Things do change on New Year's Day – at least on the radio!

With everyone nursing a hangover on this fine day off, there’s no excuse not to tune in to Left, Right and You between 3 and 4 p.m. on AM1410. Allen Skillicorn and I plan on starting your year off with a bang! We’ll be discussing:  u2
1. Our New Year’s resolutions. Mine is to be nicer to conservatives because it’s not nice to make fun of people who generally aren’t that smart to being with.
2. Cody McCubben, former Kane County Young Republican Chairman and current Newtown, CT school board member will be calling in.
3. Why liberals don’t get it and conservatives are missing the boat in their attempts to address school shootings.
4. Does the impending fiscal cliff deal signal an end to Washington Gridlock?
We hope you will tune in and call in (847-931-1410) with your thoughts!  fact_allen_skillicorn_jeff_ward

  1. Saw your response to me on the other thread, but this is the article that is more appropriate to continue that converastion.
    Thank you for sharing, and understood about the “insider baseball” avoidance you and Allen are trying to do to appeal to a broader audience than the city of Elgin and Kane County. That said, your items Nos. 2 & 3 likely wouldn’t be on your show today if it wasn’t for the Sandy Hook tragedy last month. Looks like an interesting former local connection with Mr. McCubben.
    When it comes to both of those topics, I’ll be listening to see if the topics referencing Sandy Hook and school shootings in general will be holistic. It will be disappointing to hear the talk to be focused solely on guns, without an equally thorough discussion on equally important factors to these tragedies like mental health, and what could have been done to prevent this tragedy, if it was preventable.
    I know the ridiculous idea from the NRA last month has made recent headlines. Regrettably, patterns of behavior of the shooter that someone could have noticed and reported to authorities and the stigma associated with mental health issues like Bi-Polar disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder or any kind of Schizophrenia that can contribute when someone “snaps”, will need to be discussed, too.
    Look forward to today’s shows and future shows.
