Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America wade through a very somber day on the Three Martini Lunch. They recoil at two horrific weekend mass shootings – one in Texas and another in Ohio – and where we stand as nation. They also evaluate how President Trump is responding and not responding to the heinous killings and how Democrats are pointing the finger of blame squarely at Trump. And, after being away last week, Greg comments on the passing of his father and the legacy his dad leaves behind.

    Greg, my sincerest sympathies on the loss of your dad. Your tribute was awesome and had me in tears. Jim, your words of condolence were also very meaningful. 

    Prayers for your mom and extended family and that you have the confidence of seeing your dad again one day.

    I think many people were touched by your memories. I’ve never heard of a softball game being an emergency either. However, there is an old English expression that a man has had “good innings” if his life has been full and good. Clearly, that fits your father.

    Many condolences in what I know is a difficult time.

    Greg, so sorry for hearing about your father. Sounds like a great man. This is a tough thing to get through. You and your family are in my prayers. Just from the clip you played, I think you inherited his voice.

    Greg, you were blessed with a wonderful father! I liked the little audio clip, because he had that great Yooper accent. Remembering you in my prayers.

    Thanks so much Karen. I’ve still got the accent. Every time I’m there it’s like the switch got flipped!

    I would never guess you were from the U.P. from your accent. Jon Gabriel on the other hand…I was born in Bruce Crossing, all Finnish grandparents. One of my roommates at Michigan State told me her first impression of me was that I was a foreign student.
