Tuesday 10 ~ Virginia Sinicki

TuesdayLast week we learned more about the “K” of the KVJ Radio Show, Kevin Rolston here.  This week I am pleased to present the “V”, Virginia Sinicki.
Virginia Sinicki hails from Louisiana and her Cajun roots find ways into the humor of the show often.  Through the years, listeners have been part of every aspect of  Virginia’s life, her single years, first marriage, the birth of her Magnolia, divorce and then the romance and marriage with her “Panda.”
Virginia brings a female perspective to the craziness of the KVJ Show, but she also brings a gentle compassion to the work she does within the community.  A long time advocate for the organization Little Smiles she and her radio partners make a difference by creating smiles for children in hospitals, hospices and shelters.
Virginia Sinicki is a welcome wake up and a friend to the community, we are fortunate to have her as part of the south Florida radio family.

Short Notes – Republicans, Stupid Party

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal Speaks In WashingtonLast night  Louisiana Republican Governor, Bobby Jindal gave a speech in Charlotte, NC.  The speech given to the Republican National Committee.

In the speech Jindal layed out his plan for moving the party forward and advised that the Republicans need to “stop being the stupid party” if they want to have a future in American governance.

Bravo to Jindal.  The sooner the Republican Party moves away from the Washington philosophy of do-nothing, oppose everything “leadership” the better they will be.

The Republican Party needs to turn its back on the ignorant and begin embracing Governors like Jindal, Christie, Deal, Haley and others if they want to have any future in the national debate.
