FRIDAY'S HUM ( 5-12-06 )

WHAT? NO VETO?
Seven Days with funny political baseball cartoon on page 9a. Jimmy (De-veto) Douglas up to bat with VETO written on bat. Pitcher Welch and catcher Symington having mound conference with Gaye saying, "What matters is not what he had for breakfast, but what can you throw that he won't crush." Trouble is, expected veto didn't happen, making cartoon un-prophetic. But the piece itself is clever and makes us realize what an exiguity there is regarding good local pol cartooning.

SOX - YANKS
Boys from Beantown take 3rd game of series in 4 hour tilt, coming from behind.
* Yanks Cairo out of his league. Yanks wish for Gold Glove first sacker.
* Pesky Loretta can beat you in a hundred different ways.
* Matsui with fractured wrist; needs surgery. Tough break for a guy who plays every game.

RADIO EQUALIZER RIDES AIR AMERICA
Blistering report from Equalizer's Brian Maloney. Read it here.

UP IN A PUFF OF SMOKE
Cigarette tax increases 60 cents on July1. People stopping at the Quik Mart for gas and smokes better whip out that hundred dollar bill. Non-smokers who ride bikes are laughing all the way to the bank.

FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
Can't get your baby to sleep. Put the papoose in the car and idle up to the Essex Junction Five Corners Light. The sweet, gentle hum of the engine will have the baby sleeping like a, well, baby. And the light takes so long to change, the cute little bugger will sleep for hours, giving Mom or Dad some snooze time, too.

Take Brian Maloney's comments with a grain of salt people! He provides no context about those results, how it was conducted, the methodology, etc. Not to mention that their are over 5-6,000 right-wing and Christian radio affiliates all over the U.S., so obviously that will impact on AA's listenership.

The other thing is a lot of people out there STILL don't know that AA exists. Call it growing pains or something but Maloney's a right-wing shill and is looking to bash something he doesn't like to begin with!

Air America's doing just fine and those ratings don't show the success they're having.
