It's, Like, Soooooooooooooo Over...

As you know if you have any experience in the squawk radio genre, there are certain topics that it's best to stay away from, e.g. abortion, gun control, etc. These are the topics that are played out as talk fodder and attract the "organized callers," repeating the same talking points ad nauseum, boring the rest of us to tears.

I would propose a moratorium on immigration as a topic. Yeah, I know: dream on. In an industry where most hosts seem to think people in the real world actually give a rat's patoot about the finer points of national politics, I'm sure it'll be more of the same ol' same ol'...
