A very special episode! We are pleased to welcome guest Mayor David Narkewicz to our panel.
In the first half we speak, of course, on Justice Antonin Scalia’s passing, and how this will effect the Supreme Court and the presidential race. Who will be nominated? We also discuss local politics, including the election for the seat of departing Amherst rep Ellen Story.
In the second half of the show we touch briefly on the happenings at WMUA, then talk about
Dylann Roof tries to start a race war, and instead draws the ire of the nation. But we speak about the differences in our reactions from both sides. We then pivot to speaking about the Supreme Court decision concerning the state of Texas’ ability to not approve a licence plate.
