This afternoon I ventured into a live taping of Shannyn Moore’s TV talk show “Moore Up North.” I was joined on the panel by Senator Lesl McGuire, and Representative Charisse Millett. I think we were the only Republicans in the room. The TV taping was at an upstairs room at Bernie’s Bungalow downtown. The Bungalow is actually a barroom. Can’t fool me. But it's a nice barroom.

Shannyn Moore, “Just a Girl from Homer,” is an excellent interviewer who adds spice to the dialogue with some very humorous comments. I think Shannon has great potential for national TV. But what do I know. I’m “Just a boy from East Los Angeles.”

Shannyn is a “progressive” or “liberal” (whatever the term du jour is), who claims she is “Painting a Red State BLUE, one stroke at a time.” The major discussion items on the show were the Parental Notification Initiative for an abortion, overseas legislative travel, and Rep. Keller’s bill that would require random drug testing for state welfare assistance.

It was an interesting show, with provocative but fair questions. Rather than comment on how each of us did, check out the show scheduled to air this Saturday at 4:00PM on Anchorage Channel 5 KYES. It will probably also be streamed on the Internet.

After the taping, I left the TV venue at the barroom for a HALO Community Council meeting at the Holy Spirit Retreat House. How about that for covering all the bases?
