't have snow yet! After you get the snow you can send reporters out there. They are reporting on nothing right now.
The murder in Willernie has Joe's attention. What is the real story? Did all of this happen as a result of a underage drinker? A British firm is manufacturing mosquitoes to kill disease? Wow, that 's Michael Crichton stuff. Guess what turned 80?
Joe gets down to business on a Scramble Friday. He gets through numerous e-mails and then is sidetracked by sunset times across the state, country and continent. Joe, Rookie and Reuvers get into a debate about it. Stu the medallion hunter checks in

The show starts with Joe giving us 'something to worry about' They have moved the atomic clock. People in the know, say that man is harming the earth. B as in B, S as in S Joe says. Rookie tells a 'Nope" story. Billionaire tells us to need less.
Joe gives the listeners some dope on the Washington Post. They are no longer a news paper in his opinion. Their story on engine sounds is incomplete. Stanley Gordon West, an early Twin Cities self publisher, has died. A Bear Update for Joe.
Joe admits to not viewing the State of the Union speech from President Obama last night. Instead he went to go see American Sniper. The discussion then turns to information on what a sniper really does. Then on to the NFL and the ball controversy.
