Great promotion, Sentinel! You never seem to fail the Tea Party Nation events, do you? I just hope, for your sake, that they buy subscriptions.


This group has nothing to do with the Tea Party, but thanks for playing SJT.


"nothing to do with the Tea Party".

Yeah, SJT, just because almost all of the Kings Co Tea Party folks are also Tea Partiers doesn't mean they are one and the same.

Same membership + same philosophical beliefs = only a coincidence. (wink, wink)


Inga Barks is awesome to listen to on the radio as well as in person. She makes sense and actually looks inside the issues and not merely on the surface.

Additionally, she does not neglect coverage for Hanford and Kings County either like some other area media-types tend to do.

It is too bad - but entirely predictable - that some die-hard libs take umbrage with this Sentinel article and it's informative contents.

That's probably because it's just not in their dogma's 'cup of tea!'
