Audio Interview with William Shirer

I just finished his Berlin Diary so was looking for some of the old broadcasts and found this.

William L. Shirer, author of Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich and volumes of 20th Century Journey: A Memoir of a Life and the Times, speaks with Don Swaim in this 1984 interview about being a radio correspondent in the early days of radio journalism. Shirer tells a truly remarkable story about working for CBS Radio during WWII doing war coverage and trying to get interviews with people like Winston Churchill.

Another Gay Republican Sex Scandal

This is the Senator who said, when referring to Clinton’s sex scandal, “Bad boy, Bill Clinton. You’re a naughty boy.”

Last June, Larry Craig, the Senator who was publicly outed to absolutely no ensuing scandal, was arrested for “lewd conduct” in a men’s room at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. He pleaded guilty on August 8, paid $500, got out of the 10-day jail sentence, and was given a year of probation. His office referred to the incident — and this is all from Roll Call so you can’t accuse us of making this bizarre quote up — as a “he said/he said misunderstanding.” They claim they’ll explain what they mean by this later today, when they come up with a convincing lie.

Michael Vick Finds Jesus

From TMZ:

“I will redeem myself” said Vick, “I have to.”

Vick wasn’t specific about the acts he was sorry for, but declared, “Dogfighting is a terrible thing. I reject it.”

Between apologies to everyone from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank — to all the kids who used to look up to him, Vick declared that he’s found Jesus and has turned his life over to God.
