What's Going On – News Round Up

  • First, an update to a story that I posted yesterday. It was about the Texas GOP and a vendor at the state convention that had a “special” Obama button. Well, the Texas GOP has decided that they didn’t want them. They have been booted.
  • Coca production in Columbia is up. When we talk about wasteful spending when are we going to add the War on Drugs which has been a huge failure.
  • Washington paid tribute to Tim Russert.
  • More flooding in the midwest. When is our president going to actually go to Iowa and Illinois?
  • Tiger Woods is out for the rest of the season to have knee surgery that he should have had 10 months ago.
  • The Boston Celtics win the most anti-climatic NBA finals, ever. Every knew who was supposed to win since the start of the season.

The Errington Thompson Show 3-1-08

Great show.  I review several of the lies or untruths that have been circulating about Barack Obama.  Then I talk with Scott Horton who writes for Harper’s Magazine’s No Comment blog and guest lectures at Columbia University.  He is a human rights lawyer.  Scott has been writing about the Don Siegelman story for quite a while.    Enjoy.
