No man is good enough to govern another man without the other's consent - Abraham Lincoln

[COMMENT]One of the most outrageous stories I have ever heard in my life is this barricading the World War II Monument in Washington, and keeping Veterans from walking freely in it. I heard there was a special trip with hundreds of Veterans and they arrived to find it barricaded supposedly because of the government shut down. An outdoor monument with no turnstiles, open to the public day and night, I don't get it. Not even any security except for the Capitol Police. Who did this? I believe it was the president.

To make it even more outrageous and petty look at this short piece by Mona Charen at National Review:

Scenic Overlooks not Overlooked by Obamaites

Driving down the George Washington Parkway outside Washington, D.C. today, I noticed that the two scenic overlooks that offer drivers the chance to admire the beauty of the Potomac River below are closed for the government shutdown. These overlooks are just cut-outs from the highway, providing a few parking spaces. That’s it. No little National Park Service kiosk. Nothing. It’s just a parking area that holds maybe 6 cars at a time.

To close them required someone to come and put up barricades, thus costing taxpayers money.

Is there anyone in the Obama administration with common sense? Do they not see how petty and over-reaching this makes them look?

This was meant to really piss people off and I think it's soo unforgivable. I don't think Obama has any idea how deep this hurts people and they will not soon forget, I know I won't.

'Breaking Bad' Writers: 'This Is It; There's No More'

Eric Von Haessler no longer on 'The Regular Guys' on Rock 100.5 in Atlanta. These guys started at 97.1 The FM Talk Station. Loved that noon time show.


Talk Show host Mike Gallagher just out of surgery for hip replacement.
Mike posts this on his facbook page. I made it!! Kind of drugged up but wanted to let you know I am doing great. A little sore but nothing bad. Sleeping off and on a lot. Tried to walk earlier with the nurses but got nauseous and weak so we'll hit it first thing in the AM. Doc said the surgery went perfectly! Back to sleep now...but wanted to let u know I love you all!

Casey Kasem's family locked in bitter feud
Members of legendary radio personality Casey Kasem's family are locked in a bitter feud with each other as the DJ battles Parkinson's disease, according to a U.S. report.

Kasem's wife Jean has reportedly blocked his three children from visiting their ailing father, according to, and Kerri, Julie and Mike Kasem have not been able to contact him for three months.

On Tuesday, Kasem's three children, along with friends and co-workers, protested the alleged lock-out during a camp-out in front of his house.

Kasem's brother has also joined the protest and tells that Jean has had a strained relationship with her stepkids for years - and that he hasn't spoken to Jean since his brother married her three decades ago.

From NPR's The Story
Growing Up In The White House
Luci Baines Johnson was a teenager in 1963 when President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed and her father, Lyndon Johnson, was thrust into the presidency. That year, the family moved into the White House, and Luci was fully aware of the tragic reason for their move. In this conversation with host Dick Gordon, she talks about the day she became the first daughter.

The Models Behind Rockwell’s Portraits
When the illustrator Norman Rockwell moved to a small city in Vermont in 1939, he began hiring his neighbors to pose for what would become the portraits that embodied Americana: A family eating supper, a man speaking at a town hall meeting, or a boy scout steering a ship.

Like many others in Alrington, Vt., Buddy Edgerton became the subject of many of Rockwell’s paintings, which were used as calendars, stamps or covers for the Saturday Evening Post. Edgerton tells host Dick Gordon about posing as a boy scout and getting paid $5 and about getting to know Rockwell, his wife Mary and their three sons.

[THUMBS WAY DOWN]KRLA interrupted [Hugh Hewitt's] Show Thursday to run a hockey game. Do the people that listen to Hugh Hewitt want to hear a hockey instead of his show, I think not. I can't tell you how much I do not like this. The radio station, no doubt does this for the money, listeners are secondary. Not one thing on the website that talks about running hockey games. And Hugh never said a thing.
