Thom's gallery has some pictures featured more than once and some neat and popular ones, that were on the site before its reconstruction, not at all. One in particular that was a favorite of mine - and, I'll bet, of a lot of other folks - was the one of Thom at 17. I'm glad I saved that one to my computer and to the cloud.

Whoa! You lived in the UP! I would live in a carboard box I think if it were up there, (well, in the summer anyway, but I would like to be up there in the Winter too if it meant I could get a lifer (birder term) Great Grey Owl; we don't have those down where I am); that's so cool! Once I visted with a friend of mine up there, and we picked all these wild blueberries and made the best blueberry pie I had ever had; wild blueberries are better, and there were so many. I loved how few people there were living up there, it was really peaceful and green.

Can Trump get away with normalizing a coup?

Thom plus logo One of the big lessons that Donald Trump has learned through his years at the center of the New York tabloid media is that he can normalize just about anything.

When he was getting bad press because he was having an affair on his first wife, for example, he called newspapers pretending to be his own assistant to say that Marla Maples was astonished with "the best sex ever." It changed the entire newspaper narrative, and Trump proved to himself one more time that he can normalize just about anything.
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
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:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
