Countdown to Antarctica

Things are going to be sort of different on Hometown Radio for the next couple weeks. Tom will be away all this week, enjoying a special family reunion up north to celebrate his 75th birthday. I’ll be working with Carson Britz — a heck of a nice young man — and we’ll do live shows through Thursday. On Friday, there will be a “Best of” playing.

Tom is back on the 22nd, but I’m gone until February 5th, off on my adventure to South America and Antarctica. We’ll have a series of guest hosts in to cover, including SLO police chief Deb Linden, Dr. Scott Robertson, Betsey Nash, Pastor Doug and, yes, Santa Maria Bill. You’ll hear a diversity of guests and topics covered in my absence.

To be honest, I’m not sure what will happen with this blog while I’m away. I’m assuming Internet access on board the ship, so I’ll continue to post, if possible. Or I may ask King Harris to sit in as Head Blogger for a few sessions. Either way, I want to keep our dialogue going, but don’t panic if new posts aren’t as frequent.

Meanwhile, those of you into “date nights” will want to listen Tuesday at 5:05 when I interview pop singer Melissa Manchester. We’ll be giving away some pairs of free tickets to her Clark Center concert next Saturday. On Monday, historian Roger Hall talks about California history and Henry Edward Huntington. On Wednesday, Pat Renshaw and Angie King talk about women’s rights in 2007 and Si Tetenberg needs help in putting together CARE packages for the troops. On Thursday, we’ll wade into the Charter TV public access mess and find out if anyone is really watching.

Stay warm out there. This weather is starting to remind me of the Midwest. Brrrrrr.

    Dear Tribune,

    Every successful business has a business plan and I have to wonder what yours is when there are over 11,000 more registered Republicans in SLO County than Democrats yet you continue to be an organ for the Democrat Party.

    At every turn, you take a pot shot or criticize our president, your editorial cartoons are all slanted against George Bush. Over and over there are letters saying that the president lied but the facts are ignored when it comes to Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Madelyn Albright and the rest of the Democrats all saying back in 1998 that Iraq had WMD’s and that we need to do something about it.

    Even though in the paper today you say that you are adjusting your line up of columnists you will still carry Paul Krugman and Maurine Dowd neither of which has an agenda that is what is best for the country but their agenda is to do anything to tear down George Bush, not once do you read that they have a constructive idea on how to improve anything but instead just elect socialists. I could scream!

    The big story today was global warming. If you will Google “global warming junk science” you will find over 900,000 articles saying that there is no proof that man is causing global warming. I defy you to find a scientist that can prove that man has the ability to cause a change in our climate. Yes, the earth is a little warmer, about one degree in the past hundred years but it is a natural occurrence due to the sun burning hotter and cooler at different times and this is proven by real scientists. You are just trying to scare people so they will vote for a Democrat since you refuse to acknowledge the other point of view.

    Seriously, Dave, don’t worry about this blog. You are going to the bottom of the planet and you shouldn’t concern yourself with all us dopey pinheads who waste time on this blog. I suggest, if you are worried about us not having anything to argue about, just put up five or six topics on the blog and let us go at it. Might I suggest the topics: I say go with Iraq is Unwinnable, Republicans are Evil Incarnate, Nancy Pelosi became the best Speaker the United States ever had in the first 100 hours and why,The New Times is now a worthless rag, Measure J two months later, The Los Osos Sewer Debacle, Heathcare for Illegal Immigrants: Schwarzennegger the Liberal? Of course this is your blog, so post whatever you want. Please post a travelogue of your adventures so we can live vicariously through you. But by all means, relax and enjoy yourself and please don’t worry about this blog; You’ve earned that.
