The government is open again, which means so too is your wallet. We'll address a lot of those issues on today's edition of The Closer, which will air in its normal 1:00 until 3:00 PM time slot.
At 1:15, GOP political strategist Matt Mackowiak will check in to the program. I'll get his insights on the agreement to end the shutdown and how the proverbial long knives have come out against Sen. Ted Cruz, House Speaker John Boehner, et al.
Then in the 2:00 hour, there will be a heavy sports emphasis. I've come across a few stories this past week where the culture has intersected with news about the lives of professional athletes. Do you care if your favorite pro athlete leads an immoral life off the field/court as long as it doesn't take away from his stellar performance on the field/court?
So please give me a call at (651) 289-4488 if you'd like to discuss any of the topics I plan on addressing. You can also text comments/questions to (651) 243-0390.
You can listen live in the Twin Cities at AM 1280 on your radio dial. In and out of the Minneapolis-St Paul area, you can listen to the program on the Internet by clicking this link, or check us out viaiheart radio.
