I’ve been writing and collecting stories, and they will be archived here indefinitely. I was too busy packing and moving, and then spending the past month on the west coast. I plan to update the site with all the content that is missing here, but there won’t be anything new here.

New projects are coming soon. My next job and next radio show will both begin before the end of summer. Right this second, you can CLICK HERE to see the last ten articles I wrote for Raw Story in May.

Sen. Joe Lieberman told Fox News that he would be hesitant to support the new nuclear treaty with Russia if President Barack Obama doesn’t commit to modernizing the nuclear arsenal. He also perpetuated fears of Iran.

Free speech attorney Marjorie Heins told me in a fascinating exclusive interview that Obama “probably won’t have the courage” to rebuild the liberal wing of the Supreme Court.

With Justice John Paul Stevens retiring soon Republican Senator John Kyl threatened to filibuster if Obama’s choice to replace him is too ideological, for example if he or she stands up “for the little guy.”

And on a totally unrelated note, neoconservative commentator Bill Kristol told Fox News Sunday he believes “it would be better” for the US to attack Iran before Israel does. A reader posted a link to my story on a powerful Guardian article today called The Soldiers’ Burden.

Jeff Abrams of Boise Community Radio and Lupito Flores of KYRS Spokane have teamed up to make the case for financial support of independent, noncommercial radio projects like theirs for the latest newsletter from Social Justice Fund.

Here is an excerpt:

After lifting a decade-long application freeze, the FCC has recently awarded a wave of noncommercial broadcast licenses for grassroots organizations to establish new locally programmed, community-based radio stations across the country. These groups now have a powerful opportunity to use the ubiquitous nature of radio to re-connect communities – giving citizens their voice back and establishing new resources as indispensable as any city park, library or firehouse. Among other benefits, these new facilities will empower listeners and nonprofit groups by expanding awareness and mobilization capacity on local issues such as freedom of speech, women’s issues, cultural identity, arts and humanities, public health, environment, disability awareness, social welfare, and public governance.

Many new licensees have also recently received federal grant funding from the U.S. Department of Commerce to build these facilities. However, these awards are generally tied to a 25% local matching funds requirement.
