Oh please oh please, continue with your "Some people say...." reports Thom. Please don't take the high road and tell listeners its just somethings you're making up at the end of the segment. Start every show with a few "Some people say...." issues, and let the chips fall where they may.

If for no other reason then to hear you're right wing guests tell you off for doing so, and hemming and hawing when you point out that its a well known Fox technique (or just ignore it and try to continue condemning you seriously).

Dextrosinistrously ugly. For once, I don't have to look anything up, although "right-left" ugly seems meaningless. Perhaps it refers to interpartisan bickering.

Why have so many people forgotten that "youth" is a count noun when talking about individuals? Children are youths, not youth. A good example (for word formation, but not pronunciation) is that scene from My Cousin Vinnie. Vinnie: "Two yoots." / Judge: "What is a yoot?"

Thom,

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, give us or post a list of the expenditures you spoke of today. This list of the expenditures of the military, subsidies, "Free Trade" etc. is a Great List to have handy when wanting to counter the Tea Party's concern about mis-spending, or the Republican's claim of excess spending on Social Security, Medicare, or Health Care Reform. Your list of spending, which is substantialy higher than any other single national expenditure as a budget item, is an extremely beneficial summary for "Progressives" to argue against. So please post the list of items you mentioned in your TV show today. Thank You!

Did the Fossil Fuel Industry Bring Us to the Point of No Return?

As runaway climate change continues to wreak havoc on the planet, it’s getting harder and harder to disagree with the idea that we’re in the middle of a potentially massive extinction event. It’s also getting harder and harder to ignore the potentially criminal liability of at least some fossil fuel companies for causing this mess.
