  • Stephen offers some sound advice on the Iraqi civil war.

    The show opens with a teaser of content from the show, which involves everything from Monopoly's anniversary to an Iraqi civil war.

    Stephen starts off the show by bringing up the subject of Sir Benjamin Slade, who is looking for an heir for his estate. Stephen makes his plea one more time, just like in last night's show. It seems there's an actual blood relative in North Carolina, but Stephen doesn't think he's a good choice.

    Moving on, Stephen turns his attention to the Enron trial in Texas. Stephen offers some silly insight into the testimony of the witnesses. He doesn't think the government has much of a case against the people in Enron.

    With Monopoly's anniversary approaching, it makes for a great edition of "The Word." Stephen thinks the board game, "monopoly" has taught our kids valuable things about economics. Oddly enough, an old monopoly is back in the news, AT&T, which was broken up a few decades ago by the government. It seems the company is being built up again, looking very much like it did several years ago, which scares some people. Stephen, on the other hand, thinks we can trust monopolies.

    Back from commercial, Stephen introduces a segment called "Stephen's Sound Advice," which touches on the civil war in Iraq. Stephen thinks it's a good idea to color code your uniforms. Also, take lots of photos for future re-enactments, and have at least eight popular generals for chess sets. Also, be sure to ask your wife/girlfriend to write you love letters. Stephen then tells the Iraq President to ignore the desire to go to the theatre, or you could get shot like President Lincoln.

    Back from commercial, Stephen welcomes tonight's guest, James Webb. Mr. Webb, a war veteran, is running for U.S. Senator. They talk about Mr. Webb's past as well as a lot of politics.

    Back from commercial, Stephen ends the show by mentioning you could purchase an American flag which actually flew outside of the studio, and he's even wrapped the flag around himself, but he did wear boxers.

    Tonight's episode was slightly below average compared to the rest of the episodes of the series. My favorite segment was obviously the segment where Stephen offered his advice on the Iraqi civil war.
