Radio Days

by Maggie Sefton


I've done several radio interviews over the last few years, usually talking about one of the Kelly Flynn Knitting mysteries.  I always enjoyed them.  They never lasted very long, only a few minutes, and you  got to be at your home, sitting in your sweats or jammies or whatever, talking on your own landline telephone.  With radio, there's no camera, so no one can see you.  You can totally relax and talk to the radio station program host and answer questions.  Cozy and comfortable.

Well, tomorrow, Tuesday, August 21st--EARLY Tuesday morning--I will be doing over 20 radio interviews with stations that are located all over the U.S.  From Seattle, WA to Hartford, CT.  In fact, I may be doing an interview as you're reading this blog post.  The interviews start a little after 7:00am Eastern Time and go on for five hours.  Yes, there are breaks in between, which is a very good thing, especially for someone like me who drinks a LOT of hot tea.  :)

The tricky part for me is--I live in Colorado which is on Mountain Time.  So--7:00am ET becomes 5:00am MT.  Yikes!   I plan to set my alarm for 4:30amMT to make sure I'm up and ready to go--provided I've got plenty of hot tea ready.  I also have several different breakfast items that I can quickly microwave during those little breaks.  Plus, make more tea.  :)  The dogs will be sleeping in that  morning.

My website has a list of all the radio stations that are doing the interviews.  In addition to Seattle and Hartford, there's Norfolk, VA area, Little Falls, MN area, Orlando, FL area, Cincinnati, OH area, Carbondale, IL area, St. Louis, MO area, Corpus Christi, TX area--and several more.   So, check it out.  You'll find the list on the Molly Malone Suspense mysteries website under "Appearances."  And, yes--I'll be talking about the first in my new suspense series, DEADLY POLITICS, set in Washington, DC.

I'll also be doing a few more interviews later this week and next:  Thursday, August 23rd:  Des Moines & Minneapolis.  Friday, August 24:  Middletown/Poughkeepsie, NY.  Tuesday, August 28th:  Milwaukee.    So--check out the list folks.  I may show up on a radio station near your town.  :)

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Tens of millions of American men have had their lives completely destroyed by American women through the following crimes:

1. False rape accusations (it has been proven that up to 80 percent of rape accusations are FALSE)

2. False domestic violence (DV) charges (same as above)

3. False sexual harassment charges (men are now afraid to even talk to women in the office because all it takes is one woman to make up a false sexual harassment charge and then the man's career is finished)

4. Financial destruction of men in divorce courts through alimony and support payments (women get up to 95 percent of their ex-husband's income and savings, as well as the house, car, etc)

5. Emotional destruction of men by ex-wives who have stolen their children from them and forbidden the fathers from having custody or contact with their own children

6. Divorced dads who commit suicide as a result

99.9 percent of American and western women are liars, hypocrities, and criminals, who support women committing crimes against men. Women refuse to condemn their fellow women who destroy men's lives. Silence means consent. Therefore, American women support and enjoy destroying men's lives and causing men to commit suicide. Apparently, American women think it is okay to be a criminal, just as long as you are a woman. Therefore, is it any surprise that a huge percent of American men no longer want anything to do with American women, other than using them for easy sex and then throwing them away?

A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

-25 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs for mental illnesses.
-25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
-85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
-70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
-The majority of child molestation, child abuse, and child murder in America is done by WOMEN.

Over 50 percent of American women are single, without a boyfriend or husband; so the fact is most American men no longer want to marry American women. Let these worthless American women grow old living alone with their 10 cats.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
