The show gets off on a light note, as Bill and Jeff present another edition of “Where the Tech Are We?” and deal with a funny e-mail. But the third letter raises a serious question: How can the Christian on the college campus defend Christian ethics when homosexuality is normalized? Is there any way to suggest that homosexuality is wrong without appearing intolerant? Incredibly, Bill ends by offering a political solution–something so tactful and strategic that Jeff is shocked.

It seems this topic is worthy of about forty segments, but hosts Bill Jack and Jeff Baldwin arbitrarily decide to stop at three. The discussion stays lively here, as they provide a quick summation of what had been said in the last two shows and then try to spell out the hazards associated with free market solutions. Bill and Jeff grade the current National Park system, with Jeff giving it an “A” and Bill giving it a “C-” largely because of a perceived worldview shift. Jeff doesn’t dispute the worldview shift, but is actually happier with NPS policy as they make access more difficult to certain wilderness areas. How can this be? Isn’t the essence of the National Park Service access for all interested citizens?
Is it possible to privatize the national park system and not court disaster? Nobody wants the kitsch of Branson, Missouri on the north rim of the Grand Canyon, or Disneyland mascots running around Carlsbad–or do they? And if enough people want it, would it justify exploiting natural treasures? Can we trust men to be good stewards of the most beautiful landscapes in a free market system? Can we trust the government to manage them better? Is that even the government’s job? The questions just keep piling up, until Bill and Jeff admit that there will have to be a Part Three to this discussion.
