What's on The Tom Sullivan Show 6-17-09

"Inappropriate Conduct"
Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are questioning why President Obama fired Inspector General Gerald Walpin.  Was the firing pure politics, or is there more to the story?  Obama said Walpin engaged in "inappropriate conduct".  Tom speaks with Gerald Walpin to hear his side of the story.
 
Regulatory Reform
The President will be laying out a comprehensive regulatory reform plan today.  How far should government regulators go to protect the consumer?  Plus, the FCC claims they do not want the “fairness doctrine” but are conservative talkers really safe from a federal crackdown?  And, the FAA wants to regulate how pilots commute.
 
Pesky Critters
New York City is planning to round up and kill 2,000 geese to help reduce bird strikes at local airports.  But is gassing these pesky critters the best way to handle the problem?  And, yesterday President Obama demonstrated some impressive fly-swatting skills.  Tom wants to know the best way to kill a fly.
