    Never really cared for him. Too loud in the mornings for my taste and
    I have long been past the point where anyone getting arrested surprises me. I'm guessing there won't be a statement, he will be mentioned again when he cops a deal and takes his sentence.

    All to cover a gambling debt amassing nearly a million dollars to one individual. Such an idiot. He also has five kids I believe, which is sad because he won't be able to afford their (I'm sure) lavish lifestyle. Boomer must be pissssed.

    Wow, would never have seen that coming.

    Kind of annoyed because Boomer and Carton was one of the few shows left that I could stomach if I got caught in drive time. Hoping Boomer finds a new partner and the FAN tries the combo.

    Is anyone really surprised that Carton is a degenerate gambler? Also who uses email to set up a Ponzi scheme? What a moron!

    He was unlistenable. Is that even a word? Well, I am sorry for his kids. No kid deserves such a bad break in life.

    They were the num 1 morning show on the radio...I've been a listener for years and this comes as very surprising to me.Theres got to be more to this story...he has no prior criminal history.If true it's sad he would throw away a 300k a year job because of gambling debts.

    300K a year? Sounds low for such a gig, no? I really couldn't listen to him. His weird voice, his idiotic comments would make me change the channel. Finally I got satellite radio and I listen to other sports channels. Mostly fantasy by the way.

    They didn't like the Al Qaeda
    Camp. Will send them to Isis camp next year.
