Heather says:

As a devotee of the music of Adam Franklin since my early 20s, I was thrilled to have an opportunity to interview him upon the release of Swervedriver's new album, I Wasn't Born To Lose You, their first in over 17 years. This interview also marks my return to radio after a protracted bout of illness with Lyme disease and electrohypersensitivity, combined with a complete lack of diagnosis, which left me to languish for most of a decade.

The Board of Commissioners for Multnomah County has voted to restrict the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, and prohibit the use of e-cigarettes in business places where traditional smoking is already banned.
The ordinance will not exempt vape shops from the smoking ban, a stipulation that several people testifying at City Hall claimed to be unfair due to the need for consumers to try out products within vape shops.
The ordinance will go into effect in thirty days, on April 5th.

Here’s a summarized, paraphrased report that I got from TomDispatch today:
 
Are Pilots Deserting Washington's Remote-Control War?
A New Form of War May Be Producing a New Form of Mental Disturbance
By Pratap Chatterjee (http://www.tomdispatch.com/authors/pratapchatterjee)
 
Drone pilots are quitting in record numbers.  And Code Pink’s appearance at the Nevada Command Center, CREACH, has got to be at least a little unnerving: it is as if their mums or older sisters showed up at their workplace to call them out as the murderers that they are. 15:00 minutes (10.3 MB)
