Near-Deadly Error: An interview with exonerated death row inmate Juan Melendez-Colon
 
It is hard to imagine spending over 17 years on death row for a crime you did not commit. Juan Melendez-Colon did just that following his 1984 conviction and sentencing to death in the killing of Auburndale, FL beauty salon owner Delbert Baker.

Mystical Music of the Middle East – Concert for Unity

I’m thrilled to help bring the Yuval Ron Ensemble back to Portland next week. The Yuval Ron Ensemble uses sacred music from the three Abrahamic faiths to make musical bridges between people of different cultures, to help prepare hearts to hear a message of tolerance and peace. The music is electrifying, and the multi-ethnic and multi-religious ensemble makes an artistic statement for Peace and Unity.

An interview of Yuval from last spring is on the KBOO website at www.kboo.fm/portlandyiddishhour  ...

The Obama administration issued its Nuclear Posture Review today. The position paper includes a plan to revamp the existing nuclear arsenal.
It also includes an investment of ten billion dollars over the coming decade into the construction of nuclear weapon production facilities.
