Mid-Life Ramblings; Sanity Optional

I try not to get too political on this blog, although I've slipped a couple of times. But I'm now thinking that this is my blog and therefore my place to speak my mind and politics is on my mind quite often. Now that doesn't mean I'm going to turn this into a political blog but it does mean that I'm not going to hold back when I have something political to say. [vbg]

What has me giddy with glee today is that Baton Rouge, state capitol of a RED state now has a progressive talk radio station, which carries Air America Radio! I've tried to listen online before but it's tough when there are other sounds going on my machine and it all just drives me nuts. But now I can set my handy dandy radio to 1380 AM and I can hear the Al Franken Show and Ed Schultz.

Can you tell that I'm in heaven? This station is actually owned by Clear Channel so I guess I have to quit calling them evil. [vbg] I'm not sure why we're not able to hear the Majority Report hosted by Janeane Garofalo and Sam Seder. Maybe it's because they sign off at 7 pm. I'm going to be making some phone calls very soon, I can see that coming.

I gotta tell y'all that being able to listen to other progressives during the day while I am the only progressive in a sea of conservatives is so very refreshing. I've had a big ol' grin all day long.

    That's so cool! St. Louis is a blue city, just across the river from a blue state, and we still don't have Air America. I used to listen online, but it's too hard with Queen Loud running around all day. She got a huge dose of AA when she was a newborn, though, and I'd listen all day, every day.

    When she grows up to be a Republican, I'll blame all those hours of Al Franken and Marc Maron.

    Excellent! I listen online when I can but the time difference screws me up a lot and I end up missing Al Frankin.

    Yet another reason to be bitter in St. Louis. A bitch may have to take a road trip, grab some gumbo and listen to progressive radio! I do get to catch Al Franken on the dish, though...
