Read the Bill!

There is a bill in the House of Representatives that, if passed, would mandate a 72-hour period for everyone (citizens and representatives) to read a bill before it can be voted on in Congress. Gee, what a FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC idea!







The "Read the Bill" bill is HR 554. Visit the Sunlight Foundation's ReadTheBill.org website. Read the bill and sign the petition to support it.

Let's put a little sanity back into the process of government, again, shall we?

What a wonderful way to spend a Friday night! After an hour or so wandering through some of the exhibits at the Frazier Historical Arms Museum, I then got to spend three hours with Hugh Hewitt and 599 other fans of his show. I absolutely MUST say that not only was Hugh wonderful and the live show very entertaining, but his fans are absolutely the nicest people! I've seen other radio talk shows done live and mingled with fans of those shows. Hugh Hewitt's fans are the nicest, most down to earth, friendly people I've ever met. It's quite a credit to Hugh that he draws such a fan base.

If you haven't been to the Frazier Historical Arms Museum here in Louisville, it's a must-see. The museum shows an amazing artistry with the exhibits and places them in the context of the times in a very entertaining and educational way. Of co…
