This Monday, Philippe Boucher sat with Jay Inslee on a sunny bench at the Farmer's market. Jay talks about a recent trip to Europe where he had the opportunity to voice his concerns about Airbus vs Boeing. He gives several examples of new technologies to improve energy use but is Detroit ready for them? As a follow up on the presentation given by Amory Lovins on February 11, he explains how the Pentagon can play a key role to help. Islanders had asked VoB to transmit questions to Jay about the filibuster and the electoral reform (paper trail etc), here are his answers. At the end we discussed the ferry problem, the fares and why we are in this situation. Listen (16 min).

It all started with frustration, searching for a decent radio program on Sunday night while washing the dishes. Besides the lack of talk programs, Philippe Boucher wanted to hear more programs about Bainbridge, the environment and political issues not covered by mainstream media. "But how do you serve a community like Bainbridge Island?" said Boucher, a Winslow resident. "The logic is we should have our own radio (station)."
