Today is Good Friday, the day Christians believe Jesus Christ was crucified. Jesus, whom Christians believe to be the Son of God as well as the Messiah, was arrested, tried and sentenced by Pontius Pilate and was brutally beaten and finally crucified.  We will discuss the event, which is the foundation of Christian orthodoxy today on "The Mike Bastinelli Show."

Also today, we will talk to Patrick Conner, the Washington state director of the National Federation of Independent Business. He will give us the NFIB;'s report card for state legislators for this past session.

We will also have on the program Richard Greenberg, author of the book "Raising Children That Other People Like to Be Around."

"A recent study by researchers at Iowa State University suggests kids who play violent video games will have more aggressive behavior and keep aggressive thoughts regardless of age, gender or parental involvement." Greenberg says. He will discuss the study on-air today.

"The Mike Bastinelli Show,"today from 3-6 p.m. on AM 1280 and FM 99.3 Newstalk KIT.
