Ladies and Gentlemen, yours truly – the ol’ TwoPutter – is Guest Hosting this afternoon’s Tuesday Edition of “Quick On The UpTake” from 5:00 to 6:00pm on AM-950 KTNF, The Voice of Minnesota. Mike McIntee is taking some well-earned time time off. I’ll be joined in studio by the intrepid political analyst, Dusty Trice!

In addition to talking about important news, we’ll take a break from politics to have an in-studio conversation with one of Minnesota’s Citizen-Soldiers – Major Rickert – which we feel is fitting as a tribute to those who have worn the uniform on this day after Memorial Day. Major Rickert will be talking, among other things, about the recent alert that as many as 2,700 fellow Minnesotans may be deployed to Iraq and Kuwait as that war winds down.

We’ll also be joined in-studio by candidate for congress in Minnesota’s 2nd District, Dan Powers.

Mike is actually taking this week off; tomorrow MPP’s very own The Big E will be behind the microphone, and I’ll be covering again on Thursday and Friday!

While I’ll let The Big E write about what he’s got planned for tomorrow’s show, I do want to let folk know what we’ve got for Thursday – you’re not going to want to miss it!

We’re going to be interviewing (again!) best-selling author and weekly opinion columnist for the Wall Street Journal, Thomas Frank! Thomas Frank’s latest book is The Wrecking Crew – How Conservatives Ruined Government, Enriched Themselves, And Beggared The Nation”. Mr. Frank is a great conversationalist, and we’re lucky to have him on for a whole half-hour!!!

If you need a copy of “The Wrecking Crew”, AM950 sponsor CommonGoodBooks.com has it! They also have Frank’s other books, like “What’s The Matter With Kansas?”. Oh – and tell ‘em TwoPutt sent ya, will ya?

So tune in your radio today to AM-950, or listen live on your computer, here.
