Interview with Walter Mosley & latest book Little Green

Join me in a delightful conversation with Walter Mosley on Thursday May 16, 2013 from 800AM-8: 30AM to discuss his latest book Little Green and the return of Easy Rollins! Walter Mosley is a New York City-based author, whose 37+ book literary career goes back to 1990′s Devil in a Blue Dress. That novel kicked off a series revolving around detective Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins — a Black resident of the Watts section of Los Angeles, whose continuing story begins in 1948, and (with the May 2013 release of his 12th story, Little Green) has progressed to 1967. Mosley also created the character of ex-convict Socrates Fortlow, the modern-day protagonist of Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned, and two other novels. Both Rawlins and Fortlow were adapted for the screen in the 1990s.

As you may remember on January 21, 2010, with its ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled by the U.S. Constitution to buy elections and run our government. Human beings are people; corporations are legal fictions.

No on 26-151 interview with Kellie Barnes

Voters have received the Voters pamphlet and will get their ballots in the next few days. One of the biggest issues facing voters on May 21, 2013 is the issue of fluoridating water. Measure 26-151-ask voters ”Shall Portlanders fluoridate its drinking water supply”. Both sides of this debate were invited to participate in this conversation, unfortunately the pro-side didn’t respond. I will talk with Kellie Barnes, a local small business owner and a volunteer with Clean Water Portland on the No on 26-151 campaign. Have you decided? What questions do you have about fluoridation? Is it safe for food and pets? What questions do you have for the pro side? Let us know your thoughts! Join Kellie and I tomorrow morning from 8:30AM-9:00AM and join the conversation on Voices from the Edge.

Earthquakes in Portland? Since when?!

Portland Prepared

The Pacific Northwest has long been an area stricken by earthquakes and tectonic forces.  The problem is... no one thought to Google that information as they were building cities along the entire West coast, 200 years ago.  Then earthquakes started to level the cities of California in the 1800's and, in the early 1950's, Portland learned that we were also in the same boat.

It's no longer a case of 'if' it will happen, but 'when' and now that we know that, what we choose to do about our own personal preparedness can determine how well we will fare in the days after the next 'event of note'.
