I'm listening to the healthcare debate in the House

on Fox radio as I write. Why? Because I don't have cable TV, so I don't have C-Span; ABC, CBS, and NBC local affiliates have 8 digital channels between them, and none are carrying this historic debate and vote. Nor is the Fox TV affiliate. The local public television affiliate, with three channels, is not carrying it. Nor is public radio around here.

I find it ironic that the only broadcast source in the 10th largest city in the nation that is carrying the whole debate live is the much-reviled right wing AM talk radio, specifically NEWSTALK 1430 WXNT I'll try not to be snarky the next time one of the big public radio/TV fans at church tell me how ignorant talk radio listeners are.

I ask unanimous consent to advise and extend my remarks ... oops, I got carried away here.

Since you're posting this on the internet, you may want to check out the streaming audio and video options such as CSPAN that you can listen to through your computer's internet connection. For folks with internet access, this is also an option.

Good point, and one I thought of myself- but not until about two hours into the debate. Doh!
