This Week in New World Notes, radio program #97, Jan. 12:

The Kids Are All Right

Workers' summary

To my surprise, young people today seem sharper, saner, more politically active, and more inspiring than several preceding "generations" of young'uns. Could there be hope for the future? We hear from George Carlin, trying & failing to sound like a pedophobe ... from Mari Oye and Leah Anthony Libresco, two young women in high school who challenged Bush on torture ... and from journalist Johann Hari, reporting from the COP-15 climate conference, on the wisdom & courage of the young protesters.

This week's music (from the musical, Bye Bye Birdie, 1960):

  • The Telephone Hour
  • from Kids!
  • from Fine, Upstanding, ...

Coming Soon

  • January 19 -- Cheap Junk and The Deindustrialization of America -- Welcome to the Third World! (Hope you had your shots!)
  • January 26 -- Lenny Bruce and the Meaning of Obscenity
