The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show
Hosts Abe Proctor and Joe Uris cover many of the key points in Isreal's history, in an effort to understand how and why today's slaughter in Gaza came to be. Of course, several well-spoken listeners offer illumination on some events, and contrasting views on others.
Listener Laurie recommends the book The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan for a riveting story of the relationship between an exiled Palestinian family and the Israeli family that took over their house when they fled.
Joe and Abe welcome former Portlander Penny Allen, who has lived in France for many years. She is in Portland for a showing of her second film, PAYDIRT, at The Northwest Film Center's Whitsell Auditorium at the Portland Art Museum Thursday, January 8th, 7:00 PM. She will introduce the film.
Paydirt, made in 1981, is a time capsule of the Northwest. Set in the lush hills of Newberg, PAYDIRT tells the story of Nancy (Lola Desmond), the great-granddaughter of an Oregon pioneer, who reclaims the family land to start a vineyard and winery. The dirty little secret is that her back-to-the-land fantasy is only possible if she grows a crop that actually generates cash: marijuana. The film features a cameo by David Lett, a pioneering Oregon winemaker. He died in October.
Of course, they discuss a little Politics along the way, and comment on the situation in Gaza.

Joe Uris hosts. The 14th amendment requires states to provide equal protection under the law to all persons. Does that include marriage? Gay marriage? What is marriage? What should the rules be? What are the rights of conservatives? Call in with your opinion.
