“Can A Full Court (in support of) Press Save Rational Discourse?” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

The Supreme Court reached an important unanimous ruling, reaffirming that there is no “hate speech” exception to the First Amendment. Might this ruling help save rational discourse in our country? This and more on today’s show. See Program Notes, below, for all the stories, etc., I plan to discuss.

“Don’t Let It Go Unheard: New Year’s Day 2016,” Live at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)

Happy New Year, everyone! As you know if you’re a regular show listener, the live show typically airs Fridays at 3 p.m. ET, so today we have the opportunity to make it a New Year’s theme show. A little lighter on the politics, heavier on the applied philosophy — centered on the theme of this show, the uniquely American sense of life.
