Looking forward to a new week!

It's Sunday afternoon. Easter Sunday. Since the Sandler household is pretty much non-religious (we didn't observe Passover either), today I took my daughter to the Marlins-Mets game. We were cheering on the Mets, and eager as Carlos Delgado came to bat with the Mets up 2-0, with 2 outs at the top of the 9th inning, figuring he'd once again save the day. But, alas, his double and the one run he was able to eek out weren't enough this time.

In case you were wondering, it was ridiculously hot at Dolphins stadium, making me realize that the Marlins do, indeed, need a domed stadium if they ever hope to get fans in the seats. But I still think they should be paying for it, not tax dollars!

I'm getting ready to begin another week on Air America radio. I'll be hosting noon-3 EST all week, starting tomorrow. Since it's the Monday after Easter and Passover, I thought tomorrow would be a great time to talk about the separation of Church and State. We'll do that in the first hour, with Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. I've had the pleasure of interviewing Rev. Lynn in the past, and promise you'll find it fascinating as well.

We'll also take a look at the issue of Homelessness in America, and lots more...

I'm trying to wrap my brain around a few other issues... pirates, taxes and teabagging are among them. If you have any suggestions for guests and topics you'd like me to try to cover this week on Air America, please email me!

In the meantime, I thought you might get a kick out of this misguided youth, who apparently didn't get the "teabagging" memo...
