Midterm elections are happening Tuesday November 4th, and they’re making us as anxious and cranky as, well, midterm exams used to. Our friend and frequent MSNBC guest Bill Scher takes some time from his busy schedule writing for Campaign for America’s Future and other publications to try and soothe us. We also give our take on some of the local races, and discuss some of the philosophical debates raised by the ballot questions – for instance, why is the Commonwealth of Massachusetts supporting a monopoly? Why can’t our downtown businesses get the same guarantees of no competition from the state? These and other spleen ventings await you in this extra long episode of The Bill Dwight Show!
Oh, and Happy Halloween!
Bill’s a little cranky about a new proposal from the folks who want to build casinos in the area. You’ve heard of the “Twinkie defense?” Bill may have just come up with the Twinkie OFFENSE.
In more uplifting news, this weekend at Diva’s Nightclub in Northampton, there’s an event to benefit local Gay Straight Alliance groups. Organizer Suzan Seymour and performer John Brandoli talk about the event, and why even Northampton needs more gay rights advocacy.

Easthampton Mayor Mike Tautznik stops by to discuss his support for casinos, solar panels on landfills, and other projects he’s working on.
Also, Bill impugns Bill Scher’s taste in music, and compares him to yet another animal. While those two hug it out, you should definitely read Bill’s piece on Senator Rand Paul and his toilet.

Bill and Jaz are suffering from sleep deprivation, flooding, and an infestation of ants, just to name a few things. Nerves are starting to fray. Luckily, Bill Scher and State Senator Stan Rosenberg are on the phone to bring calm and order to the day’s proceedings.
Also, I’m not sure why you can barely hear Bill in the first few moments, but it seemed to correct itself.
