A Great Time For A Great Paws

As I've mentioned often, some of my best friends are in law enforcement and one of them was part of the K9 unit.  I came to learn not only how hard it is to be successful with a dog as a partner but also how unconditionally courageous the dogs are.  As one officer put it: "There's no hesitation on the dogs part when confronting danger.  It's so unbelievable to see".  In addition, these canines can do things that humans can't and that goes a long way to improving enforcement.

Kalamazoo Gathers A Year Later To Remember

I'm sure we all remember where we were and what we were doing a year ago tonight and tomorrow.  Most of us got the news the next morning, were in shock the rest of that Sunday and remain so to a certain extent.  "Something like that just doesn't happen around here" I heard so many people say but it does and it did.

Worst Grammys Ever? [Videos]

If I wasn't in the "music business" there's a good chance I wouldn't bother to watch the Grammys.  For one thing, Rock has been all but forgotten and, unlike the Oscars that set aside popularity for quality, the Grammys are all about popularity.  There are more Rap categories than Rock categories and yet, rappers think they should be in the R&R HOF.  Ok... a little off the subject.

My Last First Date

With Valentine's Day next week, the talk around the hallowed halls of Townsquare Media S.W. Michiagn today was first dates.  Someone asked me for a worst first date story and, frankly, I really don't have one.  Maybe because my last first date was November 11, 1983.  That night I took a girl from Racine, WI named Karla to see Genesis at the Rosemont Horizon in Chicago.
