It’s been a busy week for me. Meetings. Appointments. Interviews. Play dates. The list goes on and on. How are you doing so far this week? I hope its productive.
Well, let’s cut to the chase and get to what happened during Saturday’s radio show…
Café Talk: If there was one thing that you could change about the Girls Talk movie, what would it be?
1st Hour– This Day In History and Top News
“This Day In History” included…
*A noteworthy mention of Friday, July 28th’s Google Doodle on the search engine’s homepage–the 100th Anniversary of the Silent Parade. One-hundred years ago today, nearly 10,000 African Americans walked in complete silence down New York City’s Fifth Avenue in protest against lynching and racial violence in the years after slavery was abolished. The march was organized by the NAACP. To learn more about the Parade and the events that led up to it, check out Google’s interactive collaboration with the Equal Justice initiative.
*1932 : World War I Vets who are starving like many others due to the great depression march on Washington demanding that the bonus payment they are due to receive in 1945 is paid out early. Legislators refuse their requests so 20,000 vets set up camp in Washington trying to put further pressure on the government;
*1958 : NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is created by the National Aeronautics and Space Act to make sure America will win the space race;
*1983 “Friday Night Videos” premieres on NBC TV.
The Top News segment included the news about U.S. Senator McCain unexpected opposition of the Obamacare repeal measure; and, the Illinois public school saga…Day 3 of the special session that Governor Rauner called ended without a plan to overhaul how Illinois funds public schools. Will all of Illinois school districts start on time? Stay tuned.
Heidi Stevens, a columnist for the Chicago Tribune, joined me for Cafe Talk. She wrote about the one thing in the movie that slightly rubbed her the wrong way. She shared that she thought the treatment of the character, Simone, who is mistress to the main character’s husband, was a bit rough and dehumanizing. Brianna who was in studio, chimed in with the notion that Simone asked for the mistreatment with her disrespectful behavior towards the wife. I shared that the one thing that I would change is the overuse of the “f” and “mf” bombs. Some chimed in via social media as well. Go to www.marilynscafesociety.com for audio.
The “What’s trending on social media” segment was moved to the second hour due to the tremendous response to and discussion about Cafe Talk.
