It's a peculiar hypothetical, but how illuminating it would be to have a close friend come out of a coma that he'd been in since 2004 ... November 2014 rolls around, and he awakes to a country he barely recognizes. There's a confusingly unpopular but otherwise impressive black man in the White House, more than half the states in the country have legalized gay marriage and for a capper(?) -- two states have already legalized and taxed weed, and Holy Willie Nelson, more states have medical and recreational marijuana in mind and on the midterm ballot. That news almost makes [...]
Thankfully, this country seems to have reached the tipping point on guns. I say thankfully because we can't take another Newtown or Aurora or Tuscon or Portland or Ft. Hood .... Yesterday, on the second anniversary of the Tuscon shootings, former gun rights advocate and shooting victim, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly announced the formation of a new group (PAC) called Americans for Responsible Solutions for the purpose of raising money to fight back against the NRA. Today, VP Joe Biden and his task force begin three days of meetings with different groups from all [...]
OK, so I was wrong with a couple of my predictions. Florida's loathsome Attorney General, Bill McCollum, will not be running for Governor after all. Perhaps it was his decision to take Florida's taxpayers money to spearhead a misguided attempt by a group of AGs to sue the federal government over the health care law.

So click on the player above, and here's what you'll hear: Since today is Earth Day, we started the show with a conversation with Jeff Regen, VP of Online Communications for Defenders of Wildlife. In addition to a campaign to urge people to dedicate a day of service to the earth, they've also spearheaded a drive to make Discovery Inc rethink its terrible idea to air a program on its TLC channel called "Sarah Palin's Alaska." There is a light at the end of the Boehner tunnel. [...]
It's a Tuesday that felt like a Saturday to me. That's only because school's out this week, so I have my kid under foot. And my sister is in town for a photography event called After Dark. So, today, my daughter Alison and I headed down to South Beach where she was a model. My sister promised to turn her into a mermaid and a fairy. 'Nuff said! I'll post the pictures when I get them back. In the meantime, here's one I took with my cell phone while we were waiting... (Yes, there's a reason my sister [...]
