It’s double the fun on the AM dial, as “The David Goldstein Show” officially expands to two nights a week! Join me tonight from 7PM to 10PM on Newsradio 710-KIRO. I like to go with the flow, so things could change, but here’s what I have lined up for tonight’s show:
7PM: Rail-to-trail or Rail nor Trail? Is King County Executive Ron Sims’ proposal to acquire Burlington Northern’s Renton-Snohomish rail corridor a clever subterfuge to build commuter rail on the line, or a clever subterfuge to kill it? Rail booster (and former Seattle mayoral candidate) Al Runte joins me in the studio to argue for commuter rail now, while Sims’ spokesman Sandeep Kaushik calls in to defend his boss’s proposal.
8PM: Is the US conducting an illegal war in Iraq? Daniel Ellsberg of Pentagon Papers fame joins me by phone to discuss the case of Lt. Ehren Watada, and the state of the US war in Iraq. Ellsberg is in town to testify at the Citizens Hearing on the Legality of U.S. Actions in Iraq being held this weekend in Tacoma; he is most recently the author of SECRETS: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers.
Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).
Join me Sunday night at 7PM when I’ll be talking to state Sen. Rosa Franklin about her bill to enact a state income tax.
