Special guest host on radio show today
By Perry Willis
Today's Downsizer Dispatch . . . Subject: Today's radio show with special guest host Jim Babka is traveling on Downsize DC business. When last heard from he had survived a difficult trek through the Donner Pass, and was searching for decent food by the side of the road. Or on the road. Or something like that. As a result, Jim's radio show will feature a special guest host today . . . Ed Brayton Superstar! (cue Andrew Lloyd Webber fanfare) Ed is a popular blogger for Seed magazine's Science Blogs. Jim and I read him daily. Ed is a good friend, a member of the "Read the Bills" coalition, and a frequent adviser to Downsize DC on a number of issues. Ed's blog features some of the best analysis on Constitutional issues you'll find anywhere. He's also a former stand-up comic, a cooker of BBQ and other fine foods, an informed commenter on scientific and cultural issues, and an avid poker player. Thus . . . Among his topics today will be the "Alice in Wonderland" federal war against online gambling, plus, anything else that strikes his wide ranging mind. He may even have a famous poker playing guest, if Lady Luck permits. Here's the point. Ed Brayton is a smart guy, and we could all stand to have a few more smart people in our lives, informing us and challenging our thinking. So please tune in to hear him today, and call him or write him with questions and comments. I think you'll be glad you made his acquaintance. In addition to calling Ed at 1-800-259-9231, you can email him at CALL at DOWNSIZEDC dot ORG (we write that out "long-hand" to stop spam harvesters from snagging this address). The show airs at 4:06 PM Eastern (3:06 PM Central, 2:06 PM Mountain, and 1:06 PM Pacific). It's on a few stations, but the best way I can recommend listening is on the web. As for Jim, we'll send out a search party if we don't hear from him again soon. Have a happy Sunday. Perry Willis Communications Director, Inc.
