News, notes and necessities

items of interest the week of July 28, 2008

an occasional update from me, Scott Leffler

News: A couple guests just confirmed that I wanted to let you know about:

Wednesday, Buffalo Developer Carl Paladino at 10 a.m. on WECK. We’ll talk about him, his business, and a lot of local politics, including his current fight with the Buffalo School Board. He’ll be on all show and we’ll take calls at (716) 783-9325.

Then Wednesday afternoon, I’ll be anchoring a live remote from the Niagara County Fair from 2 to 5 p.m. Come out and say ‘hi.’

Thursday, Marcia Pappas, president of the New York State chapter of the National Organization for women, talking about whether I’m sexist or she’s looney. That’s at 10 a.m. on WECK … and depending on how it goes, may re-air at 11 a.m. on WLVL.

Notes: The current poll on the blog asks about campaign finance reform … whether it should be more strict, less strict, or if it’s just right. As usual, I’m in the minority.

The forum is up to 22 people, so I added AirFox, which seems to have pleased MindCrime. Bratty Jenn is our most recent returnee. And I’m happy to have her.

Stats: This month has been the busiest month ever for both (over 11,000 hits so far) and the podcasts are having their third highest downloads ever (over 23,000).

I’m a day late on the newsletter (you may have noticed) … and it’s column day, so I’m off to write some more.

Necessities: Need to chat with a friend, but they don’t have an IM? Try Chatzy.

I sent this to you because I thought you might appreciate it. If I was wrong, please just respond and ask to be taken off the mailing list. I’ll take care of it. If this was forwarded to you and you’d like to receive future updates, please email and ask to be added to the list. I’ll make that happen.
