Congressional Chatting with John Yarmuth and BIG deals with Larry Bisig

At work, U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth

Rusty’s 50th show is, of course, a good one.

I stopped in at Congressman John Yarmuth’soffice downtown and found him working on his TV. He claimed he was trying to find MSNBC, but an episode of Tosh.O was playing on the Comedy Channel. In our talk, we covered the differences between his jobs as a columnist and a Congressman. Plus, I asked about his influence on his son’s purchase of LEO Weekly, and asked him if he really likes the job. Larry Bisig is a creator — he’s the man behind the Water Tower concert series that I attend every year, and was the first to think of broadcasting high school sports on local radio here. We talked about his company and his political activities and aspirations.

In the news, Rusty’s take on the Mayor’s proposed LG&E tax hike is that, duh, it’s not going to be popular with citizens, and the Metro Council is split on the topic. New bike lanes are causing some controversy in town, and escalating battles between motorists and cyclists. There’s a new soccer team in town, and this week is the Vault in the Ville. I went to see the Book of Mormon at the Kentucky Center, and with Father’s Day coming up, I talk about my golf outing with two of my three sons.

Thanks for downloading the 50th episode of the Rusty Satellite Show.
