I took a couple days off from the blog. The news literally overwhelms me occasionally. Last week was not good for national or our local news. But it's an all new week with a debate on Wednesday. I can't wait for that. I heard on KABC that Doug McIntyre and T-Rae and Jumping Johnny Phillips will be doing post debate coverage, that's at night. I wonder if that means they take Thursday off. Doug and T-Rae probably take the day off and John comes in blurry eyed, not sure.
This morning listening to Geraldo in between commercials. He has Fox News business guy Stewart Varney on the show. This is a smart dude. At 36 after the hour Geraldo comes back on the air with Stewart and listens to him talk about how bad the economy is and such things and then exactly 5 minutes into it he says thank you and goodbye and goes to calls! I couldn't believe it. Why have them on if you don't like them Jerry? It's one of the worst talk shows on the air. Geraldo is such a lefty it's scary.

Danny Bonaduce was bit on his face by some woman. Tim Conway Jr. was talking about this and played audio of Danny describing the pain he felt. Danny worked at the old 97.1 The FM Talk station back in the day. And yes was Danny Partridge in the old 70's TV show that I saw every episode of multiple times and owned all the records the fake band put out. If you click on the link to the story you will see a photo of his cheek, wow. http://blog.seattlepi.com/thebigblog/2012/10/01/photo-fan-bites-danny-bonaduces-face/
Mark Levin went ballistic talking about the fact that new things have been learned about the Fast and Furious story and nobody in American media will cover it. Univision did a story about 2 dozen very young people at a party somewhere in Mexico that were murdered with guns from the US and were ID'd as being from the Fast and Furious program. http://pjmedia.com/blog/univision-breaks-new-details-of-obama-admins-fast-and-furious-cover-up/
Disclaimer again, I know Alec Baldwin has a bad rep but man is his radio show on NPR good. The guy knows what he's doing. Posted right now are two shows that I have not heard yet, one is with George Will. And the other is a special show. In a series of one-hour, on-air specials, Alec Baldwin gives the listener unique entrée into the lives of artists, policy makers and performers. Baldwin sidesteps the predictable by taking listeners inside the dressing rooms, apartments, and offices of people such as comedian Chris Rock and Oscar winner Michael Douglas. This is a new idea he has had, normally it would be a studio interview. Can't wait to check that out. http://www.wnyc.org/shows/heresthething/
I saved the best for last. I heard this driving back to Anaheim from the Valley tonight. Another NPR show, Fresh Air with Terry Gross and Neil Young, yea that Neil Young. I don't think I have ever heard him interviewed. I'm not a big fan. But this guy has been around forever and I respect his longevity. I think he puts a lot of heart into his music. I always thought he was really gutsy making a very successful career with that voice. I also didn't know he was a Canadian. This interview is really special. Not knowing anything about him really and hearing him talk instead of sing was really interesting. The guy is really really bright. He has a new Memoir called "Waging Heavy Peace". If you love American culture you must hear this great interview. http://www.npr.org/2012/10/01/162082545/in-memoir-neil-young-wages-heavy-peace
