"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
Thom talked about the Supreme Court decision yesterday that affirmed the right of those held at Guantanamo Bay to the writ of habeas corpus - the right to not speak against yourself, the right to bail, the right to a fair and speedy trial, the right to confront your accusers, particularly the dissents by Scalia and Roberts.
Interesting note - the John McCain campaign is encouraging (and paying, with "points") trolls to spam blogs!

Thom interviewed Bob Barr, Libertarian Party Presidential Nominee. They discussed the Supreme Court ruling on habeas corpus for detainees, impeachable crimes, the lack of oversight by Congress, how to deal with problems such as the contamination of tomatoes by E coli, doing away with federal programs, and balancing budgets - raising taxes vs. cutting spending.
