On 1370 WCOA this Morning
I was a featured guest this morning on Pensacola's top-rated morning show, Good Morning Pensacola with Jim Sanborn and Don Parker.
I was sandwiched in between a medical segment on what a "Hospitalist" is and a discussion of why this year's flu -mist vaccine may not protect one from the flu...kind of a different pairing but I went with it anyway..
When it was my turn to be up, though, the discussion moved very quickly from medical issues like gout and chronic pain and centered solely on the County's Response to the Sheriff's budget appeal, and most importantly, the salient reasons why the BCC's recent shade meeting to discuss strategy to defeat the appeal was 100% legal and 100% appropriate. In the brief segment of about 4 minutes, I was also able to discuss the reasons why questioning the Sheriff's expenditures from the Law Enforcement Trust Fund is also an appropriate discussion topic in the BCC's response to the Sheriff's appeal.
