My wife wisely suggested I take out the tape over mouth vent bit from my programs for a while. (Due the the widely broadcast and follow up to the trial.) Has anyone else decided to take out the bit. If not has your audience given you any different responses to the bit, other than positive?

Colin - it was a murder case involving a child. The skeleton was found with duct tape over the mouth. The media sensationalized the trial.

I never even linked the two and see no real connection. The TOM uses thin masking tape - not duct tape. As long as you are entertaining the crowd and not mentioning the case, I doubt anyone will say anything. I'm not currently using a tape routine, but if I did, I'd continue. Honestly, I can't see it being that big an issue.

News will forgotten, take a break maybe a good idea.

BTW I finally buy the right from Uncle Bill, giving him his pension fund. Got it from Lee at the ConVENTion and got some advice from Uncle Bill too.

I wouldn't worry about it. Unless you mention the case, I doubt very many will make the connection. Those that DO make the connection are likely to be offended by every third thing you say anyways.

Like Tom, the connection never even crossed my mind. Doubt it would cross audience members' minds either.

I still have chosen not to use it lately. This is mainly due to the fact that I use duct tape.

Now where it that duck?

If you lived around Orlando or Tampa, it might be an issue, but even here, just a couple hours away from the crime and trial locations, people are starting to move on from mentioning poor little Caylee in daily conversation. The public has a short memory. Sadly, the focus now is on her horrific mother.
