I miss Mystery Science Theatre 3000. It was on every weekend for, what ten years? My favorite episode was when they did "The Day the Earth Froze." You can't get that one on DVD due to copyright or something. There is a cool fan website I'll make a link once I get this Blog figured out. Until then go to and check it out if you're a fan. Then again if you are a fan you most likely already know about the site and this post is pretty useless.

Hello. Now that I have a blog I would like to say a few things. What the hell is wrong with Bill Bennet? Now I'm asking "where is the outrage?" (remember he was spouting the same diatribe during the Clinton sex scandle) I am really sorry to be starting my Blog about a morning talk show host five people in South Carolina listen to. However, his coments are probably the most racist and backward ideas I've ever heard . They are so vile I won't post them here, but you can read the transcript at However I would like to post the angry email I sent him. I should mention he has yet to apologize or take any responsibility for his statement. He has gone on other talk shows and actualy defended his comments. On Hannity he stated "My wife has done more for poor blacks than the entire black caucus." This guy was Secretary of Education while I was in school. But I made it out ok, thankfully. Here is my email.

Your Racist statement on Sept. 28, where you entertain the idea that aborting black babies would lower the crime rate, exposes an ignorance and hatred that is often associated with conservative radio. You, Sir, are a perfect example of the false virtue of the "pro-family-values" movement. Truthfully, I stopped listening to your program months ago, I had found it boring, after reading today's transcript, I fear those who find you the least bit interesting.
