Podcasting Jerry Garcia. When I posted these audio files of an ancient interview with Garcia last year, they were just, well, audio files on the web. But now that you are reading them in an aggregator, and we have this trendy nomenclature, well, they are a podcast of an interview with Jerry Garcia.

Speaking of which...I liked GoRadio's first outing. Think how great it will be when they start moving beyond recaps of their stories and give us audio of the source material for those stories -- interviews with musicians, artists, actors, reason video clips can't happen, too...this is very promising stuff.

Ward Churchill likes to compare people to Adolf Eichmann, it's something of a habit. Before he called the people killed in the Twin Towers "little Eichmanns," his target was Emory historian Deborah Lipstadt, of whom he said in 2000, there was "no difference" between "a Deborah Lipstadt and an Adolf Eichmann." Right. Except for the part where Lipstadt took on a Holocaust denier in court, and Eichmann was the architect of the Holocaust.
