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.

An Interview with Jeff Sharlet

Community Bridge welcomes Rolling Stone and Harper's contributing editor, Jeff Sharlet, as we look into one of the most powerful Christian fundamentalist movements in America -- an organization most people have never heard of and one that claims three current Kansas politicians among its membership: Sen. Brownback, Rep. Tiahrt and Rep. Moran, along with other members of congress, corporate leaders, generals and foreign heads of state. But unlike James Dobson's Focus on the Family or Pat Robertson's electoral armies, this group, which calls itself "The Fellowship" or "The Family," works behind-the-scenes with fundamentalism not as an end in itself but as a means to an empire "with Washington its Christian capitol." Sharlet is the first and only journalist to have lived with this secretive group to write from inside its walls. In his penetrating and explosive new book, "The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power," Sharlet brings to light the untold story of Christian fundamentalism's most elite organization.
