What does Jonathan have to say?



Now What?

So the mid-term elections didn't necessarily go how I wanted, but what to do now?    I've been going through phases: 1) Anger.   This doesn't last because picking fights with "the other side" doesn't go very far.  I'm probably not going to change people's minds on some key differences.  Those who think this is a Christian nation will not understand how that statement makes me feel rather un-easy as a Jew.  2. Happy.  I can be grateful that I live in a country where we have free elections. 3. Anger.  The second phase is making me angry again because I'm thinking about all those political ads financed by third party groups that were filled with generalizations and lies. 4. Exercise.  I found myself very motativated to run yesterday.  When I got tired, I started thinking about things "the other side" said during this election that got me steamed and I was able to pick up the pace in my run. 5. Anger/Pride.  I'm angry about the things I was thinking about during my run, but proud I ran faster than expected. 6. Fatigue.  I'm feeling an overload from all the chatter about the election and our freedom.  Also, I'm tired from the run. 7. Hunger.  I'm ready to eat something because food is usually a way for me to have a temporary escape from something that's making me angry. 8. Delight.  I forgot the McRib is back!  Woo hoo!  (This is not a paid endorsement for McDonald's.  I truly love the McRib.) 9. Disgust.  Did I really just have three McRib sandwiches?! 10.  Anger.  How could I have three McRibs?!  I mean they're good, but I need to pace myself. 11. Denial.  I didn't really have three McRibs and Ron Johnson didn't really beat Russ Feingold. 12. Acceptance.  I guess this means I just have to wait three days to have another McRib and two years to vote again.

Loved the playlist from you and Kitty yesterday morning! Who chooses the playlist during your show? The music is always so great! And thanks again for cheering me up after the election failure. Also, could you all cool it on the Ray LaMontagne..... its not good enough to play as often as your station does.

World's Worst iPod:Jay Ferguson "Thunder Island"
The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

Songs for Tax Day
So I learned today that if you're getting a refund, there's no penalty for not getting your taxes in by today's deadline. But why would you want the government to keep your money any longer than they already do? With that question in mind...
