Mostly politics. With a side of personal. Always #profound, perhaps problematic.
Episode details

A couple genuine questions to my listeners as you chew on this #Rant:

  • How long after a mass murder is it appropriate to debate policy changes that attempt to lessen the chance it happens again?

  • If ambushing a press conference is pure “politicization” and “disgusting politics,” how would you describe attending a campaign fundraiser for financial contributions in the hours after a massacre in the state you govern?

I await your answers, feedback and unvarnished critiques.
