Ah, for the good old days when activists used to misguidedly attack the transmission towers of PG & E! Say, boys, for good old times' sake, take KFI down, would you?

Taking stock of the number of racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic --oh, let's just call it plain ol' stupid-- comments KFI has aired, the FCC should have fined them enough by now to fund all the cuts to social programs cut in the federal budget. It would be a good deal more satsifying and empowering were we to shut KFI down via the legal channels... like that's gonna happen during this administration...
