Weekly “Common Sense” Radio Program

Jim Brown Audio Player
Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...



The “Common Sense ” program is shaping with a solid schedule for the weekend.  We will take a hard look at the American economy and future projections with special guest,  international economist and former World Bank counselor George R. Tyler.. In his new book, What Went Wrong: How the 1% Hijacked the American Middle Class . . . and What Other Countries Got Right, Tyler takes the reader through a fascinating examination of the American economic experience over the last 30 years, comparing middle class growth in the United States with that of more prosperous nations. So what can we expect in the future?   You can find out more about his book by Clicking Here.


Then we will be joined by All My Children actress Mary Ann Wasil, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. She’ll share her personal story and how she’s faced her battle with grace, style and faith.  We will talk about her book, “A Diary of Healing,” and you can find more about it by Clicking Here.  So check your local listings for times of Jim Brown’s “Common Sense.” See you on the radio.



In Memoriam


My mother-in-law was quite a special lady.  She passed away this week at a young 84. Doris was the rock-solid matriarch of the Solomon family, and oversaw a slew of kids grandkids and great grandkids.  This special lady was quite talented.  We have several of her oil paintings in our home, and she painted landscapes from all over the country.  She married my deceased father-in-law Teddy Solomon in 1949, and lived in McComb, MS until the couple and their six children relocated to New Orleans in 1969.  All her family loved to gather at her home to eat her home-cooked Lebanese food, watch movies, and just spend time with “Maw Maw.” After her family and friends, her next love was playing bridge. And as we all know, “Bridge players never die – they just shuffle away.” Let the Good Lord take good care of Miss Doris.
