Hello Brian, Thank you for Up

Hello Brian,
Thank you for Up Front. I listen every single morning and always learn from the show. I am especially appreciative of your interview with Liana Molina regarding pay day loan sharks. I admit that when I first heard the interview I was annoyed that there is an organization trying to eradicate the pay day lender I have to depend on four to five times a year. As it happens, I had planned to visit Check 'n Go later the same day. When I got there, went through all the paper-work and was waiting to receive my loan, I was told they no longer give the full amount in cash. The new procedure was the straw that broke this camel's back. Not only will I NEVER take out another pay day loan, but I accessed the archived show so that I could get the name of the interviewee and the organization she spoke on behalf of. I am going to contact her and do every-thing I can to support and assist the efforts of the California Reinvestment Coalition. Thank you so much for keeping your listeners so well informed!
