We're going to add some more spice to our new current affairs show," Straight Talk".
Each week, we'll conclude our show with commentary from Lars Larson representing right of center; and Oregonian columnist, David Sarasohn, from left of center.
This week their topic is the 175 million dollar Oregon stimulus package.
Was it a good idea? How much good will it do?
We appreciate Lars and David contributing to the exchange of ideas on "Straight Talk".
You may not agree with their opinions, but here's a place where you can let us know what you think. Just leave your comments below.
People have asked me who will go first, David or Lars? How's this for fairness? We'll switch it up each week.
This week our guests on "Straight Talk" are Oregon Democrat, Representative Larry Galizio.
Galizio is the co-chair of the House ways and means capital construction subcommittee.
Senate Republican leader, Ted Ferrioli from John Day will also join us.
A third guest, Oregon State University economist, Patrick Emerson will offer his perspective on the state of Oregon's economy.
We'll ask the Oregon lawmakers how they plan to fill the 800-million dollar budget hole facing the state, and how much the Oregon stimulus plan will really help our economy.
Let me know if you have questions for our guests.
Join us Saturday night at 7pm for "Straight Talk".
Let's keep talking. David and Lars should give us even more to talk about.
