This week on Voices from the Edge, Jo Ann and Dave ask the question "Are the good guys ahead?" Local progressive may be feeling a bit down over the direction of local and state politics lately. City Hall seems more disconnected than ever from the world in which most Portlanders live. Earlier this week, city council voted 4-1 (Commissioner Fritz abstaining) to put a new bond measure before voters for a new communications system and other equipment for the Fire Bureau. With so many city services taking hits - and at least on other proposed bond measure being put on hold because of the economy - should there have been a community discussion about whether this measure could wait?

Portland City Council voted 3-2 this morning to let police unit commanders have a vote in certain cases before the new police review board.  Does this make the new board "structurally flawed" or does it increase accountability as commissioners supporting the change claim?

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/20/10

Air date: 
Tue, 07/20/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
With Joe on vacation, Abe checks in on the fracas between the NAACP and the Teabaggers.

This just in: some members of the Tea Party movement have said racist things in public, and displayed racist slogans and images at public events. This is apparently completely acceptable in conservative circles. What's not acceptable, it seems, is pointing out the public racism when it happens.

A dustup between the NAACP and the Tea Party movement throws the racist streak in modern conservatism into stark, ugly relief. It's the next chapter in a sordid tale that predates our Republic. But the good news? The Tea Party's visible virulence is proof that things are getting better.

Jan Michael Lookingwolf taping today

Jan Michael Lookingwolf was a pleasure to have into the studio today.We were honored to have the 2009 NAMMY artist of the year in to support Native American programming! He played two songs, one on his guitar and the other on his beautiful flute.

On his guitar was a tribal mandala with the word, "UNITY" and his flute was made of oak with a beautiful raven's head carved in it.

Jan talked about his tribal connection, community service, music and mental health to name just a few of the topics we hit on.

You will love what you hear! Tune in to Indian Country to hear Lookingwolf's music and interview on July 23rd.
