"Sometimes our best isn't good enough. Sometimes we must do what is necessary" Winston Churchill
The exceedingly bright Terry Danner writes about AirAmerica this morning on a Portland broadcasting board.  Take note.

"I'd be willing to bet that more stations leap onto the AirAmerica bandwagon in the next 2 months than jumped on the Disco format after KTU went from worst to first (sometime in the 19th century I believe). It's hard to make money with an AM signal -- unless you own either the conservative talk or the sports talk franchise for the market.... the number 2 or number 3 stations in those formats usually flounder. Now there's another big winner for the AM band to embrace... liberal talk... and I'm betting that either a) Clear Channel will buy Air America to bail it out of its financial troubles OR b) Another group or network like Westwood One will buy them (And remember, everyone said that Rush would fail as soon as Bush got into office and he didn't have Clinton to beat up any more. Didn't happen. And Air America will not fail when/if Kerry gets into office either. Both sides of the political spectrum will finally get a strong voice.)"
