I guess we should change "The pen is mightier than the sword," to
"The camera is mightier than the gun."

I'd like to correct the caller at the bottom of the 3rd hour, that it's not the Denver school system that's being dumbed down, it's Jefferson County to the west, and Douglas County a little ways to the south of Denver.

Denver is too Democratic to let this sort of thing happen. Douglas is heavily Republican, and Jefferson is fairly mixed, which is why there's more uproar in JeffCo, even though Douglas is further along in the destruction of its public education system. I think at least one of the pro-privatization board members in Douglas was replaced last year in a regularly scheduled election, whereas JeffCo is working up to a recall.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing 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 Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
