    Saying goodbye to WRKO

    Saying goodbye to WRKO

    After 374 Sunday’s, this was our final show on WRKO. It has been a great experience. I had many people to thank, starting with Gregg Jackson who pushed me into this crazy idea in the summer of 2004. There are lots of folks at WRKO to thank, from Todd Feinburg to Howie Carr to the great roster of producers, Sandy, Bernie, Producer Rob, Dan the Man, Ed, Horseshack. I don’t have a bad thing to say about WRKO. They gave me a great platform to do what I wanted for 374 weekends, so you won’t hear me complaining or saying they owe me week 375. In fact, I owe them.

    I very much appreciated what Cooksie did for me, giving me a final show to say goodbye to a loyal group of listeners. That doesn’t always happen in radio, as I’ve seen firsthand, so I very much apprecated that. Thank you to everyone who listened to, supported and contributed to the show.

    Producer Rob is just one of many people I’ve met from doing the show who will remain friends long into the future. Boston Maggie, Stephanie Davis, Garret Quinn and so many more. Same goes for my last in-studio guest, Chris Selland. I really appreciate his coming in for what was, honestly, a strange show.

    I want to thank Senator Brown for calling in. He’s been a great friend of the show, calling since his days as a State Rep. It was really touching that he would take time out of his busy schedule to do that.

    Finally, how can one thank Bruce McQuain for all he has done for Pundit Review Radio? If I’m proud of anything about this experience, it is bringing the Someone You Should Know segment to the radio every Sunday night. Bruce did such an amazing job telling us these inspirational stories because he knows of what he speaks, 28 years in the Army, Vietnam vet. He’s been there and done that. Listening tio these stories every week has been a real education, and an honor. Bruce and I will always remain friends…and who knows…..

    Cato's Walter Olson on Obamacare

    Cato's Walter Olson on Obamacare

    Walter Olson is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute’s Center for Constitutional Studies. He is also the man behind a great blog, Overlawyered, that turns 13 today! Congratulations! Finally, Walter is the author of a great book, Schools for Misrule: Legal Academia and an Overlawyered America. Tonight he returned to Pundit Review Radio to discuss the Obamacare ruling, Roberts rationale and whether he should be considered a statesmen or a sucker. Finally, I would have been remiss in my hosting duties if I did not ask Walter about our Legal Academia star running for United States Senate, Professor Tall Tale, aka Fauxcahauntis.

    Someone You Should Know: SFC Michael A. Duchesne

    Someone You Should Know: SFC Michael A. Duchesne

    Bruce McQuain from Blackfive joined us once again for Someone You Should Know, our weekly tribute to the troops. Bruce spent 28 years in the U.S. Army and he is a veteran of the Vietnam war. He brings a perspective and understanding to these stories that we could never match.
    This week Bruce told us about Sergeant First Class Michael A. Duchesne. According to his Silver Star citation,

    "Sergeant First Class Michael A. Duchesne’s technical and tactical proficiency, calmness under fire and decisiveness were critical to the platoon’s accomplishment of the mission and the safety of its Rangers. His superior performance, competence and stamina contributed significantly to mission completion and success throughout the operation. Sergeant First Class Michael A. Duchesne distinctive accomplishments reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, the United States Army and the Department Of Defense."

    Why is hearing from the other side so offensive to some people?

    Why is hearing from the other side so offensive to some people?

    I welcomed my friend Jonathan Lewis back to the show this weekend. Jonathan is a liberal and someone I really enjoy talking politics with. Last time he was on, the conversation was mostly about the fine art of political discourse, agreeing to disagree without becoming disagreeable. That said, we never did get around to disagreeing much, so this weekend, we kept it simple, Does President Obama deserve a second term? Jonathan said yes and had every opportunity to make his case. That in and of itself was too much for some longtime listeners and e-mailers to the show. Some conservatives, unfortunately, don’t want to hear from the other side. They seem offended by even hearing a differing point of view. They want an echo chamber. Very disappointing IMHO.

    That can only mean one thing in the coming weeks on Pundit Review Radio…more liberal guests!

    George Washington: Military Genius

    George Washington: Military Genius

    This was indeed an honor to speak with Gen. Dave Palmer, former Superintendent of West Point and author of a fantastic book, George Washington: Military Genius

    "Palmer, historian and former superintendent of West Point, makes a convincing case that America is free, united, and governed by civilians because of Washington’s strategic foresight and tactical brilliance. No subsequent revolution in a dozen other nations ended so happily. Palmer pooh-poohs historians who describe Washington as a commander of limited ability who won by not losing, i.e., avoiding battles until the British grew tired of the struggle. Reviewing his generalship, Palmer maintains that Washington was aggressive and imaginative, willing to take risks but always aware of his ultimate goal. Palmer reminds readers that the Continental Congress launched the revolution beautifully but managed it dreadfully, growing increasingly faction ridden and ineffectual as the economy slid toward ruin. Washington remained loyal—perhaps his most impressive accomplishment—by keeping a restive army under control and quashing a rebellion among officers. This is a relentlessly admiring portrait, but Palmer has a critical historian’s eye for 18th-century war and politics, avoids uncritical worship of our founding fathers, and enjoys the advantage of a subject who was genuinely admirable. Maps."

    Someone You Should Know: Sgt. Julia Bringloe

    Someone You Should Know: Sgt. Julia Bringloe

    Bruce McQuain from Blackfive joined us once again for Someone You Should Know, our weekly tribute to the troops. Bruce spent 28 years in the U.S. Army and he is a veteran of the Vietnam war. He brings a perspective and understanding to these stories that we could never match.
    This week Bruce told us about Army Sgt. Julia Bringloe

    A nearby Apache gunship pilot radioed Bringloe’s crew, “Medevac, you guys are crazy.”

    Helping her strap the dead translator to the line while she stayed behind, soldiers on the ground had to remind Bringloe to duck. “Somehow I think I’m impervious to bullets or something,” she said.
    With the translator’s body safely aboard the Black Hawk above, Bringloe latched herself to the now vacant cable. The insurgents on the ridgeline promptly concentrated their fire on her dangling form. The high velocity rounds streamed past her as she rose, and sounded like “a kind of whistling” she later explained. Troops below radioed to Sabiston above, “They’re shooting at your medic! Get out of here!”
    Unable to alter his position or risk dragging Bringloe into another tree, Sabiston had to remain hovering for a full 15 seconds while half-a-dozen insurgents pounded round after round at Bringloe on the rising cable. Breaking out the only weapon available, co-pilot CWO Ken Brodhead chambered a round in a nearby M4 and began firing from his window.

    Though she doesn’t know how much it helped, Bringloe said “I thought it was pretty funny though. I love that guy.”

    Sgt. Julia Bringloe joins only six other women to have received the Distinguished Flying Cross, including Amelia Earhart. The Flying Cross recognizes “extraordinary achievement for an aerial flight.”

    The Someone You Should Know radio collaboration began as an extension of Matt Burden’s series at Blackfive. Bruce does an incredible job with the series every week.
