Wild mustangs

Hey Tom,

I have owned a wild mustang for the past 15 years. She is one of the most intelligent horses I have ever had. I hope everyone writes to the blm and tells them to do right by the mustangs. They need a voice because the cattle lobby would like them all dead.

WHITE PRIVILEDGE AND THE SHERROD CASE

IN THE MIDST OF THE SOUNDBITE ANALYSIS WE HAVE HAD TO ENDURE THE PAST THREE DAYS CONCERNING THE SHERROD CASE, WE HAVE MISSED THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS. FIRST, A POOR FARMER, LOSING HIS FARM WALKED INTO HER OFFICE AND EXERCISED HIS INHERENT WHITE PRIVILEDGE BY DENIGRATING A BLACK LAWYER. WHEN HE WAS REFERRED TO A WHITE LAWYER WHO PROMPTLY DISMISSED HIM, HE HAD TO SUCK UP HIS WHITE PRIVILEDGE AND WITH HAT IN HAND WENT BACK TO MS. SHERROD. SO IN EFFECT THERE WERE TWO LESSONS ILLUSTRATED IN THIS SHAMEFUL CASE. IT IS TOO BAD THAT MOST PEOPLE MISSED IT.

Shirley Sherrod: Defamation claim?...

I listened to your podcast as usual yesterday, and thought I'd take a minute to clear up the confusion over the question of whether or not Ms. Sherrod could sue Breitbart for defamation. ("Libel" is written defamation, "Slander" is oral defamation, incidentally; but the legal standard for both is the same.)

Germany's alternative energy capacity put in perspective

On Thom's show today (7/21/10) he breathlessly praised the German effort for alternative energy sources for electrical power generation. Both he and his guest repeatedly erred when quoting alternative power generation figures as "8MW" (eight megawatts). That figure is about 1,000 times too low. In fact 8MW would service only a about 7-8 thousand average American homes.

Shirley Sharrod: A Teachable Moment

In all the back-and-forth about the Shirley Sherrod/Fox News issue, nobody has taken advantage of the real teachable moment in all this, which is: Shirley Sherrod's point in her original presentation that was excerpted for the smear was that the issue in our economy isn't black vs. white, it's rich vs. poor. All the pundits and news-hounds want to make this about finding out who in Obama's administration made the decision to fire her.
