Our Nightside host, Michael Castner, says 60 Minutes' Mike Wallace ought to fully retire. The interview last night Wallace had with Mitt Romney was interesting, b/c of the questions he asked. The "did you have premarital sex with your wife" was strange. I know it's because of Romney's LDS values, but still, I don't think any other presidential hopeful has been asked that question.

Right now my fellow reporter Tom Callan is trying to reach anyone at Time Magazine to reach the author of the upcoming cover story on Mitt Romney. It's hard to reach anyone at the big papers/magazines/networks. They often lose you in a sea of operators, voice mail, etc. But still, 60 Minutes, Time -- that's a big national spotlight for Romney. I know he's now from Massachusetts and all, but many Utahns feel like he's one of their own.

Now to radio -- I was in California this weekend for a vacation, and I love to tune in to newsradio stations when I'm in other cities. I listened to KNX 1070 out of Las Angeles, and KOGO 600 in San Diego. They were talking a lot about the big fires out there. But it was also fun to see how they do things. KNX for example also has traffic every ten minutes like we do, except theirs is on the fives. We have Andy Farnsworth as our eye in the sky; it sounded like they had two guys in choppers or planes around their huge freeway system. You think traffic here is bad. Saturday's talk shows were fun, too. There was a money hour, a cooking show, and a computers/cameras/technology guy.

As for other musings, In-N-Out Burger rules. Can we get one in Salt Lake? Say around 3300 S State Street?
