The Senate has passed A bill that allows the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco, including new dissolvable tobacco products packaged to look like mints or candy. It’s being called the strongest anti-tobacco measure since the U-S Surgeon General said smoking causes lung cancer more than 40 years ago.

The U.S. House of Representatives took one more look at legislation that would give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulatory authority over cigarettes and other tobacco products from ingredients to labeling and marketing. KBOO reporter EmMarie Badio has more.

Air date: 
Tue, 06/16/2009 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
A survey of the conservative zeitgeist yields stupidity and murder

While Joe takes a vacation, Abe takes a pass through conservative airspace, and flushes out words and deeds ranging from the merely stupid and offensive to the violent and murderous. Michelle Obama's ancestor? A gorilla! How to stop an abortion doctor from doing his work? Shoot him dead? How to get back at the Jews? Open fire in the Holocaust museum!

Are these incidents connected? Yes, they likely are. But not in the manner you might think. They are the sights and sounds of aggrieved white privilege.
