What do Glenn Beck, Kathie Black, the federal government, and Kimberly Massengill all have in common?

Last week I requested and was granted a leave of absence from WPKN. Program Director Rod Richardson was a mensch about it, and assured me my time slot would be held until my return. I wanna thank my Connecticut and Long Island listeners in advance for their patience and support, and invite them to tune in to my NYC show in the meantime. Tuesdays 10-noon on WBAI 99.5 FM, streamed and archived at http://www.wbai.org/. There'll also be a fragrant and varied bouquet of 'PKN hosts filling in for me there (preesh, Folks!), so please check them out, as well. Hope everybody has a pleasant, government-free weekend.
