September 6: The Hsu on the Other Foot

Hologram on the new North Carolina drivers license looks just like the logo of the Security & Prosperity Partnership.

Our weekly capitol report from Tim Murphy of NewsRadio 950 KWOS in Jeff City started things off this afternoon. The big news to the south this week is the demolition of the old prison there, which dates back to 1836. TIME once called the prison the “bloodiest 47 acres in America”, and one of our Off-Road Friday guests, Gil McDonald, believes that the site is a secret ET base.

Maybe the demolition is government retaliation against the ETs, part of Governor Blunt’s campaign to rid the state of illegal aliens.

September 5: Sex Criminal Wants His Porn Back


Sen. Larry “I Didn’t Mean ‘Quit'” Craig

Lots of calls this afternoon prompted by a story from California: A man in San Mateo who was just released from jail after being convicted of videotaping a woman and her daughter in their apartment is demanding the return of his porn collection. Apparently the Marin County police still have his 500 porn videos and 250+ porn magazines and he wants them back.

While taking calls on this story today, Cosmo & JC, the morning team at our sister station Y107, got a call from a guy who calmly admitted that he’d served 32 months in jail for molesting a five-year-old girl. (He thinks the guy in California should get his porn back.)

September 4: Al Garza, Det. Andy Anderson, Penny Smith


Al Garza



Detective Andy Anderson



Penny Smith

I had the honor of talking with a couple of men I really respect this afternoon, guys who each, in their own way, are standing up to defend the principles on which America was founded.

First, we welcomed Al Garza, Executive Director of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, back to The Drive. He talked about the situation brewing over in Kansas City, where “civil rights” groups La Raza and the NAACP are threatening to take their national conventions elsewhere. Why? Because K.C. Mayor Mark Funkhouser named 73-year-old Frances Semler, a member of the Minutemen, to the parks board.

August 30: The Not For Sale Campaign


Caleb Rowden and John Battaglia

Think “abolition” — if you ever do — and you probably think John Brown, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Abraham Lincoln. It was a surprise to me that slavery is still a problem in the 21st century, and so I was happy to welcome Caleb Rowden and John Battaglia of the Christian Chapel in Columbia to talk about the Not For Sale Campaign. They’ll host the NFSC at the Christian Chapel Wednesday, September 12 at 6:45pm.

Chief Randy Boehm

Chief Randy Boehm joined us this afternoon to discuss the special events coming to Columbia over the next 30 days — Roots ‘N Blues ‘N Barbecue, the Missouri 600, and Mizzou football — and the red light cameras coming to town.

August 28: Senator Kit Bond


Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo.)

We talked with Penny Smith of C & S Business Services today about the issues employers face with bilingual employees, and we’ll talk about that again next Tuesday with a greater emphasis on immigration issues. Rather timely, given that Missouri’s Hispanic population has more than doubled since the 1990 census.

At 5:00, we were joined by Missouri’s senior senator, Kit Bond. We talked about his role in the revised FISA bill, the situation on the ground in Iraq, and the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. A good interview, and the senator was very gracious in declaring himself a fan of The Drive (aw, I’ll bet he says that to all the talk show hosts!).
