LOUIE TODAY: Rally for Nitro, Editor Todd, 'Fixing America' and life with cancer



Published: Thu, December 1, 2011 @ 11:33 p.m.

Louie, Vindy.com's news radio partner, will be joined today by local activist Dana Donnelly, who will talk about a rally next Wednesday at statehouse for Nitro's Law, which has been stalled in the House criminal justice committee all year.

The bill was spurred by the abuse and starvation deaths of numerous dogs, including one named Nitro, in a former kennel on Hubbard-Coitsville Road. It would enable courts to impose stiffer penalties against kennel operators who abuse or neglect animals in their care.

Also, Vindicator Editor Todd Frank will review this week's top stories talk and offer a glimpse into Sunday's Vindicator and Vindy.com's new SHALE SHEET .

Louie also will talk with Franklin Servan-Schreiber about the life of his brother, the late David Servan-Schreiber, a psychiatrist and neuroscientist who wrote "Not the Last Goodbye, On Life,Death and Cancer" before he died last summer, and earlier penned "The Instinct to Heal and Anticancer: A new way of Life."

David was clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and co-founded the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

And filmmaker Steve Laffey returns to the show today to give an update on the progress of "Fixing America, The Movie," some of which was filmed in Youngstown, including the tattered flag at the end of the trailer, which Laffey noticed downtown when he was filming here.

Louie, Thank you so much for letting me and Donna both talk about Nitro's Law! (today and yesterday) Sadly other Ohio radio stations just wanted to call us all crazy without reading the facts first.. I'm very happy that you do know the facts, and have supported Nitro's Law for quite awhile now. OHIO NEEDS NITRO'S LAW! RALLY: Dec7th, 2011 @10-4pm!

Thank you for giving airtime to Nitro's Law, HB 108. OHIO needs to wake up to the ridiculously lax and lenient 'slap on the wrist' punishment for gross animal cruelty in all it's forms. What is especially repugnant is a person who purports to be 'an animal lover and rescuer' who is the chief abuser........

Thank you for your help in spreading the word on HB 108, Nitro's LAW! Ohio is sadly in the bottom 5 for animal abuse consequences... This law will represent all of the GOOD people, and all of the abused animals in Ohio that have been dis-honored and swept aside.
