Just the other day, Ahmed Tharwat asked me to be on his cable TV show to discuss the disclosure statement on the bottom of my emails – which is below. without any further ado, here it is!

And, here’s that disclosure statement, that got the conversation started…..

Did The Twinks Just Kill A Vikings Stadium Deal?

On February 17, 2011, in Sports, by tommy

Went out during this heatwave to pick up the dead-tree copy o’ my Strib (yes, I recently re-subscribed; the Strib has been getting better despite the occasional water-carrying by Kevin Diaz) and read this, on the front page:

Twins OK exclusive cable deal with FS North

Viewers who don’t have cable or satellite will be able to watch only eight scheduled games.

By NEAL JUSTIN, Star Tribune

About that “Viewers that don’t have cable…” deal? Further into the story:

Add in cable subscribers who only pay for the basic tier, which FSN is not part of, and you’ve got a lot of fans crying foul.

Yep! Yours truly (and my fixed-income, senior-citizen mother) are included in that group o’ fans. Why?

Because, as residents of Hennepin County, we have/are/and will continue to pony up taxpayer dough for that fancy new palace where the Twinks play.

And now we’re going to have to pay more to watch the Twinks on TV (we only have basic cable) in a stadium we already have/are/will continue to pay for?

At the same time the Twinks decided to screw them that bought ‘em a dance floor, the Vikings are “negotiating” with Ramsey County for a new palace.

Say, Wilf? Thanks to what the Twinks just did, good luck with that.

Two Putt’s Take On The Mid-Terms

On November 11, 2010, in Candidates, Media, Videos, by tommy

The following was filmed on November 3d, 2010 – the afternoon after the 2010 Mid-Term Elections for the “Democratic Visions” cable access TV program – produced by the Senate District 42 DFL.

Democratic Visions ON CABLE
Comcast Channel 15 – Hopkins, Minnetonka, Edina, Richfield and Eden Prairie Sundays at 9 p.m. and Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m.

Bloomington Cable Channel 16 – on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m., Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m.

With the DFL State Convention in Duluth only a week away, I’d like to remind our gentle readers about“Democratic Visions” and some of the guest we’ve had on; many of which will be in Duluth. The program airs in Hopkins, Minnetonka, Edina, Richfield and Eden Prairie on Sundays at 9:00 pm and Wednesdays at 5:30 pm on Channel 15; I’m the Assistant to the Ass’t Caddy Master, and Chief Range Ball Picker Executive Producer.

We’ve had many of the Gubernatorial Candidates on the show; from Steve Kelley to Tom Rukavina and RT Rybak and Matt Entenza and Mark Dayton and John Marty here and here and Paul Thissen. We’ve asked them all; for some, scheduling just never permitted.

For a preview of the next Democratic Visions – due to premier this Sunday – featuring Senator John Marty (again!), link here.

So as people consider who to support for Governor, especially the 45% (+/-) of Uncommitted Delegates, take a look at ALL of the candidates above. The quick link to Democratic Visions is here.

As Senate District Conventions are over, and we head into Congressional District Conventions, followed by the DFL State Convention, I thought this would be a good opportunity to remind readers of the Cable Access TV program produced by volunteers in DFL SD-42, “Democratic Visions”. The program airs in Hopkins, Minnetonka, Edina, Richfield and Eden Prairie on Sundays at 9:00 pm and Wednesdays at 5:30 pm on Channel 15; I’m the Assistant to the Ass’t Caddy Master, and Chief Range Ball Picker Executive Producer.

We’ve had some great guests on the show, from Minnetonka Council Member Amber Greves to Senator Al Franken (and, Franni, too!). A particularly riveting guest was State Public Defender John Stuart, discussing the challenges confronting Minnesota’s court system prompted by cuts to the number of public defenders; another segment honored the 10th anniversary of the death of state legislator Willard Munger, Minnesota’s “Mr. Environment.”

And we’ve had many of the Gubernatorial Candidates on the show; from Steve Kelley to Tom Rukavina and RT Rybak and Matt Entenza and Mark Dayton and John Marty here and here and Paul Thissen. We’ve asked them all; for some, scheduling just never permitted.

So as people consider who to support for Governor, especially the 45% (+/-) of Uncommitted Delegates, take a look at ALL of the candidates above. The quick link to Democratic Visions is here.

The new show starts tomorrow; it features State Auditor Rebecca Otto, Minnetonka City Council Member James Hiller, and yours truly, the ol’ TwoPutter. YouTubes of that new show are below the fold; let’s look!!!
