Where have all the heroes gone? George McGovern and his legacy

"Where have all the heroes gone?: George McGovern and his legacy" As voters begin to cast their ballots, we will ponder the question of who inspires us today.  George McGovern motivated a generation of activists to become involve in electoral politics.  Are there inspirational political figures today who capture the imaginations and enthusiasm of people?

Many Portland voters have expressed their dissatisfaction with the candidates for mayor.  Some have stated they will write in a candidate?  Will you write in a candidate or vote for one of the two candidates on the ballot?

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
