The Jack Rice Show, Wednesday, June 21, 2006.

Jack discusses the tragic story of the three young boys who allegedly killed their neighbor's little puppy. Should the parents of these children be held responsible? What should be dine? Should laws change protecting pet owner's pets from harm and death by recognizing pets as family members rather than mere property or livestock?

More than 460 men are still being detained in Guantanomo Bay. The UK and the EU say that GTMO should be closed. Even President Bush said he would like to close but sees no alternative. Well, in order to get a clearer picture of the situation, Jack will go directly to the Pentagon to talk with Cully Stimson, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense in charge of Guantanamo Bay to discuss if GITMO is necessary.

As mid-term elections are heating up, and as we look to the Presidential electionsin 2008, some are questions the role of women in politics. According to a recent study, the US ranks 68th in the world in terms of the number of women holding national political office. There has never been a woman President. There has never been a woman even on the ballot to be President from a major party. Theere has only been one women on the VP ticket and that was Geraldine Ferraro in 1984. Why? Would women do a better job? Is there something that women would bring to the table as politicians just because they are women?

Jack takes your calls.
