Perhaps it was a miscommunication, perhaps it was a failing of this hard-of-hearing senior citizen, but State Senator Peter Roskams office called on Friday to say that he believed he had been scheduled for the Sunday a week laterand also, it was not only Fathers Day but his wedding anniversary. Its tough enough to run for Congress without getting your wife upset, so I cast about quickly to get a replacement and did quite well: Kathy Posner, a pro-life Republican is a colorful legendary woman with a heart as big as all outdoors of whom I am very fond.
She graciously acceded. Mike Noonan is just about the best performer a talk radio host can have because hes contentious, candid, revelatory and of great experience at a tender age. Kathy told us something very few knew: that she was slated to run for state Comptroller on a ticket headed by Senator James Meeks, had that third party taken off. Which means that I would at least have a good choice for one major state office anyhow. I got more involved in the debate than I usually do as moderator on the subject of education but Mike held his own and did very well. Thanks to all the call-ins.
