When WTIC-AM morning man Ray Dunaway said Friday morning that “Tom Scott will be here tomorrow,” The Shad thought he had stumbled into Mr. Peabody’s “Way Back Machine” and had been transported back to the early 1990s. Scott, a former state senator, gubernatorial candidate and then talk show host did in fact guest host on ‘TIC Saturday morning and said nothing to dissuade listeners from thinking they were in fact, back in time.

Scott’s brand of Libertarianism can be summed up with the statements, “The government spends too much” (which it does) and “It’s all the state employee unions’ and their bosses’ faults” (which it is not; at least not entirely). It was tedious then and Scott is now so far removed from having any inside connections to the movers and shakers in the state, there is little to be learned from a show he’s hosting. But a trip in Dr. Emmitt Brown’s DeLorean is always nice.
