Tonight on “The David Goldstein Show”, 7PM to 10PM on Newsradio 710-KIRO:
7PM: “The Stranger Hour” with Erica Barnett
We’re kicking off a new feature, in which a writer from The Stranger joins me for the hour to recap the week’s local news, and give a preview of what’s coming up in the next issue. Erica Barnett is my first victim, and topics will include the Sound Transit II and Regional Transportation Improvement District (RTID) plans that have just been finalized, as well as a discussion of Seattle’s controversial nightlife ordinance.
8PM: Do you believe in Obama?
4000 “Obamans” paid $25 to $100 a head, and crowded the WAMU Theater last night to witness presidential Barack Obama “make history.” Or at least, that’s what many in the crowd thought Obama was making. I’ll play clips from the rally, give my own assessment of the candidate and his supporters, then take your calls on what you want in the next president… and what you think you’ll get. It’s an on-air straw poll.
9PM: Questions over choice.
Congresswoman Cathy McMorris announced this week that her 1-month old son has been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. At 38-years-old, McMorris would have surely been advised by her doctors to screen for genetic abnormalities via amniocentesis. One can only assume that her religious convictions led her to decline. Would you abort a Down Syndrome fetus? McMorris made her choice — shouldn’t other women be allowed to make theirs?
Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).
Tune in tomorrow when I’ll be joined by Seattle Port Commissioner Alec Fisken, and Sasha Abramsky, author of American Furies: Crime, Punishment and Vengeance in the Age of Mass Imprisonment
