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.

Sierra Club update on coal and Robert Coen on "Anthrax War"

Community Bridge opens with Stephanie Cole of the Kansas Sierra Club returning to discuss the continuing efforts to block the construction of a coal-fired power plant in southwest Kansas. Cole bring us up-to-date on the topic and discuss what concerned people can do to help in the fight.

Then we connect via telephone with Bob Coen, co-director of the film Anthrax Wars, that will be shown in Manhattan on September 8th and 9th. Coen is a filmmaker, journalist and war correspondent whose work has always focused on uncovering hidden truths. Anthrax War looks at what happened following the 2001 anthrax attacks in the US and the spread of research labs working with germ warfare pathogens - something that is outlawed world-wise through a treaty that the US has signed. His interview continues in Part 2 of this week's show.
