Veteran White House Reporter Helen Thomas

August 31, 2009

Guest: Helen Thomas

Probably no one alive today has had more substantive interaction with as many Presidents as many times as the “Dean of the White House Press Corps” Helen Thomas, who regularly interrogated 10 Presidents: Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and now Obama.

Rest in Peace, Ted Kennedy

August 26, 2009

The Lion of the Senate tried to live just long enough to achieve universal health care in America, but the demagoguery of the Republicans and the squabbling among Democrats could not get it done before Congressional recess.

After Ted’s brother John died, John’s legacy was used to finally pass one of the most important pieces of legislation in American history which had also been postponed for decades and fought with bloody lies and nasty rhetoric:  the Civil Rights Act.

Perhaps Ted’s death — like his brother’s — can be used as a legacy to finally put the USA on an equal footing with other industrialized nations

To achieve the principle Ted Kennedy fought his entire life for:

No one in America should die of poverty.

My television guest tonight Mary Apick, an award-winning Iranian actress from before the Iranian Revolution, is still a household name in Iran. Today she is an American actor and also a director, producer, and human rights activist.
Mary Apick’s play, Beneath the Veil, showing one night only at the Kennedy Center on October 8, explores the role of women in Islam and Islam in women’s lives.

  • How does the veil protect women?
  • How does the veil oppress women?
  • Should there be freedom to wear the veil?
  • And freedom to take it off?
