Can I just say that I have had so much fun? It has been a terrific ride with KGO TV, KGO Radio, ABC Radio and KSFO going back to 1981, when I was like, 12.

My time as a talk show host for KSFO has been highlighted by the privilege of working with the late Lee Rodgers and Officer Vic. We made some magic on the radio.
The listeners of KSFO helped us change the world. We eliminated the cancer-causing agent MTBE from our fuel and we recalled then-Governor Gray Davis (boy, was that a gas!)
I traveled to Iraq, met Vice-President Dick Cheney (that really annoyed a bunch of liberals) and sent over 6 tons of care packages to our troops.

GEORGE W. BUSH IN AFRICA. “Bush is popular in Africa for his anti-AIDS initiative; more, no doubt, than for his personal efforts to improve the lives of poor Africans. Still, the unfolding disaster of the Obama administration reminds us that, while to be a good president it is not enough to be a good man, it definitely helps.”
