(Psst to Vikings: You could’ve had Matt Cassel for next to nothing.)
It does raise the question of whether a fence is really the way to get to the actual problem.
Speaking of chocolate and dogs, here’s a list of outdoor threats to your pooch.
WHAT WE’RE DOING
Another great topic in the second hour:the moral strain of flu. Do you keep your kids home when they’re sick? Or do you send them off to school because keeping them home is a pain in the neck? Do you go to work when you’re sick?
Midday (11-1): Last night, Tom Crann hosted a session with broadcast news legend Roger Mudd. Tom promised me yesterday he’d ask about the day Mudd walked out on CBS when they gave Walter Cronkite’s gig to Dan Rather. The session will be broadcast in the second hour. In the first hour, Minnesota House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher and Senate Majority Leader Larry Pogemiller talk about the waning legislative session. I may live blog it here.
Talk of the Nation (1-3): Political editor Ken Rudin in the first hour. The job market for college grads and the difficulty of finding internships in the second hour. MPR’s Tim Post did that story last week.
All Things Considered (3-6:30): More on the flu from MPR’s Tim Nelson. Also: Where are Pakistan’s nukes?
WEDNESDAY! WEDNESDAY! WEDNESDAY!
Join me here this evening at 7 for the News Cut live blogging of a session in the UBS Forum about severe weather. Cathy Wurzer talks to Paul Huttner, Craig Edwards, Mark Seeley and special guest meteorologist Paul Douglas about tornadoes, floods, straight line winds and other public safety threats that come with warm weather. We’ll discuss how accurately storms can be predicted, how storms are formed and how to protect yourself and your property.
And, we’ll prove it’s possible to talk about the weather without needing to stand outside in the backyard garden.
