Leaked: The Internet must go!

Hey! Are you on the internet right now? Of course you are! Then you should definitely check out this amazing video about what the internet companies are planning. This move could hurt both consumers and content creators--but of course would be a huge windfall for internet providers.

How weathly are Americans?

The disparity in wealth between the richest one percent of Americans and the bottom 80 percent has grown exponentially over the last thirty years — but the video, posted by user politizane and relying on data from a popular Mother Jones post, focuses on the difference between the ideal disparity that Americans would like to see and the reality.

Tax the Rich

So long! It's been fun.

Dear listeners,

In July 2011 I started a new job teaching Italian at Kansas State University. In some ways this was a return to my roots, as I taught English as a Foreign Language for 17 years in Italy. Now I am teaching English speakers Italian. I've come full circle.

This coming full circle also means the end of an attempt on my part to start a new career in my 50s. Sadly, as much as I tried to bring community radio to Manhattan, I was not successful. So I have decided to dedicate my energy and time to my first love, being an educator.

The archive of my shows will remain active - there's a lot of great content in the shows. So I hope you continue to listen and enjoy them.

Once again thank you for your support and encouragement over the five years the show was on the air. I know many feel that my program needs to be on the air and I agree with you that a diversity of voices is sorely lacking in the local media. But alas, it is not I who will bring that diversity. It will have to be someone else.

Expelled Exposed - pseudo science for Kansas classrooms


From Kansas Families for Public Education....

It was not that long ago that the Kansas State Board of Education was trying to insert pseudo science into our classrooms, and they'll try it again if we give them the chance.

It's no coincidence that the Creationist propaganda movie "Expelled" opens in theaters around the country this weekend, just before important upcoming 2008 elections. They are invigorating their base, and they will mislead the public, use deceptive tactics, and yes, outright lies to do so.

Retaking a majority of the Kansas State Board of Education - and another expensive and embarrassing battle over creationism and evolution - is one of their major goals.

The National Center for Science Education has unveiled their website, "Expelled Exposed," to debunk the lies and distortions of the film. Please take a few minutes and visit their website to learn the TRUTH.

It only takes you a few minutes to be informed. Read the brief facts as reported by the NCSE, and watch the video. Then take two more minutes and forward this e-mail to everyone you know.
