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.)
There is this whole mythology that Donald Trump came to power because 53% of white women voted for him, because 66% of white working men who didn't have a college degree voted for him.That may be, but those are not his constituents. Those are his suckers. Those are his rubes.
