Twouble With Twitters

Today's show on Air America Radio covered a lot of territory. Starting with some of the news of the day, and my admission that economics was never my specialty! So tomorrow we'll speak with an economist who can put the new treasury plan into plain English for us.

We talked about an issue that's facing South Florida today- and has been an issue in other US cities too. Today, the Miami-Dade County Commission will have the final say on whether or not taxpayer dollars will be used to build a new baseball stadium for the Marlins. Right now, at 3:40pm, there's no answer yet. But there's plenty of drama. Read the latest account here, from the Miami Herald. I'll update you here when there's a decision.

We moved on in hour three to a discussion on how our world has changed with the rise of the internet. I spoke with Chris Willman - pop culture journalist, former Entertainment Weekly music critic -- on his recent HuffPo piece "Facebook's Lousy Facelift" along with Twitter and more....

And then we turned to my newest internet discovery, Jonathan Mann, of, where he posts a song a day. He also offers custom songs to fans for a nominal fee. I commissioned him to write me a theme song for the show. We'll see what he comes up with.

Do you tweet? I'm still trying to get the hang of it, but you can follow me, if you wish, here. But first, watch this...
