Hey Joe, you washed up old lout! Nice nostalgic column. I'll be by to see you at your hate radio booth this week and we can talk over the good old days, when you actually seemed to have something to say.

"The rhythm of the season is the one thing they can't change at the Fair, and with the rhythm of the season come the habits and rituals and mysteries that conspire to make the Fair experience unchangeable in spite of itself."

No matter how flowery your prose, you
are a rinky dink columnist with a rinky dink radio show. Trying to reinvent yourself? Its way too late.

Joe grew up and left liberalism where it belongs with the other fairy tales people believe in when they are brainwashed by the media and educational system and then they get into the real world and see it for what it is- a mental disorder

That's all liberalism is anti American hate class envy and political correctness- a true mental disorder. 86528

Joe, there's a reason it's called the "Fair", it's never good or great, just fair.

Joe quit having something to say when he started telling his fans what they wanted to hear.

Hey Goof- four:
What the heck is the significance of "86528?" Is that nutzo code for 'here come the black helicopters?' You sound pretty anti-American from where I sit, which is right in the middle of the mainstream. Rock-on Hate Radio!!

Maybe the fearless Radtard can start a radio show of his own, to dislodge Soucherey from his afternoon success? No? Content to wile away your time in your basement apartment?

Figure, with ratings like these, the tards would be appearing?

AFTERNOON DRIVE (3–7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Adults 25–54)

1..........KQRS..........8.3
2..........KS95..........6.6
3..........K102..........6.3
4..........Cities 97..........6.2
5..........AM 1500..........5.0
(tie).........KDWB..........5. 0
(tie).........KFAN..........5. 0
8..........93X..........4.7
9..........JACK..........4.0
10..........KTLK..........3.5
11..........KOOL108..........3 .4
12..........FM107..........3.3
13..........WLTE..........3.0
14..........WCCO..........2.9
15..........The Beat..........2.1

Hmmm. Jason is giving Joe a run for his money. Dumbest thing KSTP ever did was letting Jason Lewis get away.

I wonder how high Soucherey's rating are, counting everybody? Can't imagine the over 55's are tuning into KQ to hear the same playlist that hasn't changed since 1969.

Where's Airhead America? Oh, counting just women, they manage to just nudge the meter off zero with a 1.0.

Heh. What bothers the howling babboon crowd, is that there isn't a single thing they can do about it.

I thought it was a nice column. He's pointing out the simple things to enjoy at the fair. Whatever you like of it or take from it. There's something there for everyone! Visit what you want to see.
And for "Politician Dolls," why can't he write a nice column? Do you want him to write something else?

I'm sure you are a nice person, but
I was shocked to see him not saying something sarcastic or mean spirited. He is not a nice man and he uses his soapbox to hurt people he doesn't like. What goes around...

I can't believe how mean he is when he gets those 4H types on. Unbelievable. And awfully mean when that Majorie Johnson is on. Absolute meanie.

Heh. What's the matter? Your airhead america show not even crack the bottom of the ratings?

Or is your name Nick Coleman, and you're still bitter about no one wanting to listen to you?

Allison, I rest my case. Here's one of Joe's avid listeners- sarcastic and mean spirited. MNHawk- You one of those guys Jesse Ventura calls a chickenhawk? You know a tough guy who talks big but failed short arm inspection unless they used a microscope?
