Stimulus Roulette

Randall Morton drops by and gives our listeners a rundown of what's in store this year at the Progressive Forum, including Larry Wilmore from the "The Daily Show" who will be here this February 25"th. For tickets and information, including upcoming speakers this year, see Progressive Forum Website.

Leo also notes that Houston will finally be having an official Earth Day event at Discovery Green and encourages you to keep Saturday Aprill 11th marked on your calendar. Earth Day Houston will be presented by GHASP/Mothers for Clean Air at Jones Lawn, Andrea & Bill White Promenade, Anheuser Busch Stage and Fondren Performance Space from 9:00am to 6:00pm. See Discovery Green Event Calendar website for more information (search for April 11, 2009). Admission is Free.

Today's show covers the economic crisis, which Leo declares is not a financial crisis but instead an investment crisis. He is uncertain whether this stimulus package will result in projects that will last a hundred years and provide returns or simply be a fiasco. But at least the Country is on track to grappling with investment decisions with a discipline that is being forced on us by the realities of economics. We do some news and take your calls.

Hey Leo,

I don't always agree with you, but I love your show. I thought you might be interested in covering the "highway to nowhere" TXDOT is proposing to use stimulus money for. See a picture here


Also, thanks for the recycling campaign. My biggest irk is that in a given week my recycling is twice as much as my garbage and all I have is a little green bin. I bought a big bin for my recycling, but the guys won't pick it up. How can anybody take recycling seriously when you're not even expected to really recycle as much as you can? Just here and there you'd toss something in a bin to sort of feel like you're trying. No glory in that. Is it possible to use stimulus money to buy us garbage bin sized recycling, and to relegate the ordinary trash into awkward green bins?

Anyway, thanks,
