Interesting and important as usual. thanks!
I agree with the comments about the quality of your show. Typically I find the content and delivery to good.
I however disagree with the notion the Obama is narcissistic. Obama seems to listen to others and is able to form policy with in the context of a give and take of ideas. My statement is not meant to imply that I agree or disagree with the policies that have been endorsed by Obama.
I do however have to express that most people who find themselves on the public stage have a heightened sense of importance. I would admit that is true for me and I also assume that it is also true for Mr. Henwood. Simply put, it takes a bit of arrogance to believe that one has the right to demand public attention.
Doug thank you for your continuously interesting presentation of both fascinating and relevant content.
You always, while fund raising remain respectful of the listener and possible funders. You set a admirable standard for how you treat your listeners. Other presenters need to take a seminar from you or go to work for Clear Channel or Fox News, neither of which demonstrate respect for the intellectual and emotional character of their listeners. Similar to the KPFA presenters trying to bully and harangue listeners into submission and then subscribing,
Fund raising wasn't verbal witch burning in the past, things have got to change at KPFA
Fantastic show, Doug's comments about the narcissistic Obama were spot on and chilling.
