Don’t Drink the Water – or- Nowhere to Run

We're killing the planet. Actually, more accurately, we're making this planet uninhabitable. The picture above is one of a few I saw posted around the interwebs this morning of the "water" that's coming out of faucets in Charleston, WV today - after authorities gave the all-clear and said the stuff was safe to drink, bathe in, and give your kids. Lovely, huh? And even though information from Japan about what's going on at and around Fukushima is now non-existent due to a new state secrets law that prohibits the dissemination of information (and even prohibits journalists from asking the questions!), [...]

Friday, revisited

I don't usually do a show on Fridays.  I was planning to spend Friday doing what I did for the rest of the weekend -- packing everything that was left in my soon-to-be former house.  But I awoke to an email asking if I could start my week-long fill-in stint for Randi Rhodes as day earlier, as her dog Simon had taken a turn for the worse.

That said... today on the show, I reached out to listener Jeremy Boulat.  He's an American living in Japan.  He emailed me last month, after I asked who was out there listening.  Then, the earthquake hit, followed by the tsunami, followed by radiation fears from the crippled plants of mass destruction at Fukushima. Jeremy sent this email out to some of his friends last week: Dear friends... This is Jeremy. As you know, I live in Japan.  And recently, Japan we've been hit with a very huge, 9.0 magnitude earthquake. The [...]

Fighting for our Lives

We are. Literally fighting for our lives. In Japan. In Libya, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia. And all over the United States in places like Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Arizona and other states who've elected Republican governors who want to bust unions and penalize the poor and working class for- well-being poor or working class, people are also fighting for their lives. I can say that with no trepidation, because if these governors dictators are able to foist their agendas on their states, the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will be denied. After all, how can [...]
