News, notes and necessities

items of interest the week of Dec. 1, 2008

an occasional update from me, Scott Leffler

News: Reminder: WLVL is now streaming online at

Monday: On Reason, we’re going to talk sports with Tim Schmitt … and then discuss the long weekend that was … and the horrible shopping accident on Long Island. If you were judge and jury, what would you do to those involved? Meanwhile, over on Dialog, I’ll talk with Bob Confer and take phone calls.

Thursday: On Reason, we’ll talk with the creators of a very funny book … filled with pictures of kids crying! An instant classic.

Friday: Lockport Mayor Mike Tucker will be in studio on Dialog … making up for his absence last week.

Notes: It seems like forever ago now that I put up a poll asking whether Hillary Clinton would be picked as part of Barack Obama’s cabinet. I must admit, it seemed highly unlikely when I posted the poll … but news reports say today is the day that it will be announced.

Don’t forget “the forum” at … lots of fun stuff there, but it’s been quiet lately. Go strike up a conversation.

Necessities: One of the posters in “the forum” pointed out this super cool website. Check it out.
