Today’s show began with the sickening news about what likely happened to the airliner that went down Tuesday in the French Alps. The brain cannot comprehend a pilot deliberately flying a plane with 150 lives on board into a mountain side. Just unbelievable.

Kaye, professor of Democracy & Justice at University of Wisconsin, Green Bay, and author of a number of must-read books including Thomas Paine and the Promise of America and his latest, The Fight for the Four Freedoms: What Made FDR and the Greatest Generation Truly Great.
Harvey witnessed firsthand Scott Walker’s assault on organized labors and the less-publicized attacks on the state university system, and gave us a refresher course on what Walker inflicted on Wisconsin (and a look at what a Walker WH administration might try to do to the nation).
In the second hour, the Gliberal Goddesses™ gathered for one final show during Women’s History Month 2015, which included a reading from She’s History the play.
