Here’s what you missed Thursday on the Jay Mcfarland show.

Unemployment insurance and claims are on the rise and employers are cutting jobs again as the economic recovery slows.  How do we get employers to 1. Stop laying off people and 2. start hiring new people?

More has come out about the 29 year-old shooter from this week’s rampage in McKinney. Patrick Sharp appears to have been living a different life online than the one he was living in reality. Is our use of technology affecting how we interact with people directly? Are texting and social networking contributing to our detachment from society?

Jay continues to update you about the mosque being built near Ground Zero in New York City. Is it the right thing to build it there? Can’t they be more understanding? But can’t we also be more understanding? Why do we associate mosques and Muslims only with the attacks on 9/11?
