Ryan Gorman is the morning show host on iHeart's NewsRadio WFLA in Tampa. He'll join us for a short conversation about how his city and his region are preparing for a potential category 4 Hurricane Ian to make landfall on Thursday. The latest tracking update suggests landfall slightly further south, so worse for Sarasota and a little less bad for Tampa, but that's just a guess. It's gonna be bad no matter what.


Congressman Ken Buck is one of the key Republican cosponsors of HR 3843, "The Merger Filing Fee Modernization Act of 2022" which seems like tiptoeing into Ken's bigger picture desire to go after "big tech" on anti-trust grounds (which I generally oppose.) Interestingly, the primary sponsor is Boulder Democratic Congressman Joe Neguse and Lauren Boebert is also on the bill. I bet there aren't very many bills over the course of a year that have all three of these folks on them. I also note that the true socialists Pramila Jayapal and Rashida Tlaib are sponsors as is the far-left Mondaire Jones (who, I am pleased to say, will be out of Congress after one term due to losing his primary in a newly created congressional district.) If I were any Republican I'd be very concerned to be on any bill that folks like those support. Yet here we are.

William Perry Pendley is the former Acting Director of the Bureau of Land Management. He has for many years been involved with a case that's dragged on for far too long but will soon be at the Supreme Court, a case of the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers stealing property rights. I hope and absolutely expect SCOTUS to slap down the EPA very hard, but still this family and lots of others will have lost the use and enjoyment of their property for years or decades.

Remarkable lack of self-awareness: BookBar, the indie bookstore and wine bar in Berkeley, will close in January - Denverite, the Denver site!

So she supports the raising of the minimum wage even though it's putting her out of business and costing her minimum wage employees their if this same story won't be repeated over and over. I hate to say this but sometimes lessons have to be very painful to be learned. In a way, although it pains me to think this way, I have to hope that a lot of Denver businesses close because of the minimum wage law so that the fools on the City Council like Comrade Candi CdeBaca learn once and for all that the actual minimum wage is $0.
