If We Had Guns That Shot Chocolate



[COMMENT]I think all the shows this week did a great job covering all the scandals. But there is soo much information and disinformation out there, and its very hard to get a handle on all of it. It becomes more and more evident that this culture is about how can we steer our agenda? How can we make what we think is right, happen? How can we get rid of people we don't like, because we know better? How can we change the world for what we think is better? How can we get money from people who don't deserve it and give to people we think do? How can we spy on our enemies without anyone knowing? How can we break the law and feel ok about it, because it's for a bigger cause, our cause? How can we get people to do things behind the scenes so we can appear not to be connected to it? How can we get up in front of the American people and say we are just as angry as you are knowing it's a lie? How can we fundamentally transform America without really telling you what that means?

Scandals such as these make people less trusting and do damage that will last generations. When people that we elect to office thwart the law and skirt the truth and show the American people that they are willing to do whatever they want to further there own agenda it damages all of us, deeply.

100th anniversary of the birth of [Woody Herman]. 8 min story by Fresh Airs' [Kevin Whitehead]. I grew up hearing my Uncle say "[Woody Herman] for President", he loved this man. Growing up in a music loving home, hearing this music, and how much my parents went wild for it was great. This music swings, and swings hard. [Woody Herman] is an important part of the history of American music. Woody's final resting place is at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery next to a sweeping and very peaceful green lawn and pond.
