Squirrel Report – 109

Special Guest Host, JayG (filling in for Breda this time)

The main topic was Dark Tide: The Great Molasses Flood of 1919 and we finally got into it about halfway in.

Great coverage of a bizarre incident from almost 100 years ago, well worth the read.

And a bunch of other things too numerous to list here. You’ll just have to listen.

Tonight on The Squirrel Report!

Since Weerd is in between illness provided by his personal disease vector, we’re finally going to talk about Dark Tide: The Great Molasses Flood of 1919. For those of you who didn’t read the book, in 1919 a large molasses storage tank ruptured, flooding the North End of Boston with molasses. 13 years after The Jungle was published and the plight of immigrants, especially their living conditions, was still fairly wretched (Especially when compared to today’s standards.) Pre-OSHA and apparently engineering was still a “rule of thumb” practice in many areas.

This and More! Tonight: 8:00 FOT, 9:00 Eastern

Squirrel Report – 108

Special guest host: JayG

Obama’s masterful foreign policy decisions in Iraq, The VA, Wheelbarrows of cash, Full Moon Friday the 13th, A few callers, and it was a show. We’ll be back next week, hopefully talking about Dark Tide: The Great Molasses Flood of 1919 because it really is a fascinating story that shows us “The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there“.

Call In!

It’s a call in show, you know how those work, right?

Tonight’s call in question:

If you could travel back in time and cure or kill any person, who would it be and why? (Idea stolen from here) We don’t like the US only limit so we’re making it cover the entire world. You have one chance, no repeats, no backsies and you have to live with the consequences. (For the purposes of this exercise we’ll assume the time stream is linear and ignore the many-worlds interpretation.)

It’s book club night! We’re going to talk about the book, Dark Tide: The Great Molasses Flood of 1919. It turned out to be an interesting book on several levels. The past really is a different world.

Then there’s the Bergdahi scandal. Can Obama squeak out of this one?

All this and MORE, TONIGHT!

8:00 FOT, 9:00 Eastern.

(Plus, it’s someone’s birthday tonight! Shhhh.. Don’t tell her about the surprise party.)

You mean these women?

Or the feminist, 1st world, dependent on the government, women who instead of learning to defend them selves, demand that people not attack them?

Then there was that crazy guy who ran over some people, knifed some others and then shot some more but it’s all about the guns. (Or is it all about the atom bombs?)

Maybe he was just a crazy killer!
