Where Do You Go For Emergency Info?
Mark Kassof has once again done the heavy lifting for us and his research indicates it’s not what it used to be.
There was a day when everyone turned to radio in times of emergency but that’s changed.
Mark Kassof & Co. says that radio ranks #3 as the source of information 18-64 consumers would turn to first in the event of a local emergency.
Only 17% percent select “AM or FM radio” as the place where they would go first for information about “emergencies that could affect a local community – like severe weather, flooding or a power outage.
TV ranks #1 at 37%,
#2 is the Internet at 25%.

It’s a story getting plenty of talk and your older demo’s may take issue with it.
A new poll just released by the Pew Research Center reports that 61 percent of young Republicans favor same-sex marriage.
Only 35 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaners under 30 are opposed.
Meanwhile, about 70 percent of independents and Democrats under 30 support letting gays and lesbians tie the knot.
It’s only a matter of time as it seems support for gay marriage is far more generational than partisan.

‘The New Yorker’ is being quoted a lot today as they publish a story that is making headlines around the country.
It’s all about the mass killings at Newtown, CT., in December, 2012.
Depending on whom you ask, there were twenty-six, twenty-seven, or twenty-eight victims in Newtown.
It’s twenty-six if you count only those who were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School; twenty-seven if you include Nancy Lanza; twenty-eight if you judge Adam’s suicide a loss.
There are twenty-six stars on the local firehouse roof.
On the anniversary of the shootings, President Obama referred to “six dedicated school workers and twenty beautiful children” who had been killed, and the governor of Connecticut asked churches to ring their bells twenty-six times.
