Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Shades of Kathy Randall and Al Fogleman! I didn't realize cocaine at KOLD was still a thing!

The 80s were a lot of fun, but at some point one should grow up and move on to more respectable, legal avenues of debauchery, such as a good single malt.

What a couple of idiots! I enjoyed Som's reporting over the years but apparently he knew where the 8-balls were buried. I have a hard time believing his wife is only 26...she's had 4 pregnancies in the past few years; that is the MO of a 30+ woman trying to conceive before it's too late, not the behavior of a 20-something.

By the way, Kathy R passed away in 2010

Re: “Vazquez Departs KVOA; Sources Say She Was Involved in a Shoplifting Incident

I remember when she was a young reporter working for KOLD in the early 80's and she became pregnant. She wasn't married at the time and KOLD fired her. I thought it was great that KVOA picked her up as she is a solid reporter and has been a tremendous asset to the community. I hope all is well and she comes through this.

Re: “Truth and Consequences

Jesus, what a rant, GV. Every angry Teapublican I know/meet seems to be the type of person who was ignorant enough to be duped into buying the Medicare Advantage "give-up-your-paid-into-Medicare-in-exchange-for-being-soaked-by-private-insurers" plan or ignorant enough to think a stick-n-stucco "custom" home whose "value" had quadrupled in the past 2 years would continue to appreciate.

Why don't you take a little responsibility for your own lack of research and/or "huckster" mentality? This country is being RUINED by people who didn't pay attention to economics, didn't plan and don't seem to realize their greatly reduced standard of living is largely due to their own complacent insularity coupled by the failed policies of the Republican "trickle-down-Contract-with-America" b.s we've been subjected to for the last 30 years.

Re: “Getting the Ax

People give the unions a bad rap, but this is exactly the type of reprehensible employer behavior from which the unions protect their members.

My father was a skilled carpenter who, in the 50's and 60s, was denied employment for being "too old" (he was in his thirties). When he found work, he was also occasionally paid with bouncing checks or was told to go to the local store and buy what he needed on his employer's account in lieu of a paycheck. Life finally stabilized and we had a normal middle-class existence after he joined the carpenter's union.

We are sliding back into the 1900's "robber baron" type of society. All of the safeguards put in place to protect American workers have been dismantled in the past few decades. We need to wake up and demand that these safeguards be restored.

Sadly, it may be too late.
