Laura Flanders speaking engagements and topics for her show Saturday

Saturday on The Laura Flanders Show on Air America (radio):

Saturday, April 2
Death and dying in America are center stage with the Pope and Terri Schiavo. We’ll talk about what we’ve learned about some people’s strange relationship with mortality and we’ll unravel the right-wing conspiracy to make the most of the Terry Schiavo case.
Conservative foundations, resuscitating Operation Rescue and the Vatican’s hidden hand all played a part. Pro-choice protester SUNSARA TAYLOR tells us how she braved the hospice barricades. Investigative journalist FRED CLARKSON describes the religious right’s organizing. Finally, extraordinary jazz singer CHERYL BENTYNE on her new CD featuring the swing and bebop music of Anita O’Day.

As with other listings, make a note, mark it on a calender or bookmark this entry. If you're expecting me to remember to post a reminder, you're setting yourself up for frustration.
The e-mail address for this site is:

And I'll note that between Amy Goodman's Un-Embed the Media tour, The Nation going to New Jersey, Dahr Jamail and Laura Flanders, a lot of areas are being covered. Hopefully something is coming to or near your community. (If you're in the United States. My apologies to our international members. But if you know of events in your area that you would like highlighted, please e-mail the site and we'll get it up. Our international members and our third party members often suffer from my focus on domestic -- United States -- and on the Democratic Party. I apologize for that and encourage you to keep me on my toes -- and to keep me honest.)
