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.

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.

June 25 Part 2 - Health Care Reform

During our extend summer edition beginning at 6:00 pm, we look into health care reform. First we rebroadcast a June 11th GRIT TV show in which Laura Flanders interviews Leonard Rodberg, Professor of Urban and Health Policy at Queens College CUNY, Dr Laura Boylan of Physicians for a National Health Program, Karen Davenport, Director of Health Policy for the Center for American Progress and Rep. Mary Caferro, recipient of the 2008 Families USA Consumer Health Advocate award.

Following the GRIT TV panel we will rebroadcast part of Democracy Now's June 16th show looking at health care reform. First we hear Dr. Quentin Young, National Coordinator for Physicians for a National Health Program, and Dr. Chris McCoy, an Instructor of Medicine at the Mayo Clinic and the chair of the policy committee for the National Physicians Alliance, who recently withdrew his membership from the American Medical Association in protest over their position regarding a public health care option. Then we will hear a special report on Montana Senator Max Baucus, the chair of the Senate Finance Committee. Baucus is the Senate’s point man on health care reform. A new article in the Montana Standard finds that Senator Baucus has received more campaign money from health-and-insurance industry interests than any other member of Congress.
