The next presidential election isn’t happening for a year and half, but the hats are already starting to pile up in the proverbial ring. Hillary finally made her official – and much anticipated – announcement, and the Republican contenders are lining up to try and take her down. Our friend (and neighbor) Bill Scher takes time from his busy schedule writing for the Campaign for America’s Future and Politico, and appearing on MSNBC, to handicap the candidates with us.
Also, Bill muses about a rather monumental birthday coming up. Please, no party hats.
Bill nearly relives Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant” adventures. Also, find out what political issue generated the most phone calls and emails to Bill. Remember kids: One person’s public art installation is another person’s vandalism!
Snow is melting, sun is shining, crocuses are blooming…but there’s something else to look for, as Bill explains. Also, what’s going to happen to downtown Northampton now that the BID never existed? And finally, poetry. Wait, why are you running away? Don’t worry: we didn’t write it.
