FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A man who spent three decades in the Fargo area as a sports broadcaster and talk show host is facing a lawsuit from a man who says he’s owed a share of the profits from Ed Schultz’s daily show on MSNBC.

Broadcast engineer Michael Queen says Schultz owes him $100,000 for the 25 percent stake of the profits Schultz promised him and other expenses racked up while pitching Schultz as a TV pundit to various networks in 2008 and 2009.

James Holm, a producer for “The Ed Show,” tells The Forum newspaper that Schultz has no comment on the lawsuit filed in federal court in the District of Columbia.

Queen acknowledges Schultz never signed an official agreement. But he contends Schultz made promises in e-mails amounting to an enforceable contract.

      I think I’ve heard of the “Ed” show, wasn’t it about some dude and his talking horse?

          When the currency collapses due to the deficit spending inaugurated by your God Ronald Reagan, just filling your pie hole with government cheese will be all you want in life. Either that or figuring out which side to join in the second civil war. Funny, huh? BTW, farmers can’t grow crops when no fuel is available and no one can pay them anything, because the currency is worthless.
