LRY2That’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 Liberal Curmudgeon, on WRMN AM1410. Larry and I can’t wait!

This is the May 7, 2015 edition of Left, Right and You!

And Larry and I can’t thank Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg for coming on the show and making it one of the best Left, Right and Yous yet!

NeilSteinbergWhile we certainly talked about the late Cardinal George and incoming Cardinal Blase Cupich, we covered so much more than that you will simply have to listen.

On Monday! The Smiling Conservative and I are gonna cover a number of fermenting local topics, including, but not limited too, the ongoing Governor Rauner resolution kerfuffle, my lovely Geneva neighbors poisoning neighborhood pets instead of coyotes, and the fact that KC Sheriff Don Kramer finally met with some County Board members. Until then…

Please get ready for Left, Right and You!

Today! Larry and I get to play host to one of our favorite guests, Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberg.

steinberg2Neil has been pondering the passing of Cardinal Francis George as well as incoming Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich quite a bit of late, so we’re looking forward to getting his insights on both men. We’ll also discuss how he’s engaged some of his more zealous readers in some interesting conversations.

There aren’t many absolutes in this life, but I can tell you with certainty that Neil Steinberg is never dull!

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 Liberal Curmudgeon, on WRMN AM1410. You really don’t wanna miss this one!

This is the May 4, 2015 edition of Left, Right and You!

Not only did the Smiling Conservative and I analyze the political fallout from Governor Rauner’s “Turnaround Illinois” resolution, but we agreed that it certainly wasn’t helping his budgetary cause. We also agreed that we want to see the Governor succeed in his reform efforts.

Liberals and conservatives don’t have to be at each others throats to make a point!

And Larry and I want to thank Pete for calling in with his typically cogent comments. Pete’s right! The Governor needs to get something done before the end of May or he’s lookin’ at the veto session.

Jeff and Larry2On Thursday’s show we’ll have Sun-Times columnist extraordinaire Neil Steinberg. Neil has been devoting a lot of column space to the late Cardinal Francis and incoming Cardinal Blase Cupich. We can’t wait to hear his thoughts on this transition. Until then!

Left, Right and You makes Mondays better!

Today! The esteemed Smiling Conservative and I will tackle the topic of Governor Rauner’s “Turnaround Illinois” resolution. Despite a massive push by his people, not many Illinois counties or municipalities are signing on.

Rauner2The question is, in his quest to emulate Scott Walker, did the Governor bite off a little more of Illinois than he could chew? (Hint! The curmudgeonly liberal believes he did.) We’re lookin’ for your thoughts on this interesting subject as well at 847-931-1410.

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 the Liberal Curmudgeon, Jeff Ward, on WRMN AM1410. We certainly hope you tune in!
