Got my radio turned on. WLIB in Gotham, 1190 on the AM dial. Yes, it's noon on March 31st - the official debut of Air America, the new liberal radio network. And there's Al Franken, following JFK's inaugural speech, introducing his new show, The O'Franken Factor - and claiming that his show and the new network are a key part of "a battle for America itself." First guest is Bob Kerrey. Hilarious and interesting at the same time. Don't know if this will fly for the long term - critics who say that liberals are often too serious for entertainment value on the airwaves may well be right. But Al Franken just makes me laugh.
