**Essential Follow-up to my Previous Post**

Before posting my previous comment, I had searched /Google/ for "'eric salgado' site:wnyc.org" and no results were returned. Just afterward, however, I decided to try the search function on wnyc.org itself and sure enough, I saw that Rev. Salgado had in fact been a guest on the BL Show on April 9th.
( http://www.wnyc.org/shows/bl/2013/apr/09/erick-salgado-candidate-mayor/ )

I also realized that I had been misspelling 'Erick', omitting the 'k'. When I subsequently tried the same search on Google but with the correctly-spelled name, the results returned included not only the
aforementioned BL segment but also the proper, official web site for Rev. Salgado's campaign, which I had previously been unable to find:

Eric Salgado, an Evangelical pastor, is another candidate for mayor running in the Democrat primary.
(Unfortunately, what he has for a web site appears appallingly abysmal and lacking of information:
https://sites.google.com/site/salgadoformayor/ )

Will Rev. Salgado be on the show? Has he even been mentioned?

Orthodox Jewish Rabbis have declared that it is "mitzvah" to support and vote for Salgado:

Regarding Anthony Weiner, was he not one of the more reflexively "hawkishly" "pro-Israel" members of congress?

I contend that this should be mentioned when describing Weiner as "one of the most liberal" members of congress.

So even today, a woman candidate's revelations of bulimia & alcoholism are covered in a women's fashion magazine & in the style section of newspapers? If a male candidate made similar statements, would the coverage be in "Esquire" or "GQ" & in...hmm, what *is* the equivalent of the style section for men? Oh, right--that would be the front section of the paper.
