“The David Goldstein Show” tonight on News/Talk 710-KIRO

Tonight on “The David Goldstein Show”, 7PM to 10PM on News/Talk 710-KIRO:

7PM: Fire or Ice?
The once fabled Northwest Passage has been open for weeks as the Arctic icecap continues its retreat, and dozens of major American cities are threatened as and Greenland’s massive glaciers prepare to slide into the seas. Meanwhile new science suggests that global warming could shut down or slow thermohaline circulation, triggering a cataclysmic and sudden flip into a new ice age. And yet the ideological deniers continue to ridicule and disparage those of us who give credence to the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change. Mark Sumner, a contributing editor to Daily Kos under the screen name Devilstower, joins me for the hour to discuss past climate shifts, and disturbing new evidence that the Arctic is melting faster than computer models predicted.

8PM: Greenspan on Bush: “The President Sucks” Who’d a thunk?
In his long awaited memoir to be released tomorrow, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan praises President Clinton, criticizes President Bush, the Republicans and their irresponsible tax and spending policies, and makes the not-so-startling claim that “the Iraq war is largely about oil.” So now he tells us.

9PM: Is conservatism a brain disorder?
A controversial new study released this weeks shows that the brains of liberals and conservatives actually work differently, leaving liberals more flexible to responding to unexpected event… thus angering conservative pundits, who had difficulty responding to such an unexpected event. UCLA researcher Marco Iacoboni, one of the paper’s authors, joins me to explain the results.

Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).

    Wow! Sounds like a great show Goldy. Unfortunately, I am straddling the border of Idaho and Washington this evening, with relatively slow internet. I’ll catch the podcast tomorrow.

    (Note to Larry Craig: “straddling the border of Idaho and Washington” wasn’t meant to be some code for cruising.)

    Only 45 degrees in New England today….. wait this doesn’t further global warming…. Nevermind. Sorry for getting off message Goldy.

    Proud To Be An Ass spews:

    So where are you straddling, Darryl? Post Falls? Priest River? Lewiston? Moscow? Potlatch?

    The Big Guy’s Country. Don’t stay too long. You won’t want to come back.

    michael spews:

    Lewiston is home to Bill Hall. Not exactly a good old boy, that Mr. Hall.

    Cross over the state line from Post Falls and your in Ron Simms’s home town. Tom Foley (D) represented the 5th CD for 30 years. State Senator Lisa Brown is the head of the Sate Senate and is from Spokane.

    The growth industries in the inland empire are ones that tend to employ the left, not the right.

    “The Big Guy’s” are all going extinct.

    Michael and Proud,

    I’ve been staying a little south of Coeur d’Alene for a couple of days, and this afternoon went to Pullman. I’ll be heading back tomorrow afternoon.

    I wanted to have dinner in Moscow this evening, but the good places are closed on Sunday. Oh well.

    Proud To Be An Ass spews:


    I Hope you didn’t waste too much time in Worley at the casino. If you missed St. Maries and the shadowy St. Joe, you missed a treat…Harrison is pretty funky, too.

    There is a lot of (mostly forgotten or overlooked) history in Idaho about the loggers and hard rock miners, the Wobblies, the WFM and Big Bill Haywood. Also, check out the essays by Bert Russell. If you like Patrick F. McManus, you’re in his neck of the woods.

    Have a safe journey back.

    #5 — If you are tied to a railroad track and a freight train is heading your way, you will probably die — but that’s only speculation….

    And you are a halfwit. That is not speculation.

    ASSIE Voice: Next time on your show discuss how Al Gore won an Oscar… BTW it didn’t happen…

    By Steve Gorman

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Six months after grabbing Oscar glory for his eco-documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” former Vice President Al Gore collected an Emmy Award on Sunday for his fledgling youth-oriented cable network, Current TV.

    Waaa haaa haaa haaa haaa haaa haaa haaa haaa haaa

    OneMan spews:

    @16: What’s to spin? Looks to me like Rudi has some ‘splaining to do for taking a single remark out of context (and it was a prretty easy-to-defend remark too) and trying to turn it into a campaign issue.


    As usual, the actual news in your links is much less than you make it out to be.

    Thanks for playing, please move along.

    Puddybud spews:

    Dense as Uranium OneMan: Hilary is the voice of MoveOn and now it seems Kos likes her too!

    I played you well. Next!
