Get ready for the Bay Area

Exciting times as today WHYS is starting to broadcast on a fantastic public radio station in San Francisco called KALW. So if over the next few days you wonder why there’s been a sudden injection of Californians that’s why. Matt and all team at KALW, we’re delighted to be joining you.

    I was wondering if the WHYS crew could focus on the more wonderful aspects of liberalism, such as them paying homeless people to come to San Fran, and the aggressiveness and criminality of the homeless people that they apparently love having there, despite making the city rather dangerous. Don’t get too close, they will attack you, even if you give them money.

    With everything that is going on in our country, i.e. soldiers coming home to nothing. I am welcoming a city’s proactive approach to homelessness. I am in Sacramento and we have a lot of homeless people as well. I am not threatened by them even though I live in downtown Sacramento, any more than I am threatened while in San Fransisco.
    I have been to San Fransisco and walked everywhere- if you can’t handle the city then move! You are more likely to have your identity stolen from some hacker with no life, than be mugged by a homeless person in San Fransisco- After all 1/4 of our population is one paycheck away from being homeless.

    If anything, conservatives are to blame for the homeless. They’d rather give tax cuts to big business than to pay for social programs to help the needy.

    I live in Lancaster, PA in the U.S. I know quite a few folks who are in racially mixed marriages or relationships, and in general they have encountered the usual (here in “middle-american” part of the country) looks and occasional comments. I know two older such couples who have, for what it’s worth, said that things are much better now than they were when they married in the sixties or seventies.

    I think it’s careful to clarify the difference between people who marry from differing religious traditions vs. strongly held beliefs. For many secular Jews or Muslims, and nominal Christians or Muslims I think a mixed marriage may present cultural difficulties which are very surmountable through love and compromise. However, it seems like a tall order for people of differing belief systems which are by their nature exclusive, to be married and maintain their beliefs. Because our culture is by and large secular, I think people forget this distinction which I think is crucial to the discussion.

    Keep up the good work, I enjoy listening at work as often as I can.
