Tuesday Morning News Roundup

I’m traveling for the next couple days and I’m not sure what kind of Internet connection I’ll have.

By the way, the changes to my website that I promised a couple of months ago should be happening now. Hopefully the process should be relatively seamless.

A new national database of cell phone numbers should significantly decrease the the selling or, better stated, reselling of stolen cell phones.

Minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee meeting back in January of 2007 have just been released. Remember, this was right at the cusp of our financial meltdown. If anyone in the country should’ve known where the economy was going and what needed to be done, it was the people in this meeting. The transcript is over 500 pages. It is highly redacted. Let me know what you think.

I continue to be flabbergasted by the Secret Service scandal. Hookers? Really?

Continued drone strikes in Yemen.

The girl in the Pulitzer-prize winning photo continues to be haunted by nightmares.

Let me reiterate, the devastating storms from a couple days ago could’ve been much, much worse. The early warning detection systems that we, the American people, have invested in actually worked. These detection systems were able to give weatherman increased information and they in turn passed that on to the American people. More people had more time.

Trial in the Netherlands.

Where do our tax dollars go?

The Errington Thompson Show 2-7-09

I’m behind again in posting. I’ll try and catch up today.

I have an open mic today and there are some great calls from thoughtful callers. The show starts with the fact that we are being nickled-and-dimed to death. Whether it is cell phones or the price of gas, we are asked to understand market fluctuations when I don’t think this is to be blamed on market forces at all. Companies are simply taking more and more of our money and we are getting less and less.

I spent a great deal of time discussing the new unemployment numbers. 598,000 Americans out of work; 1.5 million Americans laid off since November. While these numbers are awful, I think that they will get worse. Meanwhile, Senate Republicans are singing that old Simon and Garfunkel tune – Feeling Groovy. They want us to slow down.

This is a great show. Enjoy.

The Errington Thompson Show 1-5-08

New Year.  Great Show.  Melissa Harris-Lacewell, associate professor of Political Science and African American studies at Princeton University, is in the house!!  She talks to us via cell phone from outside an Obama rally in New Hampshire.  Now, you can’t say that she doesn’t get her information from the front lines.  This is a fun thoughtful interview if I do say so myself.  If you are interested in the political process, you can’t miss this interview.

Remember I’m on iTunes and several other podcasting services.
