Preparing To Be Warmly Welcomed Back To The Talk Radio Airwaves
Published: August 3, 2008
Recently, I received an e-mail missive from one of the legions of loyal, devoted, satisfied readers of this space who took note of the cancellation of my old radio show on WFLA, 970 AM.
The letter included doubts about my parentage, sexuality, integrity and, of course, patriotism, that might lead a more generous view to conclude that I am read by endlessly curious people.
When I informed the letter writer that I would be returning to the airwaves as of today, he responded with: “I can’t ^%$#&*# believe it!”
But precious reader, isn’t this a testimony that indeed dreams, your dreams, can come true in this great land of ours? Believe, my dear friend, believe.
At the risk of crass self-promotion, I will begin broadcasting this afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m., over WWBA, 1040 AM.
So again the random hearts of social discourse will once more be reunited. I’m counting the moments until I hear from the “Obama is a Muslim” crowd, the Saddam was responsible for 9/11 constituency and the ever popular Bible Thumping “God allowed Hurricane Katrina to destroy New Orleans because he was annoyed with gay people, especially Barney Frank.”
I sometimes wonder whether certain consumers of this column suffer from an attention deficit disorder the envy of an anvil. But I generally don’t have to wonder very long.
You would have thought a column a few days ago on revelations by The Miami Herald that more than 10,000 people with criminal records (including murder!) were able to win state approval to work in the mortgage business, might well have generated a reaction from readers decrying such bureaucratic incompetence.
One reader wanted to blame Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink for the mess, even though Sink wasn’t even in office during most of the period the lax oversight occurred.
Somehow – and I’m still trying to figure out the Gordian Knot of logic at work here – alneri used the mortgage brouhaha to weigh in on the 2000 election nightmare and 9/11, and oh yeah, former Clinton National Security adviser Sandy Berger.
“You are so blinded by your hatred of Bush that you cannot understand that all intelligence has uncertainty,” alneri wrote, which made my head hurt very much. “And all presidents rely on the consensus and by the way, this was a column about mortgage fraud of a circle of advisors.
“Clinton’s major advisor in this area was a man named Sandy Berger. ‘Nuff said.” Yes, thank Gawd.
Here’s the scary part, this guy is probably one of my listeners.
Another column on the ongoing tiff between Barry Cohen, who represented Steve and Marlene Aisenberg, and who has accused Hillsborough Sheriff’s Office attorney Tony Peluso of attempting to frame him as an accessory to murder, sparked this response from drdneast.
“Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t this exactly what Peluso did when he was investigating the Aisenbergs and lied about the content of secret wiretapped record?” drdneast wrote. “Peluso has a history of trying to frame people.”
Uh, drdneast? Let me correct you. You are wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong. And let’s just throw in a general purpose wrong for good measure.
Peluso had nothing to do the original federal charges against the Aisenbergs. He had nothing to do with the botched wiretaps in the case. And there is zero evidence Peluso has a “history” of lying and/or trying to frame people.
Look, I don’t mind you responding to columns but could you please have more familiarity with the subject matter at hand than a bag of snipes?
The column on the Caliente Nudist Resort is still attracting a reaction, especially this from sarababe: “Naturism is a great human equalizer. It’s about accepting yourself and others for who you are and not what you look like. It’s about de-stressing, relaxing, getting back to innocence.
“I feel my batteries being recharged.”
Sarababe? You were doing great until you got to the de-stressing and the batteries part. That is waaaaay too much information for me.
Lastly Confederate Flag toady Bart Siegal …., oh who cares anymore?
