Every year thousands of people become US citizens after passing a basic test about the ins and outs of American history, tradition and government. Of course, those of us who were born here aren't required to pass such a test - you ask me, to the detriment of our country. I came across an online (and much shortened) version of the citizenship test, that I would recommend you take, either to assure yourself that you are sufficiently informed to bear the heavy responsibility of American citizenship, or if not, to identify the areas in which you need to brush up. I passed with a 57, but I gotta say, it was pretty hard! Do you think something like this should be required for full rights as a citizen, including the right to vote? I have misgivings, but I think there are a lot of pretty under-informed Americans out there, and that can't be good for our country.
Take the test HERE and let us know how you did!
Chris Mosser takes the KVET reins every weekday afternoon from 3pm to 7pm! Chris was born and raised in Lubbock, and got his radio start there at KRLB "FM-99" and later at the legendary Hub City rock station, 94.5 FMX. Chris was also playing bass guitar for a heavy metal band called Human at that time, and relocated with the band to Austin in 1993. He has been a staple of the Austin radio and live music scene ever since, and is thus in hog heaven. Chris has arguably played more Austin and Texas music on Austin's radio waves than any other radio dude in town!
When he's not sleeping or yapping on the radio, Chris enjoys spending time with his beautiful family, exploring Austin's restaurants, movie theaters and live music venues, building stuff (badly), experimenting with new and exotic cocktail recipes, cooking competition-grade Texas chili and setting things on fire in his backyard.
