We’ve got a new "Think Again" column called "Tea Party/Fox Party" about some of the implications of Massachusetts
Oh look, it’s me. Everybody watch…
Faced with the increasing global demand for oil and the threat ofclimate change, America needs a new energy policy–but what are our options? Bill Moyers sits down with Public Agenda analysts Jean Johnson and Scott Bittle to discuss how we can power America’s future and why we should "work the problem" rather than listening to extremes on either side. Johnson and Bittle are the co-authors of Who Turned Out the Lights?Your Guided Tour to the Energy Crisis. Then, the Journal assesses Obama’s first year as President in the wake of Democrats’ defeat in Massachusetts’ special election for Senate with Princeton politics and African American studies professor Melissa Harris-Lacewell and journalist Eric Alterman.
Alter-reviews by Eve Rose Alterman:
Make It or Break It, Volume one, extended edition
Make It or Break It is a show about four main teenage gymnasts competing and training to be in the Olympics. Each girl has a weakness, not always a physical weakness, but one that creates drama in each episode. I easily became addicted to this show because I felt I related to them in one small way or another. Each episode ends with a cliffhanger having you begging for more. I watched this entire season in two days. I guess that means something.
I give this show five stars and it is a definite buy for a teen from theages 10 through sixteen. (You can see the included extras
10 Things I Hate About You is a show about two sisters that have completely different values. (Sorry folks, the kid stopped there. She had too much homework and I made her go to my lecture last night.) Anyway, I watched the first episode of the show with her and we both liked it, at least I did, almost as much as that show about Why You Can’t Date My Daughter, or whatever it was called. It’s well written and well acted and the girls are cute in all the right (and wrong) ways. While we were in Punta Cana, she stayed up till 2:30 watching what she said was nine episodes of the show in a row. But I couldn’t get the review out of her. It’s got a bunch of extras that you can look up
