Next week's hour-long U.S. Senate debate between Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and Republican challenger Carly Fiorina promises to be a barn-burner -- right here at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, September 29.
And if you've ever fancied yourself sitting in my chair and asking the questions, now's your chance to have a shot at it, virtually.
We're hoping to be able to mix in some questions for the candidates from you, in your very own dulcet tones. Think of a policy question you'd like to put to the candidates and call our Patt Morrison message line at 626 583 5250. If your question is a winner, we might play it on air for the contenders, so be sure to leave your name, where you're from, and contact information so we can verify that it's not your stunt double doing the calling!
We've had some remarkable interviews this week, so if you missed any of them, do go to the Patt Morrison page and have a listen. Mel Brooks on Tuesday! Neil Sedaka on Monday! And the Great Typo Hunters on Thursday, two men who traveled the nation with [the lamentably misspelled brand-named] ''Wite-Out'' to correct orthographic solecisms -- including one on a particular historic sign at the Grand Canyon. That one got them haled into federal court, on a federal complaint that contained -- you guessed it -- misspellings.
