When Homer Simpson joins in, you know you’ve gone viral. Although the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised awareness about the disease and a lot of money, there’s so much we still don’t know about it – thus the need for a campaign like this one.

We know that history tends to repeat itself. Today is the 51st anniversary of the March on Washington, which brought us Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I Have A Dream” speech.

But you have to wonder how much anger was simmering, how much people were already hurting from decades of building racial tensions and the fact that so many of them are hurting financially. I don’t often […]

  As evidenced by the events unfolding in Ferguson, MO over the past 10 days, there’s a lot wrong with America. Some of the problems are within the president’s authority to fix. Thomas Frank  joined me in the last half-hour of today’s show to talk about the three he outlined in his latest piece at […]

…the more they stay the same. The photographer who shot that iconic photo at the top of the page was arrested last night in Ferguson, MO. Scott Olsen, a photojournalist for Getty Images, has brought the reality of what’s happening in Ferguson to the rest of the world via his amazing photos, many of which […]

  The more things change, the more they stay the same. Last night, the peace in Ferguson, MO was once again shattered by a standoff between police and protesters. According to the police, provocateurs in the crowd fired guns and threw Molotov cocktails at the line of police. According to protesters (as well as media […]
