With over 300 million people in the US - you are sure to find a nut case or two. The rest of us should not be held acountable because of their actions. Put everybody back to work - bring our manufacturing base back and get middle class jobs back from Communist China, this is what we should be focusing on. The more notoriety you give a nut case, just inspires the boarder line cases. Get your kids off the violent video games, is a good start. Go out - play ball, ride your bicycle, do something other then playing war games on the computer.

I agree pretty much with Uncle Jimbo, however, we should a national framework for how to deal with weapons of war. It is far too easy to get weapons that should not be in a civil society.

Should public radio program in the public interest?

NPR is supposed to be our national public radio, but they're barely covering climate issues that are in the public's interest.

Only one month ago, a national New York Times/CBS News poll found that half of all Americans think that global warming is already having a serious impact. Sixty percent of those surveyed even said that protecting our environment should be a priority “even at the risk of curbing economic growth.”

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
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."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
