    I love On Point and the variety of topics. From heart warming topics on cooking traditions to political hot potatoes. Here is a hot potato that needs some attention:

  • Lawrence

    One of the best radio talks shows in the country. Substantive, informational, varied and just plain interesting.

    If more people would listen to shows like this, imagine how intelligent and well-informed we would be. We, as a country could vote for our leaders and politicians based on informed decisions.

    In re: Tom’s question about assault weapons, the current caller (@10:34 a.m.) is on target. We have a gutless, bought and insured Congress that has no intention of doing anything dramatic to improve life in America. The number of times I’ve heard that the NRA is a “Red Herring” is rising sharply, yet NO ONE in Gov’t is standing up to it and to their unending river of cash flowing into the coffers of those Senators and Congresspeople who care more about their careers than they do about making America a safe place to be. It’s atrocious, abominable and time for someone to find a way around the lack of action from our “leaders.”
