Monday News Night, 14 May 2012

Radio Free Kansas, 10PM (CDT)

Programming Schedule:

Free Speech Radio News announced that a emergency situation is quickly developing: "We now expect further delays in payments from our major funder. As a result, we must raise $75,000 in by June 30, instead of the $22,000 we calculated last week." - Alan Searle, Development Director

We'll continue airing FSRN and keep you aware of this crisis in the coming days and weeks.  If you can support FSRN with any amount, it is appreciated.

Wing Nut News Items: Elma Luthye, Topeka, Kansas wrote a scathing letter to the state capitol's single daily newspaper "Kobach's clients" and provoked a flurry of comments a minority defending the Secretary of State's nationwide moonlighting escapades. "Mr. Happy" a regular informed writer commented with a sourced list of Kobach's clients.

Also, the flap over Brownback and his neo-conservative majority in the state legislature goes viral in the state's largest daily newspapers; Tim Carpenter, Topeka Capital Journal issues a late report on the narrow differences. The $35,000 per day bill for going into "overtime" was covered over the weekend in the Kansas City Star by Brent D. Wistrom, Steve Kraske and Brad Cooper.

Then writing for the editorial board of the Wichita Eagle Rhonda Holman pens "Session mostly a mess" the most gentle of descriptions for Brownback's "revolution in a corn field."

Largely despised by Kansas Democrats as a turncoat, former partisan Sen. Chris Steineger (R - Kansas City) revealed at Think Progress that the "marketing campaign by supporters of the bill inundated him with materials that 'explain why sharia law is coming and Muslims are trying to take over America.' ”  The funniest comment from the Topeka Capital Journal article was by Potter, " I want a law preventing aliens from outter [sic] space from holding office...cause ya know, it could happen....."

I'll try to read local news grass root groups from across Kansas between music and short news segments.
