I was going to blog today about the story in New York City where the police shot 9 unarmed people in their effort to shoot and kill one armed man. The New York Times even ran it as a front page story, featuring a version of this shocking photo on their paper's first page:
There is so much here to discuss, touching upon many issues in the book.
But then I got a call today from the Huffington Post, and they are devoting coverage
to the Republican National Convention starting tomorrow. One angle
they are taking is policies that Republicans are not talking about (the
"Shadow Convention" or something like that).
One of those policies is
the drug war.
And guess who is being interviewed LIVE (web interview of
course) alongside others including Mr. Michael Steele (former RNC Chairman)??? Yep, me!
