Extractions: Franken File The Prospect talks with Al Franken, star of the new Air America Radio. David Kelly Radio will change forever on March 31: Air America, a liberal, 24-hour talk-radio network launches in seven cities and will be broadcast via satellite and online with Al Franken's show "The O'Franken Factor," airing weekday afternoons from 12:00 to 3:00. The comedian/satirist/political raconteur and author of Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right talks about his new show, the upcoming Presidential elections, and Bill O'Reilly's harrowing death stare. You are going to be one of the few openly liberal voices to hit mainstream radio. What's it like? The question is, can we get people to say: "You know what? I've been listening to Rush Limbaugh for a long time, and I get mad at him, or I agree with him, or usually it's just bluster and I know it is. Let me listen to this." And then they listen to us and they go: "Oh, I see. Ohhh. Ohhhhhhhh." And then stop listening to Rush Limbaugh and start listening to me, then actually make informed decisions based on the truth and not based on bluster. What kind of guests will you have on the show?

Extractions: AL QA'IM, Iraq Early this spring, Cpl. Jason Dunham and two other Marines sat in an outpost in Iraq and traded theories on surviving a hand-grenade attack. Second Lt. Brian "Bull" Robinson suggested that if a Marine lay face down on the grenade and held it between his forearms, the ceramic bulletproof plate in his flak vest might be strong enough to protect his vital organs. His arms would shatter, but he might live. Cpl. Dunham had another idea: A Marine's Kevlar helmet held over the grenade might contain the blast. "I'll bet a Kevlar would stop it," he said, according to Second Lt. Robinson. "No, it'll still mess you up," Staff Sgt. John Ferguson recalls saying. It was a conversation the men would remember vividly a few weeks later, when they saw the shredded remains of Cpl. Dunham's helmet, apparently blown apart from the inside by a grenade. Fellow Marines believe Cpl. Dunham's actions saved the lives of two men and have recommended him for the Medal of Honor, an award that no act of heroism since 1993 has garnered. Flash Traffic Follows » A 6-foot-1 star high-school athlete from Scio, N.Y., Cpl. Dunham was chosen to become a squad leader shortly after he was assigned to Kilo Company, Third Battalion, Seventh Marine Regiment in September 2003. Just 22 years old, he showed "the kind of leadership where you're confident in your abilities and don't have to yell about it," says Staff Sgt. Ferguson, 30, of Aurora, Colo. Cpl. Dunham's reputation grew when he extended his enlistment, due to end in July, so he could stay with his squad throughout its tour in the war zone.

Extractions: The inner circles start smalltwo or three cousins or bowling buddies or bestest friends all the way back to elementary school. If the water's not too cold and the ducks don't sink and no one bursts the balloon, the game begins. Then the inner circles become the teams. Them against us. We're the good guys, they're the bad guys, and we gotta get 'em. One way to get 'em is finding the skeletons in the closet: the scandalous affair or the spouse on a mob payroll or the car trunk full of marijuana police discovered 30 years ago when the candidate was in high school. Those are easy ways to get 'em, but, like boss trump cards, they're not always there when it's your turn to play. So when notice of candidacies becomes official, each team salivates over the opportunity to get the other team's candidate off the ballot by challenging the nominating petitions filed with the Board of Elections. Long before anyone votes, candidates are trying to get their names on as many ballot lines as possible, so their campaign teams end up with multiple opportunities for challenging petitions. If more than two candidates enter a race, there are even more opportunities to challenge petitions, depending on whose chances the additional candidate will hurt.
Extractions: The Los Angeles World Affairs Council promotes greater under- standing of current global issues and their impact on the people of Southern California by inviting authoritative, influential figures in world affairs to Los Angeles, and providing them an open forum. Speech before the Los Angeles World Affairs Council on June 28, 2002 Colonel David Hackworth Author, Steel my Soldiers Hearts Hello. I see a lot of old friends out there around the room and a lot of new friends we'll enjoy in years to come, and I'm very privileged to be here. I'm a native of Santa Monica and I know a lot about terrorism because I was Santa Monica's original terrorist and that's why I joined the service at fourteen. It was either end my terrorism or go to jail. What I'll talk about today, in the next 24 minutes and 11 seconds, is a bit about terrorism, a bit about the war of the future that we're now involved in, and a bit about my wife and my most recent book, which is called Steel My Soldiers' Hearts , so probably a good thing would be to start there. My primer for this whole sounding off and being a little bit different was probably the water of Ocean Park, California, in the 1930s, which was very difficult to get because we hadn't hijacked it from up North at that time. It's that rebel attitude that kind of stuck with me throughout my life.
Extractions: The following is a transcript of a lecture to faculty presented by Frederica Mathewes-Green at the University of Delaware annual leadership breakfast, co-sponsored by Christian Leadership Ministries. While discussing topics for this talk, this one was suggested to me: Does Character Matter? Is character an important component of leadership? Can you be a leader without attention to personal integrity, or private morality? Since that topic was raised some events have brought the question to national prominence. And the way polls read, a lot of Americans seem to think it doesn't matter. Competence is everything. Personal integrity is expendable.

Extractions: Cataract surgery involves removal of the clouded natural lens and implantation of a clear plastic intraocular lens (IOL). This is typically performed on an outpatient basis and seldom requires a hospital stay. Most patients are allowed to return home within an hour or two of their surgery. Typically this is performed with a local anesthetic but is also frequently done using topical anesthesia, simply using anesthetic drops. After the anesthetic, a small 3 millimeter (about 1/8 inch) incision is made in the front of the eye. A fine instrument is placed into the eye to rapidly remove the cataract using ultrasonic waves. The ultrasonic waves liquefy the cataract so that it can be easily aspirated from the eye. After the cataract is completely removed, a tiny intraocular (IOL) lens is placed into the normal position of the natural lens to restore the focusing power of the eye. Because of the small incision size used in modern cataract surgery, sutures are almost never required. Most patients are able to resume most of their normal activities within a few days of their surgery. Recovery is usually complete in 3 to 4 weeks. Typically, antibiotic and anti-inflammatory drops are prescribed during the post-operative period to prevent infection and speed recovery. [Source: See link above.

Extractions: Neal Adams is on the press! Pure comic goodness. DC saw the vision Neal was striving towards and rightly pulled out all the stops to let Neal make the last two prestige volumes worth every cent! A vision not powered by nostalgia, since Neal reasoned that a fan could spend his fifty five dollars buying the original, yellowed newsprint if he wanted nostalgia, but powered by Neal's own quest to fix what Neal knew he penciled, with Neal lighting it the way he first envisioned it! What stories are going to be unveiled in this second volume? Ghost of the Killer Skies- besides Neal's obvious talents, one of the hidden pleasures Neal has is when he gets to 'ghost' on a strip or comic without accolades, usually to help a fellow artist out. Here he puts those skills to the test when he shows how well he studies and honors Joe Kubert by presenting Denny's story where Batman meets Enemy Ace, in a Kubert homage-style! Three MAN-BAT stories- Man-bat was a concept first created by Neal, even writing the outline of the first story. What followed were the three books scripted by Frank Robbins, writer and artist of the comic strip "Johnny Hazard". Frank was one of Neal's boyhood heroes. The scripts gave Neal a chance to illustrate real, bat-like forms in poses that are copied over and over by other artists, to this day. Neal collected photos of bats and how they fly, using them for poses and inspiration behind Man-Bat's physique and persona. Now, years later with a simple upgrading of color, the still outstanding work is accented.

Extractions: The Speech I Want to Hear How to survive a nuclear war with just a hat June 08, 2004 Howard Rheingold ( Smart Mobs ) gave an informal lunchtime talk at the Berkman Center. Dave Winer recorded it and has posted the mp3 . It was, of course, a terrific session; I am a huge fan. Howard isn't optimistic ("Who can be these days?") but he is hopeful. He's working on establishing an inter-disciplinary study of cooperation. Two little things I learned, besides having my Big Picture adjusted: First, the phrase "critical thinking" is considered by large parts of the country as a code word for communism. Second, Howard said that in blogging, we're treaching one another how to think critically. He didn't elaborate, but I take him to mean that by commenting and counter-blogging, we're learning how to put an argument together and how to take one apart, how to evaluate sources, etc. Nice insight. 02:58 PM Comments (4) TrackBack (1) Threadorati Scott Kirsner is blogging the Boston Ideas conference.

Extractions: Main "I've never been on InstaPundit. I don't even know what that is." So claims my old favorite, Jodi Wilgoren. (Via InstaPundit .) The first part of the statement "never been on" may in the strictest and most literal sense be true, but " not knowing what that is? Come on, Jodi! This latest display of "ignorance" is downright cute. Coy. Genuinely endearing. But cuteness aside, there is such a thing as objectivity in journalism. Considering the prominence of Glenn Reynolds, as well as Ms. Wilgoren's (and her family's) stated interest in tracking what's said about her in the blogosphere, I think either she's either not reading the links carefully enough (as unlikely as it would be unprofessional), or else she's just pretending not to notice. Is the latter the case? Deliberately concealed ignorance passed off as objective disinterest? I'm not sure whether to call that journalism, but it's certainly professional NOTE: While I don't have time to start a Jodi Wilgoren fan club, I have devoted two posts to her ( here and here ), because I know talent when I see it, and I think she may be the next Maureen Dowd.
Extractions: Here's the Deal by Hank Shaw Editors Note: In this new edition of Heres the Deal, the author begins by acknowledging the die-hard determination of the Feminism Bashers of America (FBA). Then he caves to the pressure by offering up a sensational, insiders expose of the worlds biggest civil rights movement. He hopes it will help him land a cushy FBA speaking gig. In the interests of journalistic fairness, however, he does manage to sneak in a brief mention of a couple of minor contributions that seem to have escaped the notice of the FBA.

Extractions: Main Virginia Postrel wonders at Front Burner why people in Dallas talk so much during movies . It's true that the good people of Dallas are bad at zipping their lips during the feature and equally bad at forseeing that taking a four year old to see Return of the King (a three and a half hour movie) might prove problematic for other movie-goers. But my holiday trip last week showed a much more pressing problem in Big-D: Dallas, more than any city I've seen in the last several years, has embraced the fashion track suit with alarming zeal. Granted, there are areas of New Jersey in which I'm told the Paulie Walnuts look is indeed in fashion, but there is seriously no reason for folks to be running around Dallas, Texas looking like capos in the Soprano crew. (No offense to a member of my family who may or may not have recently looked like he or she was going to go and whack somebodythat was appropriate use of a track suit.) And even more distressing is the female fashion track suit inspired by one Jennifer Jopez and furnished by designer Juicy Couture.

Extractions: dd Are You a Threat to Liberty? by Burton S. Blumert I remember reading somewhere that the average American male thinks about sex every 30 seconds. During my first months in the US Air Force, back in Korean War days, the Jewish chaplain addressed our small group and advised that it wasnt going to be easy. We would be reminded of our "Jewishness" almost every waking hour. He was right. It was occasionally negative, but mostly good-natured bantering, and every airman, regardless of background, got his share. There were times when the mental sexual imagery whirred along like a continuous motion picture rather than a clip every 30 seconds, and "Jewishness" ebbed and flowed with time and location. Most often, it was the folks encountered that brought it to the fore. Weiss, Sobran, and Me Frankly, I hadnt been thinking about sex or Jewishness for quite a while until I read Philip Weisss "Jews in Bushs Cabinet? Dont Hold Your Breath" (
