The Worm Turns

Radio Heartland is presenting the sold out Colin Hay - Peter Mulvey concert at the Cedar Cultural Center on Friday, May 1st.
We have 4 pairs of tickets to give away to Radio Heartland listeners.
There are some enjoyable rules to read, of course.
Enter your name between now and 1 p.m.this afternoon.
Give it a try, and good luck!

Here's a short news poem in honor of the newly transformed and redefined Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter, a public servant who valiantly pushed Swine Flu off the front page for a moment, at least, and has now made certain that Minnesota will have only one Senator through the summer months.


We may declare ourselves to be
Of red or blue in hue.
But every one of us is free
To pull a Switcheroo.

It's not a lengthy leap to take.
Nor is it hard to do.
You simply change the points you make
And presto! Switcheroo!

Instead of guns, it's rights for gays.
Bank rules and regs? Too few!
And taxes aren't that hard to raise
On rich folks. Switcheroo!

The world and politics will spin,
They're turning like a screw.
You once were out. Today you're in.
Tomorrow? Switcheroo!

Feel free to add a verse or two, or tell us about a time you pulled a Switcheroo, political or otherwise.
