This article about sugar (in this case, high-fructose corn syrup) making you dumb has the absolute wrong conclusion. There is no control group for the sugar; there is a control for the omega-3 fatty acids. There is no way to get a valid statement about the effect of sugar on intelligence from a study in which all the rats get the same dose of sugar. It's bad science.

Hi Thom,

Thom I love you like a brother! Here's the part that hurts me, to be critical of Ellen Ratner's (and your) comments on the unemployment numbers. My head exploded when Ellen commented on how wonderful the number were not being negative! Ellen forgot to mentions the March and April numbers were revised down by tens of thousands! Without new job numbers +200k there is more unemployment being generated due to new additions to the population. This was a horrible report for many reasons! Growth has stopped in this country and most of the world. This would have been a major platform for O'Bummer to attack the Republicons! O'Bummer will and has now used this report as GOOD NEWS we are still creating jobs! O'Bummer will go down in defeat not understanding how real people live. I wish he would have rolled down the limo windows during the ten minutes he was my Senator. I am losing hope that we and by proxy our government will survive the enduring depression.Growth is not always a good thing and we have no other plans than more Mcmansions, suvs and burgers. My prediction now, in the coming year the depression will intensify so strongly the G-8 will mention a new global economic system to try and salvage the last hopes of the failed last three decades! We no longer have the time to replay failed policies of O'Bummer/Shrub and the gang of thieves T.G., L.S. B.B. A.G. and R.R. (I think everyone by now knows these intials ha). I work in Chile now and then, it might be time to stay there? The police have bars on their cars, to protect them from the people and I like that! Landrew

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
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
