Show Notes: Record rainfalls (5-6 inches in 24 hours) followed by record high temperatures (they're saying it may be 80 on Sunday, Oct. 26). Climate change? Nah....

I actually spent a good part of the week immersed in Al Franken's book "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right" -- really fascinating reading, and essential if you are interested in knowing just how stupid certain politicians and journalists think you are. Prove them wrong - read this, then go out and fight for truth, decency, and democracy over lies, slander, and fear-mongering. Really, I'm serious. Democracy doesn't work if people believe blindly without thinking. And as this book shows, many parts of our democracy are broken. We the people need to fix them.

# Our cover song of the week went nuts and multiplied! We had a little set of four (yes, FOUR!) cover songs, including perhaps the only Michael Jackson song you'll ever hear on Spin the Globe.
