Mark Brenner reviews the last fifty years of the US auto industry and the reasons for its current crisis, putting it all in the context of US labor history and industrial policy. Brenner is the director of Labor Notes. He talks here with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick.
Well-read Red Frann Michel reminds us of many things President Obama forgot to remember in the traditional Memorial Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery, and concludes with an anti-war poem by Adrienne Rich. You can read her comments, with links to her sources, here.
The Old Mole's Denise Morris talks with David Weissman, co-director of QDoc -- the Portland Queer Documentary Film Festival, coming to Portland's Clinton Street Theater this weekend (May 28-31). Weissman directed the award winning feature documentary, THE COCKETTES (2002). This is the only queer documentary film festival in the US!
Hosted by Frann Michel, this show explores the state of the US auto industry and how it got there, what the President forgot on Memorial Day, Richard Russo's best, and latest, book (according to our reviewer), and Q Doc -- the Portland Queer Documentary Film Festival coming this weekend.
