Your 5-question poll this morning was interesting because I see more publishers going to a pay-for-receive model. There are two things about DML NEWS that I like and believe it separates you from the other outlets. #1 I trust you. #2 it feels intimate. Not to see those ads on your website and to feel like I am part of a group is attractive to me and I would gladly pay $100 per year. I get my news only from DML so for me this is all a big bonus. Never seeing an ad again is music in thought alone. Yours is not the only website with the ads. Some sites have big ads that pop up and take over the entire page. This house loves DML.
DML: Thank you Lee.
Mr. Lynch I have been following you for a very long time and so I hope there is a really good explanation behind that photo of you today on the poll questions.
DML: Your comment is equal parts threatening and funny. Tune in at 11:30am for the Walk & Talk and I will explain.
DML, the show today and the President speaking about his brother was so very sad for me.
I recently wrote to you and told you about my husband passing away on Sept. 9th. We had been together for 40 wonderful years but all this time he did drink wine, beer and sometimes hard liquor. I hounded him many times because I was just a very casual drinker and did not see any value in drinking something on a daily basis even though as he said it was “just one drink”. We had many fights although they were never severe ones but bad enough sometimes to ruin a day or an event. For the past 5 years he had been sick with heart problems, sleep apnea, breathing issues but we never knew what his real problem was until it was too late. He would never tell a doctor that he drank, he would never admit that he drank/ He would say “I know what I’m doing, I know how much I can drink”. Crazily he was a health nut, and would not drink anything with high fructose corn syrup because it was bad for you, and he did not smoke because it was bad for you, we very seldom ate fast food and he was a fantastic cook who would make elaborate healthy meals. But alcohol…beer, wine, he would not admit that they were bad for him and continued to drink right up to a few weeks before he died.
Just four weeks before he died we found out he had cirrhosis of the liver and he was very seriously ill. The liver was so advanced it was effecting and poisoned his brain.
I guess he lived a pretty long life, 77 years, considering he started drinking when he was a teenager. But see he thought that because he didn’t stagger and fall all over when drinking that it didn’t affect his body. He never thought of how it destroys the liver in time.
I now feel guilty although I know it is not my fault, and he should have know better, but I wish I could have stopped him from drinking. We had such a fun life together. We built our own log home all by ourselves entirely. We traveled the world. We worked together daily. We had so much going for us, now I am alone with our beautiful unique one of a kind house.
It has only been a short time since his death, but now I have find myself telling
people that I talk to to Please think before drinking alcohol. It does kill!
I am so devastated.
I continue to watch you daily and am LOVING your new format and studio. It is really professional and looking and sounding great.
THANK YOU DML for being there in my life. — Pat Martin
DML: Wow. Thank you for sharing you story and picture with me. I can tell you really love Steve. Lucky man he was. God bless his soul.
We have had a terrible problem with addicts hanging out at the large, downtown Denver Public Library. They were having multiple overdoses a day. They had to start stocking Narcan at the library. People have stopped going to the library, or letting their kids go, so Mayor finally sent police in to clean the addicts out. They are not talking about it anymore on the local news, so I don’t know if things are better now, but I would doubt it. It has gotten so far out of hand, I would imagine they have just found a new location to shoot up. I would love for our President to find a solution to this problem. We have lost too many good people.
DML: What a story. It so highlights how bad things are. I am really happy to see so many people were happy with me covering the drug problem on Friday’s The Truth. I will do more of it in the future.
