Up Oil’s Creek Without a Paddle

I generally write this blog after my show, and use it to reiterate a few points and give the info on the content and guests.  I'll do all of that... But immediately after the show ended, it was time to tune in to President Obama's speech from the Oval Office regarding the biggest man-made environmental disaster in history. Today, government panel of scientists set up to examine the flow from BP's blown out well said that between 1.47 million and 2.52 million gallons of oil is still gushing from the underwater geyser in the Gulf of Mexico every [...]

Huffington Post reports: "We need to eliminate the risk posed to our economy by 'too big [...]

Of Comedy and Tragedy…

The comedy took place Saturday night at the White House Correspondents Dinner. It came from the President, not from the comedian. (Perhaps that was Leno's tragedy!)  The tragedy happened and continues to happen all around us... from the oil geyser in the gulf, to the massive flooding in Nashville and surrounding Southern cities and states, to what's happening to musician Danny Tate, and lots more... We kicked things off today with a conversation with Salon.com Editor in Chief Joan Walsh! It was her first visit to the show, and the first time we'd ever spoken. I'm a fan of Joan's... [...]
