Bowling for Columbine was right - it's about the guns and the culture in the U.S.

Also the continuous cutting back of funding for mental health services.

Please don't put limiting or interpretative qualifiers behind "YES" and "NO" without adding "NONE OF THE ABOVE" There's not much about basic "YES" and "NO" that most of us don't understand. Qualifiers create gaps in the YES/NO universe.

This a.m. I wrote a comment on my Facebook stating this same comment, though different wording. Very sad that our culture seems to be changing.

Be sure to join Thom in our chatroom during the program!

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
