“Listening this morning to your fundraising and also to the coverage of Las Vegas and I was shocked to hear one of the commenters say, ‘Well yeah, this is tragic but frankly tragedy happens every day. Come on, people! I will not be listening to your station or contributing.  I thought that was so insensitive.”

Our Eastern Standard show of almost two weeks ago on small town LGBTQ pride events received a number of comments, especially on Twitter. 

For example, this one Jonathan Scott, @jonscott81.  He wrote, “Thank you, @889WEKU NPR, for this educational and entertaining segment about #LGBT equality and fairness in Kentucky.”

Uncle Tyler‏ @good2bsimple  tweeted about a news feature, saying “Lisa Autry did a great piece on KY public pensions, but there was no mention of tax revenue, only cutting benefits #WhatsMissing
