Winter Membership Drive: January 26-31

Categories:

Help support listener-supported KBOO Radio by contributing during our one week Winter membership drive.  Nearly 90% of our annual operating revenue comes from individual donors like you.  Your donation is tax-deductible and is how we are able to broadcast such a diverse mix of music and create nearly 5 hours of locally produced news and public affairs content every weekday.

For this drive, we're producing several public affairs specials this week beginning with a look at the economic crisis and providing alternative views regarding solutions (Monday).  On Wednesday, KBOO continues its long-running coverage of the combined issues of global warming and climate change.  However, we're going to focus more on how we can all reduce the amount of carbon we emit through our daily activities.  And then on Friday we'll explore food and agriculture. 

Then to close out the drive, on Saturday you'll want to make sure you stick around the house all morning, because Music from the True Vine will be hosting a 5-hour, live bluegrass performance special.  More details soon...or listen here and then donate here.  And thanks!

JEEZUS! Chapter One

Categories:

Here it is, your free gift for supporting KBOO.  "JEEZUS!" is a self-published book copyright 2007 by Theresa Mitchell.  These posts are intended to boost KBOO Web readership. 

 

By way of introduction:  "Jeezus!" is a parody of "Left Behind."  This is adult content, so be judicious.  In this first chapter, a cruise ship captain encounters difficulties with his libido, as the Rapture apparently begins.  Enjoy.

JEEZUS!”

First, the good news:

"WASHINGTON — President Obama is expected to sign executive orders Thursday directing the Central Intelligence Agency to shut what remains of its network of secret prisons and ordering the closing of the Guantánamo detention camp within a year, government officials said."  --New York Times

But ongoing:

At least 716,760 people have been killed, and
1,397,255 seriously injured in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Actually, we've killed a million in Iraq and displaced two million.

Gaza's death count from Israeli attacks: 1,284. 4,336 wounded. Vast majority were civilians.

And here's the latest on Bushite fascism:

Does Portland Have a Real Solution for its Gang Problem?

Portland has seen 11 gang-related shootings since the Dec. 12 murder of a gang member inside the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. City leaders are calling it a "gang war crisis" and the Portland police want a new coordinated strategy to combat the violence. But the call for action comes when many outreach programs are struggling for funding. Will the city's new effort address the causes or just the symptoms of gang violence? Will the rush to take action create bigger problems like innocent youth getting profiled for gang involvement?

Inauguration Ambient Media Mix

Categories:

I can't simply watch anything anymore, no matter how anticipated or exciting. Such is my musical ADD that I can't listen to anything without mixing it with something else. You know you're a hopeless mix geek when you try to see if you can't plug more than one audio device into your car stereo at once.

So, when my workplace allowed us to watch the inauguration in the conference room, I decided to avail myself of my advanced (and largely unauthorized) A/V setup in my office to enjoy the proceedings in private.

Fixing the Economy: The Right Re-Writes History

Categories:

The free market crowd, hunkered down in the economic rubble created by eight years of the nation following their policies, is desperately searching for ways to be relevant in the post-Bush world. Their answer is to persuade Americans that the biggest failure in recent U.S. history was the New Deal. In recent weeks Fox News has led this charge, with Brit Hume opining that both Left and Right agree with that conclusion (Brit apparently hasn't read any of the columns recently penned by progressive economist Paul Krugman).
