Charlie's Show Prep #5
Here are some stories Charlie Sykes should talk about on his show today:
- The Milwaukee United Way drive is still $5.4 million short with only a few days to go. No surprise. With charity drives for tsunami and hurricane relief, many of us are tapped out. It also wouldn't hurt if the United Way would give to the Boy Scouts again.
- A spaceport in Sheboygan? Sen. Joe Leibham is working on it. What would they do, launch bratwurst into space? And who knew there was a Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium that was the "Wisconsin arm of NASA?"
- Virginia Governor Mark Warner and probable Presidential candidate sounds like a sane, reasonable Democrat for not wanting "an arbitrary deadline or specific date" to remove troops from Iraq. He went on to say, "This Democrat doesn't think we need to re-fight how we got into (the Iraq war). I think we need to focus more on how to finish it."
- Pete Rose loss his Baseball Hall of Fame eligibility. Vodkapundit has commentary.
- Magazine publisher Mort Zuckerman has declared webloggers the "Fifth Estate." That sounds better than "people in their pajamas."
- Obesity may be preventing drugs administered via the posterior from entering the body. One problem: 50 people in a study doesn't mean much.
UPDATE: The Christmas tree erected on Capitol Hill will be called a "Christmas" tree, not a "holiday" tree. Charlie's listeners will defintely react to this.
