Re: Mike Ilitch dead at 87

Very surprised he made it to 87. When he appeared on stage in 2012 to accept A.L. championship trophy, he looked like he already had one foot in the grave. I felt bad for the man. It was clear he was very frail. It was brave of him to do that considering his appearance. Far from a perfect owner, but...

Re: CMU Sells Flint WCMZ-TV In FCC Spectrum Auction

I wonder how the gross purse compares to expectation on a global scale. Getting back to the Mid-Michigan PBS situation, I wonder what the chances are of WDCQ applying for a digital translator to serve the Flint area? I am guessing the chances of that occurring are very slim. Are translators/repeater...

The media's (and liberals') obsession over Betsy Devos

What an absurd circus.... The Secretary of Education is far from being the most important cabinet position. Yet the media and many on the left (even some centrists) were painting an apocalyptic picture in the event Mrs. Devos received confirmation (which, of course, did finally occur). The fact of t...

Re: Mom Jailed Over Homeschooling Decision?

Virtually all home-schooled folks I've encountered are well-mannered and intelligent. I know of several who performed very well in collegiate endeavors and went on to rewarding careers. I do think there needs to be monitoring of home schooling (i.e. make sure someone is actually giving the child pro...

Re: CMU Sells Flint WCMZ-TV In FCC Spectrum Auction

Opening Bid for the WCMU spectrum was $143,613,000 By the time we got to the end stage, it was down to $14,000,000? Why am I not surprised??? :lol 10% of the FCC's auction value estimate!!! Thanks for sharing that info. Anyone with a functioning brain (i.e probably every person who sees this post o...

Re: Bush Has Legs

It's not so much an urgent priority as it's an opportunity with no reason to wait.
I disagree.

Re: CMU Sells Flint WCMZ-TV In FCC Spectrum Auction

How does the $14 million price tag compare to the FCC's outrageous pre-auction price estimates? Arthur, I would also point out that WCMZ is carried on every cable system in Oakland County, a number of cable systems in Wayne, Livingston and Washtenaw Counties, and on Wide Open West in Macomb County. ...

Re: Bush Has Legs

Pelosi was on one of the Sunday morning talkers this past week. I lasted two minutes before I had to flip the channel in disgust. She claimed Donald Trump nominated someone to the Supreme Court as a "distraction" to take attention away from missteps in other areas. It was an absurd theory on Pelosi'...

Re: Slow board performance??

I just discovered that posting from Tapatalk is even slower than posting directly from the buzzboard domain. Something screwy is going on here. I am going to reach out to my domain host later today to see if they can offer any pointers.

Re: Slow board performance??

Posting speed continues to lag; everything else is working great. I've tried everything - other than upgrading my version of phpBB to the latest version. That will have to be the next step. Apologies for the inconvenience. Everyone will need to simply let the server take 5 to 10 seconds to complete ...

Re: Radio Station Gofer Wrong About Berserkely Riots

Berserkely
I like that!! :8)

Mind if I borrow that term?

For Mr. Reich to suggest the Berkeley protests/riots were staged by conservatives is sheer lunacy. Robert B. Reich is an attention whore. U-C Berkeley is the perfect place for him. So is CNN (sadly).
