Media Matters for America
Bozell repeated lie that Lay slept in Lincoln Bedroom during Clinton years. Hmm, I've heard this "lie" before and I thought it to be true. Which just goes to show you that if a lie is repeated often enough, people believe it.

Many thanks to Lyndon LaRouche for his appearance on Dialog on Tuesday. Is he the same guy you thought he was? Check out his website for more information. Or give him a call at 1-800-929-7566. By the way - my two last questions ... the ones I asked off air ... we recorded them and I'll play those for you on Friday as part of the Worst of Dialog Volume 3.

Click the photo for a pretty comprehensive Lyndon LaRouche Bialography found on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. LaRouche is this morning's guest. Should be fun.

Election Postponement: Good for Democrats or Republicans. This morning's guest, Gary Gagliardi, comments on my question this morning about postponing the elections. Kind of lets his partisan view get in the way on the answer, I think. What do you think? Let me know. Let Gary know. Tell a friend. :)
I've got to confess. I'm pretty excited about tomorrow's guest. He is - to date - the most well-known guest I will have interviewed ... either on Dialog or during my previous life as a newspaper reporter. He's been a candidate for president in every election since 1976. Plus he ran for US Rep in Virginia in 1990. His web site lists him as a Democratic pre-candidate for US President. We'll ask him (among other things) what that means tomorrow.
Thanks to Gary Gagliardi, America's Leading Authority of Sun Tzu's The Art of War, for spending time with us Monday morning to discuss the strategy behind this years election. While I agree that the DNC SHOULD dump Kerry, I doubt they will ... meaning we'll have a snoozefest this year ... and possibly keep the Bush in office. Make sure the check out Gary's blog for some neat day-to-day insight.

You may notice a few changes to the web site. I'm trying to update/freshen it, while giving it a more universal look. There were two primary blues on the web pages and that's always driven me nuts. Most of the blues should now be the same color - with the exception of a page or two here or there. The poll is now linked straight from the front page, making it easier to access. And the Dialog page is a little cleaner looking, in my honest opinion. Over the next few days and weeks, I hope to make additional changes, including some all-new links that you should find of interest, and an update to the picture page to incorporate the newer pictures which are currently found on the blog ... plus some other pictures that I've said were coming ... and now they really are. As always, please feel free to let me know what you think. Thanks and happy browsing.
Bush's cheap shot at Edwards. Here's some criticism of the Bush White House from a very unusual source ... Joe Scarborough.

Here's channel 2's story on the lifting of the moratorium. We won't get to talk about it today - since Henry Wojtaszek, Niagara Country Republican Chairman, probably isn't a Wal-Mart expert ... but we can discuss tomorrow during Open Dialog.

Weekly Dig
Michael Badnarik Thinks You're a Libertarian. Here's another really good article on today's guest.
Libertarian Lessons of "Fahrenheit 9/11" - Jonathan David Morris. Here's an interesting look at Farenheit 9/11 while keeping a keen eye on our guest from this morning, Michael Badnarik.
Niagara Buzz
I mentioned this morning that I had a beef with the Erie County Democratic Party. Well, here's an email I wrote to EC Dem Party Chairman Len Lenihan after finding out that the party unanimously endorsed Jack Davis for congress - completely ignoring Paul Fallon. Anyway - read the letter, you'll like it. BTW, I've not gotten a response from either Lenihan or the handful of Democratic Party "leaders" I sent it to from Niagara County.
Thanks to Libertarian Presidential Candidate Michael Badnarik for his appearance on Dialog on Wednesday. Despite the phone problems, I thought it went well. Again, I appologize about the phones. Wish I could do more than appologize. Hope I asked the right questions for you all.

This is the cake we had at WLVL to celebrate president Bush's birthday. Yes, I really made it. Yes, I really decorated it. No, there isn't any left ... and, No, noone got sick from eating it. Posted by Hello
Sources: Kerry to unveil VP choice. The announcement is expected some time during the 9 a.m. hour. I'll find out ... and let you know during Dialog.

Assemblywoman Francine DelMonte attempts to explain why the budget hasn't been passed on time since I was nine years old. Thanks to Francine for finally appearing on Dialog on Friday. I hope she's willing to come back in the future. :) Posted by Hello

Here's the whole thing wrapped up in a nutshell. This is why I'd vote for Kerry. At least, why I'd vote for him if I were in Ohio ... or some state that was still in play. Who knows, I may still end up voting for him. *sigh* I just wish there were SOMEONE ELSE!!! Posted by Hello

Here's the first in a series of "honest" John Kerry stickers. Don't worry, I'll make up some Bush one's too. Posted by Hello
