Salvador Dali celebrates National Lobster Day

A hodgepodge of interesting stuff.

The show includes a Press Review of oddball stories you may have missed--National Lobster Day, the US claims to have "conquered" Jupiter, and more. David Rovics sings about a huge London riot the US press chose to ignore. Then Noam Chomsky explains some of the ways the US's ruling elite keeps "the 99%" powerless, obedient, and economically insecure.

Plus remarks, here and there, by KD.

Homer Simpson channels Gerard de Nerval

Chomsky audio courtesy of the Ralph Nader Radio Hour for May 20, 2017. Chomsky's recent publications include a film and book, Requiem for the American Dream (2017).

National Lobster Day is September 25, 2017--if Stop and Shop Supermarkets' weekly circular is to be believed.
