Thanks so much for choosing Mike Papantonio to host this week's shows.
Mike has developed a style that employs an opening monologue -- influenced perhaps by his background as a trial lawyer -- that sets the tone for the show. It works very well and elevates the discussion. Because I deal mainly with psychological and health-related issues, I appreciate that these figure prominently in the topics that he chooses to highlight.
I do still mourn the demise of Ron Reagan's syndicated AirAmerica program. (Perhaps because his wife is a therapist, he rivals Mike in terms of attention to psychological issues.)
Thom must've met Ron during their recent panel discussion, so perhaps Ron will be offered the opportunity to fill in occasionally over the coming year. (Ideally, I'd like to have both Mike and Ron available on radio everyday.)
Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
