Question: Impossible for today was: Who wrote "All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others"? (Answer at bottom.)
Today we talked about Barack Obama's new limo. Here are some facts:
... The limo has 8-inch-thick doors.
... It features a completely sealed interior to ward off a chemical attack
.... It has it's own codename: Stagecoach
... Every communication capability will be at Obama's fingertips: phones, satellites, the Internet
... From the inside, says a former Secret Service agent, it's like being in a sound-proof cocoon. Everyday noises will be gone.
Wonder about gas mileage?
See ya Thursday!

First off, the Question: Impossible for today was: what was the first minimum wage in the U.S.? (Answer at the end...)
A New Year's Blessing
May God Make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardship from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God's love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
After talking about Apple president Steve Jobs illness yesterday, a bag of apples appeared in the office refrigerator today (no kidding). Hmmm, thank you gift or coincidence?
And I leave you with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JHS8adO3hM
Answer: 25 cents per hour. The minimum wage was first introduced in 1938, it hit $1 in 1956, $2 in 1974, $3 in 1980, $4 in 1991, and $5 in 1997.

Apples weren't helping Steve Jobs. (The kind you eat anyway...)
First off, here's the photo I took while on the air in the 5 o'clock hour. (Yes I promised, didn't I...)
Good thing is - My phone takes pretty good pics.
Bad thing is - I'm in it. (I have a really round head.)
Well, first day back on the air in the afternoon went by without incident. Remember this is interactive radio so don't forget to call or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop me a line at facebook under Ed Franklin.
Tim Kidder and I talked about Steve Jobs' hormonal imbalance. Jobs says the imbalance has been "robbing" his body of the proteins it needs to be healthy. Everything that was mentioned in the press release was VERY non-specific about his condition. Strange. Can you say "cover-up"?
Also we didn't mention it on the air but congratulations to Angie who used to be our secretary at the station and who now is the designer of our website on the birth of her new baby girl this past weekend. Mother and baby are doing fine. Good night and GO BUCKS!
