- Will Congress pass a debt limit increase?
- How will the president's State of the Union promise to use more Executive Orders play out?

Back in my days as a City Hall reporter, one of my very favorite things to do was the Comcast Citydesk Newshour show on local cable. Once a week, I’d get to chat live about politics and City Hall with some of The City’s top reporters, editorial writers and columnists. I was always rushing down to the TV studio in the Mission from my downtown office at The Examiner, and sometimes I’d arrive just in time to sneak in off camera and get miked up while show host Barbara Taylor was doing the… Continue

Yesterday many television stations made the switch over to Digital TV, even though the Federal Gov’t extended the deadline. Although I believe we are due for new and improved ways for technologies, especially TV and Radio. I feel bad for those under served areas/communities that still depend on an analog antenna and were not able to receive their converter box. Mostly I will miss the local CBS station being able to broadcast analog to the radio on the lower 87.x channels. I liked being able to… Continue
