Of course, Larry and I want to thank Author and journalist Lauren Lipton for coming on the show and describing how she struck a “Norma Rae” blow for journalists and writers everywhere! I bet the folks at the Huffington Post are still reeling from the onslaught! But why listen to me when you can listen to the show for youself:
You can also find Lauren and her work right here.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, we also discussed the ongoing Kane County Coroner follies – he made the Tribune today – and the fact that Michael Madigan seems to have politically stumbled. Say it ain’t so Mike!
We’re talking Monday off so you’ll have to wait until next Thursday for you Left, Right and You fix. Until then…
And it’s gonna be a real treat because Lauren will be discussing her “Norma Rae” moment in which she took on the nefarious Huffington Post and struck a blow for journalists and writers everywhere! We’ll also get her thoughts on whether local journalism has any chance of survival whatsoever.
Then, just when you thought he couldn’t get any sillier, Kane County Coroner Rob Russell is going to sue the very County for which he works. Perhaps he should write a book called, “How Not to Win Friends and Fail to Influence People.”
And Speaker Madigan, the man who never makes a political misstep, just attempted to override a gubernatorial veto without having the votes! Between the Cubs winning and this I’m really starting to believe in parallel universes.
That’s Left, Right and You, Mondays from 9 to 10 a.m. and Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. with the Smiling Conservative, Larry Jones, and me, the Curmudgeonly Liberal, on WRMN AM1410. Don’t miss it!
If you want insights into the local political process, just listen…
…because Kurt and I covered it all:
- Snakes in Geneva (besides me)
- The Gasthaus and their soon to be vanishing liquor license
- What ever happened to second chances?
- Joe McMahon will run for KC State’s Attorney at least one more time
- And just to keep things interesting, a local protest on the Iran nuclear deal
Thursday! Author and journalist Lauren Lipton will join the Smiling Conservative and me to talk about how she delivered the kind of blow to the Huffington Post that resounded throughout journalistic hallways everywhere. Until then…
Of course the Smiling Conservative and I want to thank 22nd State Senate District candidate Christina Castro for coming in and talking with us. Though it’s not setting the bar too high, she’ll certainly be a vast improvement over Mike Noland.
We also utterly debunked the insipid peripheral players’ notion of anything untoward occurring as a result of a Kane County Prosecutor’s DUI arrest and we fervently hope that Legislative Aid Rich Jacobs and Judge John Dalton are smart enough to get the bleepin’ RV out of their Elgin driveway.
Hope does spring eternal!
On Monday, Kurt Kojzarek and I will cover a number of things including, but not limited to, Elgin’s Gasthaus Zur Linde potentially losing their liquor license. I may even read my Chicago Cubs haiku! Until then…
All on today’s Left, Right and You!
Current Kane County Board member and Elgin 22nd District State Senate candidate will drop by to discuss her run with the Smiling Conservative and myself. And we can’t wait! (She’d certainly be an improvement over Mike Noland.)
And speaking of the silly Senator Noland, his legislative aide, Rich Jacobs, and husband Judge John Dalton, we’re just ticketed for having an RV in their Elgin driveway. Apparently working for a state senator and wearing the black robe means never having to say you’re sorry.
That’s Left, Right and You, Mondays from 9 to 10 a.m. and Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. with the Smiling Conservative, Larry Jones, and me, the Curmudgeonly Liberal, on WRMN AM1410. Don’t miss this one folks!
And Kurt and I covered it all! So if you want to avail yourself of kind of political insights that only come from Left, Right and You, you’re in luck:
From Elgin races to the Presidential festivities, we dotted the “i’s” and crossed the “t’s.” Kurt and I also want to thank Elinor and Joan for calling in with some cogent points.
The smiling Conservative will be back Thursday as we have a conversation with current Kane County Board Member and 22nd District State Senate candidate Cristina Castro. Until then…
And, as you can see by the photo of my newest t-shirt, it was heavy metal day on Left, Right and You!
But all of our headbanging didn’t stop us from covering every single topic we set out to cover! From U-46 to rescuing sparrows to Batavia electric lawsuits to Cristina Castro, we set the record straight! And speaking of Cristina Castro, the 22nd District State Senate candidate will be joining us next Thursday.
Meanwhile Kurt Kojzarek will fill in on Monday. Until then…
