Heather Wokusch May 26, 2013

Covers hot topics in the news – or at least those that should be reported in the news but aren’t – and shows how these topics connect in important ways. A list of related URLs can be found (not at the end of the video, but rather) at heatherwokusch(dot)com. PS Never mind the Rollins/Coltrane vinyl next to me; happened to be on the couch, but ‘Tenor Madness’ actually seems to fit these crazy days… ;-)

Have been on a blogging and vlogging hiatus for quite a few years, mainly focusing on working and very occasionally doing TV segments with the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. But with all of this wild news lately, felt a rant (in the video above) was in order… Related URLs are given below.
