After learning that Hillary Clinton chose Ken Salazar to head her transition team should she win the presidency, a question was asked on a listserv: Is Salazar a tell? To which Gaius Publius answered, "About the eighth in a row, yes." To me, that's a challenge! So I invited him on today's show to tell us the tells... He provided links too!

I've written about fracking a lot. Click here to see our previous posts at RoN. You can also scroll through these rather alarming and extensive archives from my old stomping grounds at The Political Carnival. Take this oldie but goodie for example: Fracking is linked to methane risks: “When methane concentrations are that high, water can bubble like champagne.” Salud! Today's Los Angeles Times has a California Section front pager that once again illustrates how Big Greedy Oil and Big Greedy Gashats are utterly devoid of foresight, unless, of course, it pertains to their own enormous wallets. Check this out: Data culled from the first [...]
It's Groundhog Day and we're doing the same stupid things again and again. Oil & energy expert, author & journalist Antonia Juhasz weighs in on Obama's decision to open the Atlantic to drilling. Plus Julianna Forlano helps Nicole Sandler unpack the week's most absurd news stories (of which there are plenty to choose from).
Nicole celebrates Halloween with a look at one of the scariest right wing trick players in politics, Rick Berman. CMD's Lisa Graves with another expose! And for our Flashback Friday treat, we go back to May 1995 with Joan Osborne, and her first LA radio appearance.
I write about fracking a lot (scroll), and for good reason. Did I mention that the Los Angeles Times reported that in Ohio, geologists have found a connection between fracking and earthquakes? Or that oil drilling and fracking are producing radioactive waste? Yet, we haven't heard a peep about Big Oil, Gas, and Fracking possibly killing newborns from those very same "pro-lifers" who hypocritically devote themselves to "saving babies." And let's not forget that fracking is linked to methane risks: “When methane concentrations are that high, water can bubble like champagne.” Salud! Awhile back I wrote Frackers are guzzling water supplies in drought states the way John Boehner [...]
The "About LAPD" page at JoinLAPD.com tells us: In 1955, a contest was announced in the Los Angeles Police Department's internal magazine, BEAT. The contest involved devising a motto for the Los Angeles Police Academy. The motto needed to be something that would succinctly express the ideals to which those who serve as Los Angeles Police Officers are dedicated. The winning entry, "to protect and to serve", was submitted by Officer Joseph S. Dorobek and served as the LAPD academy's motto until, by City Council action, it became the official motto of the entire Los Angeles Police Department in 1963. It continues [...]
