"please do not touch kids." Rantz is disappointed that Russia's institutional problems are informed by stereotypes and has a conversation about U.S. athletes boycotting Sochi. Sen. Karen Keiser is speaking out against a new bill that would abolish the state Office of the Insurance Commissioner and she joins the show to explain why this bill must be stopped. She outlines the importance of the Commissioner's role and discusses the implications of the proposed new 10-person panel.
