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
