This morning, KHUM Listener X says he was driving the limit on Myrtle Avenue in Eureka when another driver, Driver Y, passed him in the shared turning lane, the so-called 'suicide lane.'
This was preceded by Driver Y allegedly tailgating Listener X four feet off his bumper. Driver Y then allegedly pulled into Starbucks. Listener X says that he sees her pull in, and follows her into the coffee shop. Listener X testifies that he told her:
"Big hurry, huh? That is a horrible way to drive. You're putting people at risk with that shit. You ought to be ashamed of yourself."
He also said:
"I was not overly aggressive about it. I didn't get in her face or block her path at all. Just said my piece and left."
Listener X says she muttered something unintelligible, and then he then drove home to report the driver's actions to CHP.
Today at noon, KHUM Debate Club resumes with Andrew Goff taking the side of "Meh, let it go." I will argue from the viewpoint of Listener X.
For you to decide: Did this alleged infraction warrant this reaction? Is Listener X a Citizen Hero or Vigilante Maniac?
Jury selection is finished. If you want to be a juror, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading "juror."

This morning I spoke with Carolyn Lehman, author of "Strong At The Heart," a book about healing from sexual abuse. This book chronicles the stories and 11 different people from all walks of life, all of who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse. This is a surprisingly uplifting book. Hearing how people have come through such terrible events and found strength and purpose on the other side is inspiring.
Lehman has been a guest during KHUM's Stop The Violence campaign several times including our Key Note Speaker at our Healing Breakfast. Tomorrow afternoon she and representatives from North Coast Rape Crisis Team will be at Northtown Books. Strong At The Heart is being rerelease as a paperback with updated resources. Refreshments will be served and Carolyn will be signing books during the event.

This morning I spoke with Lori Dengler, Humboldt County's premier earthquake expert, about the 8.2 earthquake that struck Chile yesterday and the tsunami that followed. This morning the tsunami is actually coming ashore, but it is only about 2 inches -- not sizable enough to cause any damage.
Lori went into depth on how subduction zone quakes work and what we can expect here on the North Coast when the Cascadia Subduction Zone ruptures. The big thing to remember is that we only have about 10 minutes warning for a large tsunami in a Cascadia Subduction Zone quake. Chile is a wake up call for all of us on the North Coast. Be prepared, have a plan, practice.

Tonight, in a very special edition of The Cocktail Hour, we'll be featuring the Aces Wild cocktail. Made with Blue Flame rye (see recipe below), we'll have expert mixology instructions at the opening of the show. What's that? Yes! A live and local bartender, Nathan from Tomo Japanese Restaurant, will be present to explain how to mix the drink professionally.
1 to 1.5 oz Blue Flame rye whiskey.

Cliff talks with Emily Sinkhorn and Darin Dinsmore of Crowdbright who facilitated a meeting last night at Azalea Hall regarding the Central Ave Improvement Project. This brainstorming session brought together dispirit viewpoints to find common ground. The discussion continues at www.crowdbrite.com. There will also be a series of meetings regarding the proposed McKay Tract Community Forest. That is also discussed.
