It was a tough night last night, but Nicole Sandler is here to point out the many silver linings in #StillSanders-land. Dave Johnson of the Campaign for America's Future joins in to help put things in perspective. And Deborah Newell returns for our Wednesday morning Oy FloriDUH session, with a 4/20 detour to the "Patients Out of Time" conference.
Today is the day your 2015 income taxes are due. It's a good day to compare and contrast the candidates to see how your dollars would be spent in their respective administrations. Today, Joel Silberman returns as he votes in NY tomorrow. And Cliff Schecter sets the record straight on John Kasich, the governor of his home state, and I coin a new term, Kasichsplaining

We somehow made it to the end of this bloody week still standing. Today on the show, Nicole Sandler chats with The Nation's John Nichols about Wisconsin's new voter ID law & how it accomplished what the GOP legislature (who passed it) set out to do. Lee Camp brings the humor about the serious stakes as we head into the weekend. And in honor of Joan Baez endorsing Bernie Sanders, we have a Flashback Fri segment from 1996 with Joan and Dar Williams.
“Dear Gov. Cuomo, please stop blaming teachers for your failure to support our public school” #MoralMondays
The Rev. William Barber II urges education equality at the NYS Capitol. #MoralMondays #FaithFairNY pic.twitter.com/wAfVD5jN6U — CSEA Local 1000 (@CSEALocal1000) January 12, 2015 A lot of us are loyal liberals, passionate Progressives, devoted Democrats. However, that doesn't mean we blindly support Democrats who don't act like Democrats, at least not if we want this country to evolve and prosper.

The picture above was taken in 1984 or 1985, when I produced a monthly statewide "Ask the Governor" radio show. (Another aside: [...]
"When will they ever learn?" -- Pete Seeger The answer, sadly, is never. Mankind has waged war since the beginning of time. If it were up to me, world leaders who wanted to send their nations' youth to battle should, instead, meet one another in an arena and fight to the death. Maybe that would end the killing. Back in World War I & II, soldiers returning from the battlefield were described as being "shell shocked". Today it's Post Traumatic Stress. Regardless what you call it, people who experience the madness of war, of watching their fellow soldiers blown to bits [...]
