The Matt McNeil Show – December 5, 2022

Hour 1: Getting into the holiday spirit with a trip to the MOA. Big sports moments from the weekend. Sesame Street founding cast member Bob McGrath passes away at age 90. Matt returns to his old Catholic Church for a week and shares his thoughts. Why unifying the country is difficult when one portion of the population only wants to “own the libs,” especially with social media. Financial struggles of the MNGOP.

Hour 2: New Minnesota snowplow names from MNDOT. The AM950 calendars and posters are in! Inline skating is expensive at US Bank Stadium (much more so than the old Metrodome). The Star Tribune reports the city council of Prinsburg in western MN has unanimously shelved a proposed ordinance that would have allowed its residents to sue abortion providers. The radical right wing majority on the SCOTUS appears sympathetic to a web designer who refuses to serve gay weddings. Plus the SCOTUS might allow even more radical gerrymandering. Seven US Senators (including Minnesota’s Tina Smith) ask President Biden to grant clemency to Leonard Peltier.
