We've got good news from Nevada, this weekend!
And as always, a one-hour version of last weekends's show is available for podcast at The Nation's website:
It's all on RadioNation with Laura Flanders this weekend on Air America Radio.

Let me talk about the podcast mentioned above because there's some confusion from two members who don't listen to podcasts. You can go to the website and you can listen. You don't have to podcast to listen to the one-hour version available at The Nation website. Or maybe you do. Dallas is checking links for me and he can't pull up RadioNation. It's there on the page, he clicks and waits and waits. So though no Blair on Facts of Life, I had a brilliant idea, Air America Place but . . . Dallas just checked and there last archived broadcast is from February 5th. Well, there's always the traditional ways to listen to the full broadcasts when they air on Saturdays and Sundays: via broadcast radio (if there's an AAR in your area), via XM Satellite Radio (channel 167) or listen online. And I actually do listen to Podcasts. It's not that hard. I'd recommend you download Juice on your computers. (That's my personal recommendation. Not C.I.'s or the recommendation of the community.) It's free software and you can listen on your computer to podcasts with it. You can also use it to listen on an iPod but you don't need one to listen to a podcast. But the point is, listen! Thanks to Dallas for hunting down links and if there are typos in Ruth's entry that just posted, they are my typos. To get that up, Ruth dictated it to me. Hold me accountable (like I'll care), not Ruth.
