[ale] OT: Circuit Bait-and-Switch



I will look and see if Clark Howard Put it on his web page.
I was driving home from work on Tuesday and he Had a caller.
And if you are familiar with his show he usually doesn't say
who is doing it. But his time he did.  I sat in the parking
lot and got a good laugh actually.

Adrin
p.s.  Best I could do for now

Can you provide some evidence for this claim?   A web page?
Not trying to
debunk, looking for some proof to use in an argument I'm
having with some
friends...
