Halter hits national TV

Posted By on Wed, Nov 18, 2009 at 2:42 PM

Lt. Gov. Bill Halter is scheduled for an appearance tonight on Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC. The segment is expected to air about 7:15 p.m. our time.

Halter will talk about the free medical clinic to be held Saturday in Little Rock, an event promoted by Olbermann that Halter has helped to arrange.

Olbermann's recent report on a mass clinic in New Orleans undoubtedly will have sad parallels in Little Rock -- people carried on gurneys to hospitals, advanced cancer discovered , people who haven't seen a doctor in years because they couldn't afford it, untreated pain, etc.

The point needs no explanation.

There's been some talk Olbermann will be in town Saturday. He missed the New Orleans event to be with his ailing father.
