YAHOO...IT'S THE WEEKEND!!!
WE HAD A JAMMED SWITCHBOARD TODAY with most callers commenting on Ohio Senator Rob Portman's announcement that he is now PRO-GAY MARRIAGE. His 22 year old son told him he was gay two years ago, and the Republican senator decided he needed to change his opinion on that issue. As a result there were many issues we didn't get to. Sooo......
THE VENEZUELAN GOVERNMENT HAS DECIDED to set up a formal inquiry as to who and how Hugo Chavez was poisoned by enemies abroad. This ought to be fun. Can't wait for the final report!
WE MENTIONED A WHILE BACK THAT COSCO'S president spoke out in favor of increasing the minimum wage. This week Costco announced a profit of $537 million dollars, and that's just in the last quarter. Costco president Craig Jelinek says that raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour would not be a bad thing. He also added that the better the wage, the better the worker...and it minimizes turnover.
McDONALDS IS CREATING A NEW EGG McMUFFIN! It's a yolk free sandwich on a whole grain muffin. The "Egg White Delight" will be available on April 22. The calorie count will drop from 300 to 250. I've always loved the sandwich, but rarely have one because of health reasons. This could change all that!
THE RAPE TRIAL INVOLVING TWO FOOTBALL players in Steubenville has begun. This trial is getting national attention and no matter how it comes out, what happens AFTER the trial will be very interesting. When you think of high school football in Steubenville, just look at Massillon. The folks down there are rabid about the BIG RED.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE ST. Patricks day this weekend, please be very careful when driving...I need every listener I can get.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND JOIN ME Monday morning at 9am on 640 WHLO. Jim
