KNIA/KRLS would like your opinion, please. Yesterday we asked if you thought funding for federal disaster relief should be tied to cuts elsewhere in the budget. Fifty-one percent of respondents said no, forty-seven percent said yes and three percent had no opinion. The Senate voted yesterday on a seven week extension of funding for federal agencies, including FEMA. The house is likely to vote later in the week. Government funding otherwise shuts down this Friday. In today’s poll A recent study shows that young people are becoming increasingly indifferent to racist and sexist slurs, encountered primarily on-line. Have you noticed this?
