Coffee Table

Here's a new coffee table. With congress in recess there might be less "juicy" stuff but there is still plenty to talk about. What would you like to talk about on the radio show? I'm all ears!(got that one from Prince Charles). Discuss my friends.

Deep Throat

How about Downing Street Memo?

It's hard not to contrast the frenzy that greeted the revelation of a 30-year-old secret with the thudding indifference U.S. media has given the Downing Street Memo. The memo has scarcely been mentioned in the country's leading newspapers, and has been completely ignored by evening network news.
The reasons are numerous, but it adds up to a depressing reminder that Watergate, as reported in 1974, would never be reported today. The same secrecy, paranoia, and demands for absolute loyalty that were the undoing of the Nixon Administration have been used, in our modern media climate, to resoundingly successful effect by the Bush Administration. Media outlets today are far less willing to invest the time and money into investigative journalism, far less willing to rock the boat or risk being tagged with the dread "liberal media" tag.

A Democrat Ventures Into Roswell.

From the Chaves County Democrats:

Roswell, May 26: On Friday, June 3, 2005, U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman will join local Democrats for a breakfast discussion of local needs. The Chaves County Democratic Party will host the event, which will begin at 7:00 AM at the Best Western Sally Port Inn.
"This breakfast marks the first of many such events with our federal, state, and local Democratic officials, as we gear up for the 2006 elections," said Virginia Garcia, county party chair. "We're delighted that Senator Bingaman will be in Roswell to talk about current and upcoming legislative initiatives. We urge all local Democrats to attend – and bring along a friend or two to welcome the senator and share their concerns!"
Tickets are $20 per person, and include J.D.'s "Ultimate Breakfast."

Senator Bingaman will also be on 1230AM on Friday Morning. Probably about 8:45am. I'm hoping he can stay over for the talk show. We're trying.

A New Plan..Hopefully

I guess you call it the good news and the bad news. Bad news; it took them this long to see their "plan", or lack of it, isn't working. The good news; they may be finally climbing off the dime. While they have continually stressed that only wacky people think this should be more like a police action with investigation and strategic hits instead of a global war, whadda you want to bet that is what they decide?

The review marks the first ambitious effort since the immediate aftermath of the 2001 attacks to take stock of what the administration has called the "global war on terrorism" -- or GWOT -- but is now considering changing to recognize the evolution of its fight. "What we really want now is a strategic approach to defeat violent extremism," said a senior administration official who described the review on the condition of anonymity because it is not finished. "GWOT is catchy, but there may be a better way to describe it, and those are things that ought to be incumbent on us to look at."
