Shortly after posting this story on facebook, Savannah Alderman Tony Thomas called us to talk about it. It was our last break of the show, so we had limited time with Tony. It seems, though, like Tony was able to get out what he wanted to say.
The lead-in, which got clipped before recording, was Bill making a comment/joke about Tony not hanging up on us. That's what they're laughing about.
PS: Tony says the photos (seen below) which have caused such an uproar, were taken at a parade AFTER-PARTY with the NYC firefighters, not before the parade.
Plus, Savannah Mayor Eddie DeLoach held a press conference on Tuesday (3/21) to discuss the situation.
