I’ve listened to evening talk radio more lately than I have before. It’s been more difficult to listen to the day time hosts this past week. One thing, though, is that it is very entertaining. I love to listen to the wingnuts argue with each other. And here in Houston, there are plenty of Ron Paul types to mix things up even more. I’ve always known why liberals never worked on talk radio. The format is the antithesis of what a liberal would really get into. It’s also fairly marginalized — largely an older demographic, with others like me, who listen because we haven’t moved to the next technology (I’m waiting for the next jump, for the same reason that I push my little Chevy S10 everyday). I’m certain that wingnut talk radio will be phased out, by technology — not their ideas or stances. It’s another facet of humor to listen to Hannity and Limbaugh rail about whether talk radio is dead/useless/ineffectual. They are already toast.
Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal is still in hot water. I don’t know, but I think that the mess in the DA’s office is slowing down the procecution of cases, including Joe Horn’s. Jared Woodfill and that ninny running for county judge are claiming they ran him out of office, but Rosenthal is still there. (BTW Rosenthal is a Republican.)
Charles Kuffnerhas been following the possibility of down ticket voting this fall and which candidate helps or hurts. At this point, I figure Harris County will go Dem. The louder Republicans shout that they cleanse their own, the more authoritarian they sound, and when it doesn’t actually happen (Rosenthal, Craig) the more ineffectual they appear. In a year when the GOP is blowing up, I don’t see any reason for anyone to vote them back in, no matter how many times John Cornyn gets on the radio.
On the puppy front, it looks like I will have them for a bit longer. SNAP will only sterilize 3 month old pups. (It has to do with rabies shots.) I can’t really take them to an adoption day until they are fixed and have their rabies shots either. I got in touch with the person at friends of Barc and I may be able to get the pups in to the last day they have the space in Highland Village.
Work is very busy and quite tedious. My classes are pretty good. I gave a test today and the cheaters knew that they were cheating and were embarrassed. I guess telling them that I knew they were cheating on the last test and writing NO TALKING!!!!! on the board worked, mostly.
