Memorial Day: Let's Talk War & Soldiers

It is common now for many Americans to say "Thank You for your Service" when they meet or even just encounter a person in Military Service. When I hear someone is in the military, I always want to say,  " Oh I am so sorry". I hate war and know it twists and damages even the conquering forces. How do you react when you meet a soldier? Does the knee jerk or even the genuine, "Thank You" help keep our endless wars going? Does  support of the individual soldiers lead to  unquestioning support of the military and the silence of the Anti- War movement ?  Or is it only what they are due, no matter how you feel about war.

Immigrants who’ve lived in the United States for years, are being detained and deported at unprecedented rates. Thousands languish in detention centers—often torn from their families—for months or even years. Deportees are returned to violent Central American nations or unceremoniously dropped off in dangerous Mexican border towns. Despite the dangers of the desert crossing, many immigrants will slip across the border again, stopping at nothing to get home to their children.

Host Cecil Prescod interviews Noah Dundas and Brian Crosby-Payne  about a grass roots effort to save the only warm water therapy pool in the Portland area.

In 1992  Dorothy Torgler, a foundational pillar for Providence Hospital, through a charitable contribution, made possible a therapy pool. It serves elderly and children, people with cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, post-surgical patients, individuals with autism, and more. Warm water adaptive exercise programs help alleviate the pain of arthritis and increase range of motion for stroke patients, those recovering from injury, and those who are physically challenged by disabilities.

The hospital plans to convert it for a day surgery facility (one is already located at the hospital). When the pool users found out about this plan, they began to organize to save the pool. In a matter of a couple of weeks more than 500 people have signed their petition to save the pool.

Author Anthony Swofford on his new memoir HOTELS, HOSPITALS, AND JAILS

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 06/11/2012

Hosts Celeste Carey and Cecil Prescod interview former Portlander Anthony Swofford, author of Jarhead, a memoir of his time in the marines. They'll discuss his new book Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails: A Memoir, a journey of despair and redemption chronicling the years after his military service in the Gulf War.

In Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails, Swofford describes his search for identity, meaning, and reconciliation with his dying father in the years after he returned from serving as a sniper in the Marines. Adjusting to life after war, he watched his older brother succumb to cancer and his first marriage crumble, leading him to pursue an excessive lifestyle in Manhattan that brought him to the brink of collapse. Consumed by drugs, drinking, expensive cars, and women, Swofford lost almost everything and everyone that mattered to him.

In the memoir Swofford describes how he connected with own father and began to understand that becoming a father himself might be the ultimate measure of his manhood.

Anthony Swofford was born on Travis Air Force Base in 1970. He joined the marines at age 18 and fought in the 1990-91 Gulf War with a scout/sniper platoon in the 2nd battalion of the 7th Marines. He left the marines in 1992 and held jobs in restaurants, banks, and shopping malls as well working a long stint as a union warehouseman. In 1999 he graduated from UC Davis with his BA in English and proceeded to graduate writing studies at the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where he was a Teaching Writing Fellow and later a Michener-Copernicus Fellow. His first book, Jarhead, a memoir of his time in the marines, came out in the winter of 2003. A film adaptation directed by Sam Mendes was released in 2005. Exit A, his novel of military life in Japan during peace time, was published in 2007. His memoir Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails will be published in June 2012. He has taught at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and Lewis and Clark College. He is married to the photographer and writer Christa Parravani-Swofford.

Prosecution Complex: America’s Race to Convict and Its Impact on the Innocent

program: 
More Talk Radio
program date: 
Mon, 05/14/2012

Hosts Cecil Prescod and Celeste Carey speak with Daniel Medwed, author of "Prosecution Complex: America’s Race to Convict and Its Impact on the Innocent."

American prosecutors are asked to play two roles within the criminal justice system: they are supposed to be ministers of justice whose only goals are to ensure fair trials, whatever the outcomes of those trials might be—and they are also advocates of the government whose success rates are measured by how many convictions they get. Because of this second role, sometimes prosecutors suppress evidence in order to establish a defendant’s guilt and safeguard that conviction over time.

Daniel S. Medwed, a nationally-recognized authority on wrongful convictions, has wrestled with these issues for nearly fifteen years, ever since he accepted a job as a public defender with the Legal Aid Society of New York City. Combining his hands-on experience in the courtroom and his role as a teacher and scholar in the classroom, Medwed shows how prosecutors are told to lock up criminals and protect the rights of defendants. This double role creates an institutional “prosecution complex” that animates how district attorneys’ offices treat potentially innocent defendants at all stages of the process—and that can cause prosecutors to aid in the conviction of the innocent. Ultimately, Prosecution Complex is not intended to portray prosecutors as rogue officials indifferent to the conviction of the innocent, but rather to explain why, while most prosecutors aim to do justice, only some hit that target consistently.

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
