Healthcare will most likely be a disaster. To survive Y2K hospitals, clinics, etc will have to hire many more workers to handle the load that is currently automated.

Tony Brown is a big "GI", and has done a lot to try to spur Y2K awareness in the African-American community. His website is:

I'm white as rice, and Tony Brown has been a big help to me, too, with Y2k. His show is so good it's usually interesting to everyone, even when it's focused primarily on black issues. He's for economic self-reliance and strength for black people (not socialist handouts), which makes him a conservative, IMHO.

For those who might like to hear Tony Brown weekly, he has a 2 hour radio program on WLA, a large Chiago station. It is on from l0-12 noon Chicago time (CDT). Altho he covers other topics of interest, he shows a lot of interest in Y2K every week. He is great!!!!!

To the credit of WLS, another talk show hostess, Deborah Rowe, strictly devotes the last hour of her last program of the month to discuss all aspects of Y2K. She is on from 9a to 12 noon, each Sunday (Chicago time, again). She has an assortment of different guests, from doomers to Polly govt. people. She will be on tomorrow, with the last hour devoted to Y2K. Deb does a wonderful show, too.

Interesting....these are both (excellent) black talk show hosts, and the only people I know of (other than the Art Bell show) on the air waves that openly discuss Y2K.

'Scuse me, please....I made a big type, even tho I thot I checked it for errors---the Chicago station is WLS, NOT WLA. Sorry!

Thanks for the info.

JoAnn...by chance are the Chicago programs on shortwave, if so do you know the frequency?

You can listen to these programs via realaudio. Go to the WLS website at wlsam.com.

So what you're saying is that you're as white as brown rice?

I still have to get more of the short grain variety to mix with the 50 lbs. of white rice that I already have. I don't want to get stopped-up after rollover.

There was a survey a few months ago reporting that a higher percentage of blacks were stocking up for Y2K than whites. One possile reason for it is Tony. He's got a really great TV show. No nonsense, just good interviews.
