In our first hour today, we talked about the big stories of the day: the media’s tipoff to al Qaeda of yet another anti-terror program, the arrest of seven would-be Jihadis in Florida, and the crashing and burning of Democrat anti-war ambitions in the Senate. It was a lively hour, made even more interesting by technical problems that apparently resulted from a lightning strike last night. I edited out of the podcast a pretty funny minute or two in which radio listeners could hear callers, but we couldn’t. But on the whole, the tone was serious and the commentary sharp.
In a couple of days, I’ll podcast our less time-sensitive second hour, in which we awarded a Lifetime Achievement Gatekeeper award to a certain recently-retired anchorman, and the highly-prized Loon of the Week to a previously under-appreciated warbler.
