WBAL in Baltimore is the latest radio station preparing to chide WalNUT Creek’s banning of the Easter Bunny. EasterBunnyDude is scheduled to be interviewed on the Chip Franklin show on Friday, April 6 at 10 a.m. Eastern time, which is the un-Easterly hour of 7 a.m. for those of us on the left coast. For those of you pining to hear EBD’s voice, you can listen live from the radio station’s Web site. Special thanks to Easter Bunny supporter and Baltimore Sun sports columnist Peter Schmuck (yep, that’s his real name) for setting this up.

Dumb and Dumber Award: Seems that El Cerrito wants to compete with WalNUT Creek for the most clueless cities when it comes to naming the Easter Bunny. They offer a visit from a “very special bunny.” How sweet.
