With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

CAPITALISM, IS IT RUINING THE EARTH?

  • My son Julian is visiting for Thanksgiving and it has been great to see him again.  Last night we went to his favorite lobster restaurant on Bailey's Island.  The wind was blowing like crazy and it was cold as hell.  Very few people were in the restaurant, tourists being long gone, and we got a table nearest to the wood stove.  During the car ride to the restaurant and all during dinner we had a lively discussion about capitalism vs communism.
  • Tonight Julian will be on the radio show that Peter Woodruff and I do at Bowdoin College's WBOR from 6:00-8:00 pm (EST).  The topic for the show is "Capitalism, Is it ruining the Earth?"  Julian is a debate coach so he will be making the case that indeed capitalism is in fact killing life on the planet.  It's rather difficult to argue with that point.  You can listen live online by clicking here and then looking for the yellow button.
  • In the morning Julian heads overseas where he will be coaching debate for the next while.  Should be an exciting trip for him.  We will miss him.
