man on radio: now for our first caller. you're on the air, sir. caller: i want to complain about that new factory they put up over on central avenue. now, that's an ugly building-- and an eyesore. and among other things, it's going to create parking problems and traffic jams. and--and for crying out loud, haven't we got enough smog already? aw, did you hear that? oh, yeah, yeah. and now for some music. oh, mont, don't you care in your community? of course i care what's happening in the community. more specifically, the block. narrowing it down, this house. pinpointing it, this sofa. and hitting it on the head, this cushion. oh, lamont, that factory is right here in this neighborhood. as a matter of fact, it's right down the street on this very block. yeah, i know all about that factory, denise.
hing, and this is the time and the place. oh, lamont, you're a shallow, uninvolved person. no, i'm not. look, if i wanted to, i could call that station and tell them a few things-- if i wanted to. well, so, go right ahead. go on. tell them right now. oh, there's no way in the world you're going to get me to call up that radio station and talk to them people and make a fool out of myself. lamont... there ain't no way you going to get me to do that. i would only give myself totally to a man that gets involved-- really involved. what's the number of that station? 555-3211. you want involvement? i'll give you involvement. some involvement. 3211. [sighs] uh, hello. is this the talkback show?
am i on the air? good. well, i just want to say-- i want to make a comment about that guy that called about the factory. now, that factory might be an ugly building and an eyesore and everything, but it takes millions of people off unemployment and welfare and gives them steady jobs. in fact... i would do all that i could to encourage more trade in the area... to make jobs available for people that want to work and give them steady employment and pride and dignity, so they can hold their heads up high. it's one thing to have trouble breathing, and it's another thing to have trouble eating.
