Radio daze ...

I have some radio gigs this weekend, and I will certainly not be discussing America's Second Civil War (yes, history will record that the dueling Democratic strategists of North and South exchanged blistering fusillades of inside-baseball books in a withering battle of intellectual attrition).

I'll just stick to the minor stuff, like the occupation of Iraq.

On Saturday I'll be discussing that, Rummy and whatever else Chuck Mertz wants to chat about on This is Hell. If you're in Chicago, catch it on 89.3 fm at 12:10 central time (1:10 EST). Others can stream it here.

On Sunday, I'll also be talking about Iraq, this time with the legendary Blase Bonpane -- I used to listen to him religiously when I lived in L.A. -- on World Focus. In SoCal, catch it at 10 am Pacific time on KPFK: 90.7 fm in Los Angeles and 98.7 fm in Santa Barbara. Or stream it here.

Also on Sunday (for North Americans), I'll do my regular weekly gig on Breakfast with Peter Godfrey down in Adelaide Australia (don't ask me how that came about). If you're in Adelaide -- and I'm sure many readers are -- you can catch it Monday morning at 7:15 am on 101.5 fm. If you're in the states you can stream it here at 3:45 pm EST on Sunday. I'll speak, as always, with our own regular commenter, the insightful and enchanting Heroesall. Take that, Rupert Murdoch!
