Covering the major issues of the day, Jack appears on The Ed Schultz Show on MSNBC this afternoon. Always a lot of fun.
I'm looking forward to an interview with one of the most respected financial journalists in the world, Gillian Tett, of the Financial Times. In her book, Fool's Gold, she looks at how a couple of bankers from JP Morgan came up with the idea and how Wall Street went nuts with it.
Gillian joins me on The Jack Rice Show on Air America Radio on Monday's show from 12-3 p.m. e.s.t. Online at airamerica.com
While this is not my interactive guide, I felt obligated to distribute it as widely as possible and to laugh along with others who might appreciate it.
Jack hosts The Jack Rice Show on Air America Radio across the country live from 12 - 3 p.m. Jack talks politics, currents, law, and some of the weird stories of the day. He also talks to policy makers the world over. And he will take you into warzones worldwide.
Strange to see so many people you know in the same room at the same time and none of them are actually working, and they are all dressed to the nines. That was how is was last night at the Radio and TV Correspondence Dinner last night at the Washington Convention Center in the District. Of course, I should add that many of those that I "know", is by way of TV and radio itself. I listen to and watch them doing the news.
While it had the usual pomp, the Preaident was on his game, giving some hits, taking some hits, and was generally very fun. John Hodgeman of The Daily Show took the stage and convinced us just how much we are all just geeks. Very funnny. In particular, his ongoing conversation with the President as we all watched was very funny indeed. I think even the Pres. liked it.
One war correspondent award was presented by the three surviving girls of David Bloom of NBC who died of complications from reporting in the Iraq war. Incredibly moving to see these three young girls. They were truly amazing. And it also highlights how precious life is. And for me, a father of four, living for some time, not far from David in Edina, MN, it hit a little closer to home.
Overall, a truly fun night. Great people. Good company. Good food. Good drink. Was very pleased to be there.
Looking forward to being on The Ed Show with Ed Schultz here in Washington DC this Friday night. Always a lot of fun fighting with the right winger and having them swing right back. We all laugh and hang out together after it is over. Much more collegial than one might imagine.
Hope you can watch.
Ken Silverstein of Harpers Magazine joins me today on Air America Washington's Live in Washington with Jack Rice to talk about the corporate on on labor and unions. He recently wrote an article entitled Labor's Last Stand in this month's Harper's Magazine.
Hope you can listen on DC's 1050 AM today.
