*Updated, with new info on the bottom...
Gracias to those of you who listened last week to my debut on KPFK-FM 90.7 and left supportive comments (rest of you can listen to the archived version here; scroll down to "Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2008, 4:03 p.m. and click "Play"--never mind that the host listed is Alex Ko). On the show today will be members of the Orange County Dream to talk about efforts by Know Nothings in the California State Legislature and across the country to deny in-state tuition to undocumented college students and Greatest Religion Reporter Ever William Lobdell to discuss the controversy regarding Purpose-Driven Rick giving the invocation at Barack Obama's inauguration. For the final segment, I'll take listener calls starting at 4:40 p.m. (818-985-2711) about the few, the proud: churches, mosques, synagogues, and temples that truly do the Lord's work, don't support pedo-priests, and don't discriminate against anyone or engage in love-the-sinner, hate-the-sin duplicity. And for those of you listening at home when you find this after I give muchos gratuitous plugs to this post: start commenting!
