7/12/07 Ralph Nader

We’re back!  Sorry about the break in blogging.  Normal operations to resume.

Didja hear our interview with Ralph Nader today?  What do you think?  Crusader?  Spoiler? Well, today we had him on as an author.  The book is The Seventeen Traditions.  In this book he takes a look back at the values that shaped his own life and childhood, values such as listening, charity, and patriotism.  An overly sentimental look back, or does this book hold lessons for how we can reinvigorate our civic involvement?

Do you want to meet Ralph Nader?  He will be in Baltimore this weekend at an event sponsored by Red Emma’s.  It will be at St. John’s Church at 2640 Saint Paul Street in Charles Village this Saturday at 1 pm.
