Today as I was driving home from work, I turned my car radio to WTAM/1100 just to see what the talk of the day was. Mike Trivisonno, the antihero of this blog, was on and he was talking about the effects of slashing the funding of Ohio libraries. A soundbite , people chanting "save Ohio libraries" was played over and over. Triv said that he hoped that libraries would close because it was about time things were taken away from the poor. Maybe if you'd go to a library once in awhile Triv, check out a book and read it, you might have a clue, you moron!
I realize that this is an act and he's just a mouthpiece for cheap channel, but I think that most of the banter that I heard coming from that waste of frequency thisafternoon was in extremely poor taste.
Many people, regardless of social status, use public libraries. Quite a few use them to hone their skills, and that is very necessary in these times of mass unemployment. I figure that his current lackeys should use their closest library to their advantage, seeing how loyal their fearless leader is. Ask Kim Mihilik, Paul Rado, and Marty Allen. Only one person from that show left relatively unscathed, and she left to marry the hitting coach of the Cleveland Indians. Any listener can tell you how much Triv likes to lick the boots of Bob Dibiaso, Mark Shapiro, and Eric Wedge.
Ahh, what do I know? I'm just a screwball moron blogger. I might not know a lot about broadcasting, but I do know about how to treat other people.
