It's Saturday which means the first of two broadcasts (Saturday and Sunday, 7:00-10:00 pm EST) of RadioNation with Laura Flanders. From an e-mail forwarded by Martha (and you can go to Laura Flanders website and sign up for the e-mailed heads up to each week's programs) comes the news that Flanders is on location this weekend:
This weekend, RadioNation marks the anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita by returning to Mississippi and Louisiana with two must-listen broadcasts.
On Saturday, we'll be in Gulfport-Biloxi for a special town meeting sponsored by the NAACP and OXFAM. We'll hear from residents, activists, Danny Glover, NAACP president Bruce Gordon, OFXAM president Ray Offenheiser and many others.
On Sunday, we'll be in New Orleans at the People's Hurricane Relief Fund. We'll bring you sounds from protests, commemorations and hear from people who refuse to let this city die. It's all on RadioNation with Laura Flanders this weekend on Air America Radio.
All that and Danny Glover. We'll also note that Laura Flander's program (originally titled The Laura Flanders Show, now known as RadioNation with Laura Flanders) will be on the fall Air America Radio schedule and it will be only one of three orignal shows that started when the network did and will still be on the fall schedule. (We'll note that The Randi Rhodes Show will also be returning and will skip the third show for obvious reasons.) You can listen (live) to RadioNation with Laura Flanders over the airwaves if you have an Air America Radio station in your area or if you have XM satellite radio and you can also listen to it online. In addition, a podcast is available that combines Saturday and Sunday's show online (usually goes up on Tuesday or Wednesday).
Quickly, China's Xinhau reports that a home in Baghdad was attacked and at least four family members were shot dead and eleven more were wounded. And the AP notes that two sisters who worked as translators for the British consulate were shot at in Basra today, one was killed the other wounded.
We'll close by posting Wally's "THIS JUST IN! BULLY BOY POUTS, DICK LAUGHS!" and Cedric's "Tricky Dick in the (White) House again (humor)" joint post:
BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIX MIX - DC & MAINE.
THIS JUST IN!
BULLY BOY POUTS, DICK LAUGHS!
MUST CREDIT BULLY BOY PRESS & CEDRIC'S BIX MIX.
AS THE LEAST WORKING MAN IN THE GOVERNMENT GEARED UP FOR HIS LATEST VACATION, HE WAS A GIDDY BULLY BOY.
HE WOULD BE IN MAINE AND HE COULD GO FISHING -- JUST THE THOUGHT OF KILLING SOMETHING GOT HIM GIDDY.
VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY HAD TOLD HIM THEY NEEDED TO TALK ABOUT SOMETHING BEFORE BULLY BOY LEFT FOR VACATION.
DICK CHENEY FLASHED THE ASSOCIATED PRESS STORY AT HIM ENTITLED
"ARMY OFFICER RECOMMENDING TRIAL FOR FORT LEWIS SOLDIER WHO REFUSED TO GO TO IRAQ."
LOOKING AT THE HEADLINE AND PHOTO, BULLY BOY GIGGLED, STAMPED HIS FEET, AND LET A LITTLE PEE LOOSE IN THE FRONT OF HIS BVDS.
DICK CHENEY SUPPRESSED A CHUCKLE AS HE ASKED THE BULLY BOY IF HE READ THE ARTICLE.
SHAKING HIS HEAD NO, BULLY BOY BEGAN SCANNING QUICKLY AND READING ALOUD: "HIS RECOMMENDATION GOES TO WATADA'S BRIGADE COMMANDER, COL. CYNTHIA MURPHY, AND TO LT. GEN JAMES DUBIK, FORT LEWIS' COMMANDER, WHO HAS FINAL SAY ON WHETHER WATADA SHOULD STAND TRIAL, MATTHEWS SAID. WHILE EXAMINING THAT ISSUE, COL. MURPHY AND LT. GEN. DUBIK WILL ALSO BE REVIEWING THE CHARGES OF DESERTION AGAINST THE BULLY BOY WHO WENT AWOL FROM THE TEXAS NATIONAL GUARD AND NEVER FULFILLED HIS CONTRACTUAL COMMITTMENT. COL. MURPHY AND LT. GEN. DUBIK COULD RECOMMEND ANYTHING FOR THE BULLY BOY FROM DISMISSAL OF THE CHARGES TO A GENERAL COURT-MARTIAL."
"THEY COULD COURT-MARTIAL ME?" BULLY BOY ASKED.
"AFRAID SO," DICK CHENEY SAID STARING AT THE CARPET.
"OH MY GOD! OH MY JESUS! OH MY ROVE!" BULLY BOY EXCLAIMED PACING MADLY. "WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?"
"NOTHING YOU CAN DO," DICK CHENEY SAID. "JUST TRY TO ENJOY YOUR VACATION."
AS BULLY BOY CONTINUED PACING, DICK CHENEY WALKED OUT OF THE OVAL OFFICE, CLOSED THE DOOR.
"DID HE FALL FOR IT?" ASKED AN EXCITED CONDI RICE.
"DOES A DIEBOLD MACHINE REGISTER REPUBLICAN VOTES?" DICK CHENEY REPLIED.
HIGH-FIVING, THE TWO BURST INTO LAUGHTER AS CONDI RICE CONGRATULATED DICK CHENEY ON ANOTHER "MOST EXCELLENT" PRACTICAL JOKE.
