It's another Tuesday in exile-- covid exile, that is. Laffy is in Southern California, and I'm in Florida, two of the big coronavirus hotspots right now. We're both on the older side, so we're staying safely at home, wondering about the covidiots venturing out mingling germs. I'd normally say it's a good thing there's so much going on to talk about, but I'd prefer sheer boredom over the kind of excitement Trump is bringing to our world. We'll do our best to fill you in on all the news you need to know about today, as Laffy brings us her Tweet Spot.

We're now two months into the Monday Music shows and I'm heartened by the response. I'm glad you listeners seem to be enjoying them almost as much as I am! And today we're in for another big treat.

It's been one hell of a week. Nothing shocking there, as it's been a crazy, fucked-up year so far, so why should this week be any different? Florida, where I live, is one of the ugliest COVID-19 hotspots on the planet right now. It's time to change our elected officials to take the DUH out of FloriDUH. Today, I'll speak with Jen Perelman, who's primarying one of our worst, Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Then we'll speak with and salute the man dubbed the "FOIA Terrorist" by our government, Jason Leopold. He's a senior investigative reporter for BuzzFeed News, and just won a huge victory against the government for holding up documents related to the Roger Stone case and others too.

The Supreme Court finally handed down its final three decisions of the 2019 term, ruling on the fate of Donald Trump's tax returns and financial documents... kind of. I'll update you on all of it at the top of the show. There's a lot of news to get to today.
And because it's Thursday, Howie Klein is here. And joining us today is Angie Nixon, a candidate for Florida's state legislature who happens to be pregnant and is positive for COVID-19. Howie wrote about Angie at DownWithTyranny- you should read that and check out Angie's website at angienixon.com. She's quite impressive! I'm excited to watch her take over the Florida legislature ... and the world!

"The Beginning or the End" was the name of a film that, pardon the expression, bombed. It was a big-budget dramatization of of the Manhattan Project and the invention and use of the new Atomic Bomb. Author George Mitchell's new book of the same name tells the story of this gigantic flop and the government's role in framing the message of what was supposed to be one of the most significant films of the era. The story not only involved MGM, but Donna Reed, President Truman and Ayn Rand. The book was just released yesterday and, although it chronicles an event that happened 75 years ago, it warns us about secrecy, manipulation and suppression as threats to the planet continue today. Of course, we begin, as usual, with the latest news .. including the drip drip of decisions from the Supreme Court, and some funny too.
