Leid Stories – Amid the Clamor for Unity, Clarity Takes A Lethal Hit – 07.11.16

Officials and “responsible” leaders of almost every stripe are calling for unity in the aftermath of a gruesome week that sparked national outrage over back-to-back killings of two African American men by white police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Falcon Heights, Minnesota, and an African American ex-soldier’s revenge shooting of white police officers in Dallas, Texas, that killed five and wounded seven of them, and also wounded two civilians.

It is customary for leaders to sing rousing choruses of the “We-Are-One-America” anthem at times like this—when public thought and action must be managed and controlled. The “unity” plea achieves this through distraction—by changing both the nature and dimension of the national crisis and limiting the people’s power to do anything about it.

Leid Stories discusses why, amid the clamor for unity, clarity about the current crisis is taking a lethal hit.

Behind the $55 Million Verdict: Johnson & Johnson Knew About Talcum Powder Cancer Risks Since the 1970s

Like the tobacco companies a generation ago, Johnson & Johnson and its cosmetics lobby have known about the link between its talcum powder and cancer for 40 years, distorted research about the talcum-cancer connection, and lied to the public about the dangers. The big lie was exposed on Monday when, for the second time in three months, jurors blasted Johnson …

Infectious Myth – Episode 100: Heather Ellis Cucolo on Sex Crimes – 05.03.16

In Episode 100 David Talks to legal professor and defense lawyer Heather Ellis Cucolo about sexual offenses. While it might be difficult for many people to feel any sympathy for people on US sex crimes registers, Cucolo points out that the overboard definition of sex crimes can lead to people being punished for sex crimes they might commit in the future, even though they haven’t yet, and sentences that are clearly too long, and can even lead to life imprisonment through the so-called Civil Confinement procedures, that are supposed to treat people who are not ready to be released at the end of their sentences, but actually just ends up warehousing them for life. In Minnesota, she points out, not a single person has ever been released from Civil Confinement. Find out more about Cucolo’s work at: http://www.mdlpa.net (Mental Disability Law and Policy Associates).

Following the interview David discusses other legal and medical issues. The list of articles cited is here: http://theinfectiousmyth.com/PRN-TIM/100.php

Dahlia Lithwick – Pseudoscience in the Witness Box

The Washington Post published a story so horrifying this weekend that it would stop your breath: “The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000.” What went wrong?

Warrior Connection – 04.17.16

The April 17 edition of Warrior Connection was an incredible discussion about the legendary Bob Dylan and introduction of new Bob Dylan music with Duluth Minnesota Dylan fest director Brad Nelson and Dylan musicologist John Busey in with cooperation of KUMD.org from Duluth Minnesota. John hosts a Dylan music radio program broadcast on KUMD.org that has been ongoing for 25 years. Bob Dylan is still performing, writing, and impacting our culture just as he has done for over 50 years. The version of “Blowing In The Wind” that they played for this program brought tears to our eyes. The impact of Dylan’s music on Vietnam veterans and other generations of warriors is beyond imagination. As discussed each person holds personal and unique memories and perceptions. THAT IS WHAT MAKES DYLAN SO GREAT. Dylan clearly touches the depth of each person’s soul. Thanks to my cousin, children’s author, and poet Bonnie Rokke Tinnes of Bemidji, Minnesota who set this up and celebrated her 48th wedding anniversary doing this broadcast. Co-host Ray Clark tied it together with how Dylan was perceived and danced to during Vietnam combat operations.

Brad and John also introduced two new songs from Duluth Does Dylan
