Joe Uris is alone today, and covers several topics of interest. First up, Joe talked about the proposed (and potentially devastating) natural gas pipeline thru our farms and wilderness. He also covered the recent murder of Dr. Tiller, a Women's Health Professional. He talked about the right wing's smear campaign against Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor.
One of this week's topics for discussion was the recent murder ofDr. Tiller, a Women's Health Professional that provided abortions when they were needed.

Someone called in, identified himself as "Joe", and threatened to kill Joe Uris for bringing the topic to the table.
The threat and obscenity did not go out over the air, as the FCC would not allow that, but it is included here to foster discussion.
America means freedom, and nothing says freedom more than the freedom of health care... A major health care lobby gives us reasons to be against single-payer universal health care and for the profit-driven system that we have now.
