Brave Joe Biden ran away, Bravely ran away, away. When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled. Yes, brave Joe Biden turned about And gallantly, he chickened out. Bravely taking to his feet, He beat a very brave retreat, Bravest of the brave, Joe Biden.
I'm just wondering when you are going to address all of the anti-vax info that people like Howie and Grace spew out everyday? I think it's reaching the point now where you might want to address it. At what point does it become the responsibility of the broadcaster to say something? How many double lung transplants does it take? MTV used to have to run a disclaimer before the stunt show Jackass so people wouldn't get hurt and sue. If you had folks on the air telling people to commit su***de everyday I'm sure the FCC might have a problem with that but that's essentially what's happening. Pro life death cult.....who knew?

For those students who are working online: It's helpful to have a teacher on the other side of the screen while you're trying to figure out the math, the science, the historical significance, etc. while you're learning a new concept.
Good afternoon-am hoping you can provide me with information regarding an apparent change in your weekend format for broadcasting-I was so disappointed on Saturday and Sunday not to have any local programming-now more than ever we need to be together in a community and your radio weekend shows always provided that before. What's happening?
