Episode 29: The Mother-in-Law of All Debts

Welcome back to LibertyWeek, where your hosts Richard Morrison and Cord Blomquist are happy to slave away in front of hot mikes to bring you the best in news and views. After a brief celebration of twenty-five years of Yuri Andropov being dead, we focus on the 900 billion lb. gorilla in the room, the economic stimulus bill making its way through Congress. Alternate references to it as porkulus, the Stimulus to Nowhere and the Mother of All Debts are also acceptable. Having spent our way through future generations, we take a look at the new e-book reader, the Kindle 2, with a little help from our friends at Ars Technica. Moving on to Scandal Watch, we look into both the faux scandal and the actual conflicts of interest in the herstory of Labor Secretary-Designate Rep. Hilda Solis (D-CA). Finally, we give Michael Phelps some additional support and encouragement in a very special installment of Olympic News.
