Let's start today's blog with a video you might not want to watch.
An elected official in California has been arrested on accusations of felony child abuse after a neighbor videotaped him beating his stepson with a belt during a backyard game of catch.
I managed to get about 20 seconds in, and I seriously can’t watch the rest.
I know we'll discuss this on air today, and as a matter of fact we may do a panel on the subject of the line between child abuse and child discipline.
In happier news, our station had great success last night with our first GOP Primary Senatorial debate.
The evening was a great success with a sold out house, thousands of page views for the web video, a great sounding radio broadcast, we were trending last night on twitter, it was carried on numerous broadcast TV outlets and we got a follow up story on the front page of the Post-Dispatch this morning!
