Tonight on “The David Goldstein Show”, 7PM to 10PM on News/Talk 710-KIRO:
7PM: Got votes?
Tuesday is Washington state’s first ever August primary election, and that’s got a lot of pols worried that turnout will be even lighter than usual for an off-year primary. Assistant Secretary of State Nick Handy will join me by phone to give us the latest forecast, and predict whether vote-by-mail will help make up the slack (you know, in those counties that have all vote-by-mail.) Then Sandeep Kaushik will call in to make one last pitch for the King County parks levies. Have you voted yet? Do you plan to vote? And if not, why do you hate America?
8PM: Lose pounds, earn euros?
When King County banned trans fat and required nutritional labeling in restaurants, many critics complained that this was nanny-statism gone too far. So I wonder what these folks would have to say about the town in Italy that’s planning to pay its residents 250 euros ($350) to lose weight and keep it off? What would it take for you to slim down? Healthy menu choices? Better nutritional information? A $350 bribe?
9PM: HA says taxes are too low? Are we stoned or something?
Fellow HA blogger Carl will be joining me in the studio to explain his controversial assertion that our taxes are actually too low! Is he high or something? Well, that might be a better question to pose to fellow HA blogger Lee, who will also be joining me in the studio to give us a first hand report from HempFest 2007.
Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).
My show will be preempted again by a Seahawks preseason game next Saturday.
