Classic TEMS: Kerry Picket, Amy Alkon, Andy McCarthy

posted at 1:00 pm on November 27, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

No show for today, as we’re all taking it easy on the holiday weekend.  I’m actually trying to get over a tryptophan hangover, but I’ll probably find a reason to get out of the house today for a while.  Since I wrote the book review for Amy Alkon’s book I See Rude People, and since the show from eight days ago may have been one of my best ever, I thought that those who may have missed it will want another look.  Kerry Picket of the Washington Times had an excellent story about Chuck Schumer’s flip-flop on military tribunals, and Andy McCarthy of National Review — perhaps the nation’s leading expert on trying terrorists — offered his thoughts on the same question.  And of course, Amy’s segment was terrific, and those interested in her book will be even more interested after watching it.

I’ll have the chatroom enabled for today, so that all TEMS chatizens not at the mall can commiserate with each other and discuss the day’s events! Jazz Shaw of The Moderate Voice and The Monster moderate the chat, for those who are registered with Ustream!

I can understand Amy’s problems with the LAPD. I had my 1977 Toyota Celica coupe (nothing like a Pink Rambler, but of equal worth to its owner) stolen in Culver City from in front of a restaurant just outside of Mar Vista. I called CCPD and they came out and took a report. Three days later, I got a call from an LAPD detective. “You’re car wasn’t stolen. It was parked in front of the Mar Vista projects in the middle of the street and was towed for illegal parking.”

The interior of the car had been stripped. The contents of the trunk (including a baby seat) was missing. I had to dispute a parking ticket.

I beg of you, please read Huston Smith’s Why Religion Matters:
The Fate of the Human Spirit in an Age of Disbelief

It thoroughly covers the current debate of “Scientism”,
“World Views”,
and The Scopes Trial aka
“Inherit the Wind”‘s whoreywood

Be not slothful…
