    NEW YORK (AP) -- Air America Radio filed for bankruptcy reorganization Friday, in the latest patch of turbulence to befall the liberal talk radio network that launched two years ago headlined by the comedian and author Al Franken.

No worries here in Los Angeles. Our affiliate is a separate entity and actually has some good homegrown talent. Having said that, though, it's a little premature to declare the idea dead. The people at the top couldn't handle the financial aspects, but the actual hosts did a wonderful job. Heck, Randi Rhodes is holding her own (if not BEATING) Rush Limbaugh in several large markets.
