Speaking French on the Soundshore: Thursday, 11am

MyRye.com friends Christian Falcone and Mark Lungariello of The Rye Sound Shore Review will be speaking French this Thursday, September 16, 2010 from 11-12 on WVOX 1460 AM.

That's Rye Mayor Doug French. The Sound Shore duo will will put our city's chairman of the board on the proverbial hot seat.

If you want to suggest any questions that should be put to Mayor French, Falcone and Lungariello want your suggestions. Leave your questions as a comment below.

You can listen to the interview live.


  1. I suggest Mr. French might read this short essay by someone I know and contemplate soon applying the clean broom. Vigorously.

    “Delaware is no fluke, neither was Nevada earlier in the year, nor was Carl Paladino’s victory in the Republican primary for governor in New York last night.”

    This essay is by someone you know? Doug Schoen wrote it. You know Doug Schoen? So do I. I worked out of his and Mark Penn’s office in the Spring of 1985 in my first full time campaign job in NYC working for Ed Koch.

    I don’t expect you to apologize for your vehement insistence, during last year’s Mayor and Council races, that Steve Otis was ghost writing my copy. If you check with Doug Schoen, however, you’ll find that my roots in Democratic politics are broad and deep.

    I’ll just smile to myself knowing you and the others have figured it out by now and are chagrined – although you’ll never admit it. : )
    (that little emoticon is a smile)

  3. OK Charmian so you might enjoy this one – as might our fellow readers here –

    MAD AS HELL: How the Tea Party Movement Is Fundamentally Remaking Our Two-Party System, an authoritative guide to the new American populism that gave rise to the Tea Party movement by Scott Rasmussen and Doug Schoen.


  4. What I love about the Tea Party is that it is truly a grass-roots effort, without the helping hand of a billionaire like Soros. Their message is simple – we’re Taxed Enough Already, and it is obviously striking a chord with most of America, who are fed up with politicians who promise the world and don’t deliver, and who conveniently fail to tell their voters where the funds are going to come from. (When was the last time you heard a politician say “if elected, I promise to use your money wisely”?)

    What concerns me about the Tea Party is that they are not addressing any issue save taxes. Where do they stand on foreign policy? What are they thinking about illegal immigration? Are spending too much or too little on defense, social services, etc.

    In reality, they are not really a true party, but merely a collective (and powerful) voice for taxpayers to send a clear and unequivacol signal to Washington and state capitals that government needs to get a lot more efficient with regard to spending. They cannot continue to follow the strategy of tax-and-spend and expect to have the support of the middle-class voters.

    Looking forward to some interesting reading, Ted!
