On Tuesday morning we'll be visting with "Insight" host Jeffrey Callison on Capitol Public Radio. The show airs weekdays on KXJZ (90.9 FM) between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

This link opens the show's website. Click the "Listen Live" button in the upper right side of the page to stream the interview, which will probably start the show. We expect the discussion to center on Wednesday's much-anticipated California Supreme Court hearing of Professional Engineers in California Government v. Schwarzenegger.

"Insight" archives its interviews, so you can click in later if you miss the live broadcast.

Side note: If you want to get more insight into the "Insight" host, check out this recent restaurant review by The Bee's "Counter Culture" food critic Allen Pierleoni. Al blends a review of Pho Xe Lua, a Vietnamese restaurant, with a brief bio of his Scottish lunch companion, Callison.

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
