Straight Talk about the War in Iraq
By Jim Babka
Right before Christmas, I did a show with Jerry Hughes, host of Straight Talk, on the Accent Radio Network. I've been meaning to post it for awhile. The topic? The War in Iraq. Here's what I enjoyed about this show: Jerry challenged me every step of the way. It was a frank yet polite exchange. Jerry is a gentlemen. But he didn't pull punches intellectually. I wish lots of people could hear this show because many of their concerns were voiced, and, I believe, answered. I wish every bit of the national debate was so focused, so issue-oriented, rather than the partisan grandstanding shoutfests we're treated to on the talking head's shows and talk radio programs. The file is attached in mp3 format to this blog post and has been edited for your listening convenience. My thanks to the Accent Radio Network for providing this clip. I'm on Jerry Hughes' show most Fridays at 3 PM Eastern. I encourage you to listen.
