Recipe for America

I just returned from an evening in Seattle at FX McRory's, at a book signing for Jill Richardson's book Recipe for America. Not very many attendees, but Jill will be at several other venues in the Seattle area over the weekend and a review of the book will be featured on DailyKos on Sunday.
I've had my copy of the book for several weeks and it is definitely worth buying and reading if you care about eating and about the sustainability of the world economy (of which America is a major driving part).
McRory's was not a very good venue for a Book Signing, since it is a bar/restaurant and was very noisy. Eventually Jill led us outside onto the sidewalk eating area and talked about the book until the Seattle rain drove us back inside (of course it shouldn't have, as a Seattle Rain isn't really rain by the standards of the rest of the world--but it was a sign to change the venue slightly).
If you are interested in the topic of food, check out Jill's blog La Vida Locadore.

Honey Moon Tree


This was a great concert. Not much to do with Progressive Politics, unless perhaps you check out the web site of their lead singer.

Rachel Maddow Show moves to mornings

In an article entitled Maddow rechannels energy at Air America in the New York Daily News, the mystery of what happened to the Rachel Maddow show when the Ron Reagan Show expanded to three hours is revealed. As I suspected, Rachel has given up her afternoon show on Air America and the former second hour of the show that was being recycled from the evening MSNBC Rachel Maddow show has moved to the early morning: 5 am Eastern/2 am Pacific.  Since I am not usually up at 2 am pacific (except sometimes on weekends) I hadn’t been sure what was happening. Since I was rather bored with the recycled segment (having seen it on MSNBC the night before) I was happy to see the Ron Reagan Show expanded.

In other program changes, XM Radio has moved Thom Hartmann to the 6-9 PM Eastern/3-6 PM Pacific Segment, allowing him the full three hours, and expanded Mike Malloy from 2 to three hours in the 9-12 PM Eastern/6-9 Pacific.  (America Left, Channel 167) I’m not sure what time RR Show will be on but will find out.
