This is going to be a particularly fun show for me.
George Brauchler is the district attorney for Colorado's 18th Judicial District, a district that happens to have caught a disproportionate share of the state's recent death penalty cases.
George prosecuted the Aurora theater shooter, whose name I still won't use in print and do my best not to use on air.
George has announced that he's running for governor.
For the record, I think George is excellent and I consider him a friend, and a thoughtful guy. But we don't agree on everything. And in fact, we don't agree on a couple of rather large issues, including the death penalty which I have come to oppose in recent years.
So George will be joining me at 6:36 AM and sticking around for two segments to debate me on the death penalty, the Lima-Marin case, civil asset forfeiture, and more. AND I'LL TAKE A FEW LISTENERS CALLS AND E-MAIL AND TWITTER QUESTIONS FOR GEORGE AS WELL.
Also: Can a highway be racist?
And on this Tax Day, do you think the tax system is fair? If not, in what way?
Thanks to Citizens for Tax Justice for this:
