This just in: Kevin Bracken, the Australian labor leader who just spoke out for 9/11 truth, will be making a cameo appearance on this show!!
First hour: Mike Palecek, author of Camp America and twelve other books, most of which are hilarious, mordant, it-only-hurts-when-I-laugh novels. (The others are politically-charged nonfiction.) Mike has gone to prison as a peace protester, run for Congress as a peace candidate, and repeatedly given the world a piece of his mind in his unique writings. I’ve called him “Iowa’s Kilgore Trout” – but that’s unfair to Mike, who has more of a social conscience than “Trout”. Also, Mike has never stooped to publishing his masterworks in disreputable magazines. Finally, please note that Mike is my kind of 9/11 truth-teller: he uncompromisingly utters the unspeakable with wit, verve, and flat-out take-no-prisoners panache.
Second hour: Tod Fletcher, assistant to Dr. David Ray Griffin. Tod is standing in for Dr. Griffin, who is recovering from a serious illness, for a discussion of DRG’s latest book Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee’s Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory (read my review here).
Cognitive Infiltration is not only brilliant, but perhaps the best of DRG’s books to hand to an intelligent non-9/11-aware person (if any such still exist). Be sure to include a printout of Sunstein’s article “Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures.” If reading Dr. Griffin’s book alongside Sunstein’s preposterous article doesn’t convince your friend that the official version of 9/11 (like its most prestigious defender, Cass Sunstein) stinks to high heaven…it’s time to find a new friend whose brain cells are still firing.
