Today's show: "Carmeggedon / Traumatic Brain Injury / Boredom is Death" is dedicated to Elizabeth in her super secret bird-shit free location.

Also on today's show:
1) Local News
2) Other News
3) Local Loco
4) Carmeggedon / Traumatic Injury / Boredom is Death
5) Lit Minit : "Me Talk Pretty One Day," by David Sedaris.


1) Local News


Wine Country

(read YOUR local paper for YOUR local news)

2) Other News "Rupert Murdoch Empire In Peril?"

A call to arms for all of us who have any intention of hoping for a better future for those who haven't had their chance yet, but will soon.

We have to deal with the corporate realities of News and Mass Media, and Rupert Murdoch is as good a place to start as any.

If you have any love for America left, if you think that a Free Press and the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution are -- were -- pretty good things, then this is your hour. Take ten minutes and write, text or talk to SOMEONE about it. Extra points and Karmic Goodies given to those who contact media centers, publishing conglomerates and centers of mass confusion that may actually disburse  the conversation/monologue to a wider audience. We need to take quite a bit of the responsibility for Fox News, NotW, and all the rest of the media under Murdoch's umbrella. Because the only reason he has for building this creation is to sell things to US. Enough of us are still watching Chris and Crew to make it worth NewsCorp's time and trouble to keep producing it. Advertisers are still buying and paying. And it is not fair laying this all off on the Tea Party Conflagration Experiment. We ALL are party to it, regardless of political affiliation or headgear.

       And of course, war, chaos, misery and destruction et al...

3) Local Loco : Read your local paper. And sing a little, too. Write a Letter to the Editor, or to one of the advertisers. Thank them for a good ad or voice your concern about a dangerous product or service. Step out of line a little. Work now or pay a LOT more later, when some Murdoch clone owns all the local press. See Meet Joe Black for more.

5) Lit Minit : "Me Talk Pretty One Day," by David Sedaris.
