Calm the storms that drench my eyes, dry the streams still flowing.....

Despite the fact it's 40-50 degrees warmer in the Twin Cities compared to last week, it's still best to be indoors taking in another installment of The Closer. As usual, we'll get the festivities started at 1:00 PM Central Time and go until 3:00.

Right at 1:00, Michelle Manke of the HD 42A Republicans will call into the program. Michelle will tell us about a MN GOP gubernatorial candidate forum slated to take place this Saturday, January 18 in Roseville. Said forum will be hosted by Northern Alliance Radio Network personalities Mitch Berg and Brad Carlson (hey, that's me!!!).

At 1:15, MN State Senators Michelle Benson and David Osmek will join me in studio for a preview of the upcoming MN legislative session. Sen. Benson has been front and center calling out the lack of accountability with the state's healthcare exchange MNSure and Sen. Osmek has been great in exposing the boondoggle that is subsidizing public transportation. We'll cover those two issues as well as other likely agenda items including another DFL attempt at a gun grab, a minimum wage increase and the thought police legislation anti-bullying bill.

In the 2:00 hour, I'll opine on the scandal involving lane closures in New Jersey and how it may impact Gov. Chris Christie going forward. I'll also discuss the media's borderline obsession with the story and how it pales in comparison to other government scandals.

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 via iheart radio

Even though I have a face for radio, there is a UStream channel where you can watch the broadcast, if you so desire. Check it out here.  

For mobile phone users, there are apps available for iphone, Blackberry and Android!

And if you're so inclined, follow along on Twitter at #narn or "Like" our Facebook page.

Until then.....
