    They found Ron?

    He’s alive?

    What are the odds of him staying awake throughout the interview?

    Perhaps he will explain how he came to owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes.

    Make sure somebody is present to guide Ron to the studio and the men’s room.

    Ron would have been good for a Saturday Night Live skit or two if he had a national profile.
