This Just In ...

"Three words which sent a liberal scurrying for the exit" or, how some liberals have no sense of humor

One of my favorite interviews when I worked at WUWM, Milwaukee Public Radio was when Rick Smolan visited our studios.


Yes, it's true, bleeding heart liberals. I worked at public radio......FOR OVER 11 YEARS!

Back to the business at hand.

The name Rick Smolan may not ring a bell, but you’ve probably seen his work. Smolan is one of the key creators of the Day in the Life series of books, described this way on

The most renowned photography book series in history. Created by Rick Smolan and David Elliot Cohen. Every Day in the Life book is shot by approximately 100 top photojournalists during a single 24-hour period.”

The end result is a gorgeous coffee table size book filled with incredible pictures. When Smolan and I met, we discussed his adventurous project, “A Day in the Life of America.”

Looking back, Smolan reminds me in many ways of Ken Burns, whom I also met and interviewed, that has captured so much of what is great about our history and culture.

Meeting Smolan. That was about 25 years ago, and I still remember.

That’s why I more than chuckled when I stumbled upon a blog by Chris Wysocki of Caldwell, New Jersey who related a hilarious anecdote demonstrating that liberals, though quick to dish it out, are very thin-skinned and can’t take it in return. They’re not warm and fuzzy and inclusive. In fact, many have no sense of humor whatsoever.

Case in point……a blog I read  while filling in on WISN last Friday.

Imagine a bent out of shape liberal at a party, getting all huffy and puffy and storming out of the room.

Enjoy, and thank you, Chris Wysocki.
