Bob Fest VII
Hard to believe but our 7th Bob Fest is coming fast. Over 30,000 have attended the first six Fests and we expect more than 10,000 on September 6. Check out our revamped site FightingBobFest.org for all the latest.
We are excited to welcome Bill McKibben who wrote the first account, for a general audience, of global warming. The End of Nature is a classic often compared to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring.
Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of Bobby Kennedy's death. How different this country would be had he lived. Just imagine President RFK instead of Richard Nixon. The untimely deaths of JFK, RFK, MLK, Malcolm X, Walter Reuther, Paul Wellstone. Makes one ill to look back, so we must look forward.
No primaries to worry about so MSNBC with Keith is less essential for the moment. On the other hand, Israeli P.M. Olmert is trying to get Bush to bomb Iran before Olmert goes to jail. Yikes!
Our staff is in Minneapolis for the Natioanl Conference for Media Reform--the gift of Nichols and McChesney. Look for their reports next week.
