Got the pride

Two of the guests on today's show were representing Tucson Pride, the organization that orchestrates "Pride On Parade" (one of two gay pride parades that Tucson has each October) and "Pride In The Desert" (the gay pride festival held each year).

This photo is notable not only for having Tucson Pride President April Moss, but also Daniel Hernandez. Daniel is best known for being Gabrielle Giffords intern on the day of the January 8 shooting in 2011 and is credited for saving Gabby's life by applying pressure to the gunshot wound to her head as well as making sure she didn't choke on blood. These days, he's a member of the Sunnyside School District Board and the reason he was on the show yesterday was because he's the Grand Marshall of this year's Pride On Parade event.

He and I are also a little familiar with each other because he remembers me from my days working in radio in Tucson.

Here we are in my office -- two fabulous and important members of the community, and a dork with amazing hair.

to buy a properly fitting shirt.
