Hi everybody. I've been tied up for two days so I haven't had much time to post.
Just a few quick notes:
Did anybody see the State of the Union speech on Tuesday night? I have to admit I couldn't stand to watch so I followed along on Air America Radio with Sam Seder...the running commentary and jokes actually made it worthwhile.
News today that Republicans elected a new majority leader...after screwing up the first ballot and taking a "mulligan" on the vote. How incredibly ironic. When the dust settled, they elected Congressman Boehner (pronounced BAH-ner...not like it's spelled hehehehehehehehe) in an upset over Delay's hand-picked successor.
I just got off the phone with my favorite stock broker. I asked, "Should I stick my head in the oven?" He replied, "No, but open the door".
I got an email from the Chairperson of the City's Cable TV committee with new wording in the agreement with FSTV (Free Speech TV) and the airing of Democracy Now!. It's much better in the sense that it spells out that they will only preempt the program if it fails to meet standards for PUBLIC PROGRAMMING. Believe me, it's loose enough where I'm not too worried anymore. This is much better than the language that allowed preemption for any reason at any time with no recourse or appeal.
Feel free to jump in....
Any events happening that we should know about?
