Short Description: 
Every now and then, we get one right. The 9th Circuit Court overturns California's gay marriage ban.

In a nod to outmoded notions like equality and inalienable rights, the Ninth Circuit Court overturned California's ban on gay marriage last week. As some radio hosts have observed, injustice and iniquity endure, but there has been an inexorable march in America toward a condition of more freedom, more justice, more equality. We're not fully equal yet, folks, but we just got a little more equal. Reaction from the right has been predictable.

And there's homework! Verizon and Google are on the verge of striking a deal with the FCC that would effectively end Internet neutrality. This would usher in an age where Internet providers would be able to give preferential treatment -- in the form of speed and access -- to the content of their choice, ending the grass-roots populism that has characterized the Web to date.

So call the White House comment line, 202-456-1111, and tell them to keep the Internet neutral and free. While you're at it, call Nancy Pelosi (202-225-0100) and Harry Reid (202-224-3542) and tell them the same thing. Or, sign the petition.

Last June, Pokey Lafarge and the South City 3 performed live in our studios on the first day of Summer. Since then they have continued touring the country and ended up appearing on stage at this year's Newport Folk Festival. (Their performance can be heard at the NPR music website) From Newport they flew to England for a tour of the United Kingdom and a stopover in Denmark to perform at the Tonder Festival.

But before they took off, Fortunato was able to get Pokey on the telephone for a quick interview. Asking about the folk festival, his love for early 20th century jazz, blues and country music, and how he got interested in performing.
