Saved by the Bob

After our scheduled guest had to postpone at the last minute, the ever-entertaining Bob Flaherty rescues us with his usual blend of humor and human interest stories. His latest column for the Daily Hampshire Gazette covers former Amherst resident Kimi Takesue’s documentary about Uganda, “Where Are You Taking Me?”

Once again, Bill makes his case against casinos, and pleads his case for an even better idea.

As always, Bill Scher gives us the scoop on the political lay of the land in his Progressive Breakfast.
