Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), my friend Roger Simon joins me to discuss his new memoir, Blacklisting Myself: Memoir of a Hollywood Apostate in the Age of Terror. He discusses his career in Hollywood and his history as a liberal activist, and how everything changed after 9/11 and Roger became a national-security conservative. No one tells a story like Roger, and we should have a great time getting a sneak peak of the new book!

In the second half, we talk stimulus packages and Keynesian failures with Dan Mitchell of the Cato Institute!
