This weeks show was taped only a couple of days after the tragic plane crash near Dillingham, Alaska that killed 5 people, including former Senator Ted Stevens. The assembled panel included a journalist who covered Stevens for decades, a politician who worked with Stevens for decades, and a great friend of the former senator who was his law partner in the early 1960s.
In the first part of the program, we dissect Ballot Prop 2-parental notification.
Dr. Monique Karaganis-Board certified pediatrician at Polar Pediatrics talks about Ballot Prop 2 and why you should vote no. Bernadette Wilson, Chair of Alaskans for Parental Rights agreed to have someone debate the merits of Ballot Prop 2, but apparently, they can only talk about it in the friendly confines of right-wing radio. She cancelled half an hour before the taping.
