Great Lines from Our Parents
Your parents had some pithy expressions that you heard growing up, right? They meant nothing to you when you heard them, right? But now they do. What are they? Dennis offers a few of his own ("you'll turn off the lights when you have to pay the electric bill") and then listeners make their contribution.
A History of Slavery
Guest: Ira Berlin, distinguished professor at University of Maryland and author Generations of Captivity: A History of African-American Slaves.
Bombing in Jakarta, Indonesia
Muslim fundamentalists want to destroy the Indonesian economy. And they don't
care who they murder in the process – Westerners or Indonesians. But it's not
by accident they bombed a hotel owned by an American company. This was essentially
an attack on America. Also: Dennis spends the first half hour continuing his
discussion with Professor Berlin on the history of slavery in America.
