    I was struck by the similarity between Jonah’s confusion about the phrase pre #MeToo (Jonah heard preemie 2), and what happened to Gary Johnson with his “What’s Aleppo?” gaffe. I’m sure Gary was asking “What’s a leppo?”. Not “What’s Aleppo.”

    Great guest! I would listen to the podcast she’s going to be doing, but it’s with David French. Definitely a good news/bad news situation.

    Maybe someone would be kind enough to provide a version with French edited out?

    I guess Jonah missed the point that, if your hands are not visible in a photo, it’s impossible to prove his claim that he has his arm/hand a foot away or whatever, from the actual person’s body.

    Haven’t listened yet but sounds as though this is relevant.

    I thought Sarah and Jonah were into entertaining each other, and less about entertaining the listeners.

    But I’d like say something about the passing comment Jonah made about the U.S. Public Health Service, specifically the uniformed members. As a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, I received routine medical care from the USPHS, so I’m somewhat familiar with them.

    They are commissioned officers who are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). They are known mostly for providing care to Native Americans on Indian reservations. Not all members of the USPHS are commissioned officers, they also have civil service civilians working alongside them. The USPHS does not have enlisted members, but in those cases where they work on the few large Coast Guard bases that have full fledged clinics or hospitals, they do have Coast Guard enlisted personnel working for them.

    I have also encountered the other commissioned corps that is not an armed service, and that is the NOAA commission corps. NOAA has some ships, mostly used for oceanic cartography and research that are commanded by those commissioned officers. A lot of those research vessels operate in Alaskan waters, and that’s how I encountered them as a Coastie stationed in Alaska. Like the USPHS, they have no enlisted personnel. The worker bees are civilian civil service.

    Both those services use naval ranks like the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard do (as opposed to the ranks of the Army, Marines, and Air Force).

    Bizarrely, the U.S. Surgeon General, who heads the USPHS, is entitled to wear the uniform of a Rear Admiral. But he’s still called a General. Most Surgeon Generals have not worn their uniform on a regular basis, though one notable exception was C. Everett Koop who served during the Reagan Administration. He was probably the most known U.S. Surgeon General ever.

    The federal government does have other uniformed services, one prominent example being the U.S. Border Patrol. However, like state and local police, they are civilians who are not subject to the UCMJ, and if a member of the Border Patrol doesn’t show up for work, they are not subject to arrest for being AWOL or deserters. Like any civilian job, they can be fired, or disciplined within the normal bounds of loss of pay, etc.

    “Hover Hands.” Sad we’ve come to this, but it is the path of safety.

    Listened to the episode this morning and Sarah was talking about Keanu. That’s the most prominent user of “hover hands” currently out there.

    Father of the Bride.

    I remember at the age of 10 that scene was the first (if not only) time I’ve heard of soon-to-be spouses giving each other wedding presents, which seemed superfluous to me.

    Is the Texas no socks thing an exaggeration/joke? Presumably they wear socks with shoes when they go somewhere.

    Yes, and what Jonah says was that when he is in photos, he does “hover hands” too – or at least he CLAIMS to – but if it’s not visible in the photo, it can’t be used as a defense.

    I wonder how much of this is Jonah and how much of this is mandated by Mr. Asness?
