Thanks very much for the Zevon show. My late wife and I saw him several times (oddly enough in Louisville). This is the music my wife liked to play in her minivan while driving my kids around when they were little. That might possibly explain a bit about why their world view isn't like their peers'.

Confirmed this is also true in the archive - both the 1st and second hours are the same hour on the recording here. Bummer because the second is the one I missed.

The part that terrifies me most about the James Taylor episode is that John Kerry was almost President. When was the last time Democrats nominated a gualified candidate? Bill Clinton? Joe Leiberman? We look at the recent list, Al Gore, John Kerry, John Edwards, Joe Biden, Barry Obama. And Hillary's primary qualification seems to be that her milage rivales that of an astronaut. Shouldn't a Party that nominates this class of catididate be thoroughly rejected my the American People? And yes the American people did elect Barry Obama.

I figured the officer who stopped Hugh was a USC fan and that's why he got a ticket.

Can we run Amb. Dermer for president? He said more and made more sense about terrorists and Islamist murderers in 10 minutes on your show than the entire Obama adminstration has made in 6 years. Two days after September 11, 2001, two Arabists from (probably) the CIA came on the wall-to-wall news coverage ... and made the point that, while negotiation and compromise seem like laudable conduct and objectives in our culture, Arabs see them as signs of weakness that beg to be crushed. Hmm ... iran... Hmmm ... Hamas and $7 billion in reconstruction of tunnels under Gaza ... Hmmmmm .....

RE: Donahue Vs Hugh Summary: Hugh was right in what he thought,but totally wrong in what he said. A distillation of the debate: "You are blaming the victim!" "No, that is not my intention in the article." "Surely you are! Who else agrees with you?" "People, lots of important people" "Who?!?!!" "I'm not saying." "Well that invalidates the statement of your intentions of the article, and I categorically state that you are with the enemy!!" "Who are you to tell me what my intentions are?" "Who are you to question my perception of the intentions of your article as universal?" "The heck with you!' "No, the heck with you!!!" This was a disgrace. Donahue is on our side. He was in my fair city years ago, on stage at a very Calvinistic Baptist Church, exhorting us to support the then Republican Senate to rid itself of the Judicial Filibuster to get solid conservatives on the Federal Bench (Bill Frist joined us in simulcast, along with Chuck Colson). This happened to be the church that Hugh's good buddy Al Mohler attended at the time (maybe still does, I just don't know now). What would a devout Roman Catholic be doing on stage with the likes of me in the audience, except to understand that he could make common cause with all people of good conscience to protect life, and the life of our Republic. I remember the statement he made that made me sit a little straighter in my chair: "You guys are ones that I want to fight along side!" He ain't a leftist, folks. Even so, he was wrong to write the article, and while Hugh absolutely botched the approach, Hugh's gut was correct. Mr Donahue should not have written the article for three reasons: 1. He was guilty of doing the same things that the "media outlet" did (offending all Muslims, not just the Wahhabists ) in making true but insensitive statements about the murders. So close in time to the deaths of these people, it was wrong to publically muse about how they really did invite the worst of evil to come and do their damage. 2. Mr Donahue nearly changed the course of the conversation from one of how civilized society will eradicate itself of this evil by arming up and destroying everything aligned with Wahhabism, to the stupid leftist trick of trying to "understand" our adversaries and getting nervous about the "response of the right." 3. Mr Donahue was playing an important riff from the Apostle Paul, in that "everything is permissible, not everything is profitable." The problem is that was in a letter to the Corinthian Church, not to the pagan world outside of it. I am all in for decency, and it makes me sick to see Mary, the mother of Jesus, be slimed by stupid artists, even though I do not venerate her above any other character of good will described in Scripture. I am just as sick over indecent cartoons about Mohammed or Bhudda or the Dalai Lama, as I am careful to follow the Apostle Peter's advice to "Always have an answer for the hope that I have, but do it with gentleness and respect." Indecency is a problem with our society, and it makes the problem of defeating Wahhabism harder, but it is not the cause of the problem. His musings are for those of us inside the Body of Believers, not for the practical atheists outside of it. I would have preferred Hugh to asking Mr Donahue how others outside the faith might perceive his writing, and then persuaded him that though his intentions were not to "blame the victim," it was a total distraction from the words that needed to be stated now. Hugh did not trust Mr Donahue's good intentions, attacked his character, and then questioned his allegiance to the Faith. Sorry, but who are any of us to question the faith of others? One must look at the fruit of a lifetime of service to have even a clue of what goes on in the soul of another, and claiming that he was "in league with the enemy" was a step WAY out of bounds. Hugh, I love you, man. I would not know as much as I do without your show, and the books I have read due to your recommendations have all been great, and fully appreciated. I do notice, however, that your invective is twice that for the guys on our side when you perceive a slight against your sensibilities, than it is for people who are dedicated to the destruction of our Republic. Mr Donahue was making a statement on public decency and self-restraint, not an argument for government coercion to become politically correct, or blaming a media outlet for getting murdered. To label him as apostate was wrong, and you have no standing to do so. The enemy must defeated, and we waste precious time talking about how someone is or is not a "real Catholic." We are a people of the Body or not, and we must hang together to defeat the real threat of militant Islam and even more militant Secularism. Civilization hangs in the balance, and we must be civilized with one another in order to protect more innocents from slaughter.

Am I the only one who was incredulous at Mr. Burns' remarks? How many more (including children) have to be gunned down before someone figures out an armed and trained populace might be a good thing in the war on terror? All that blather about "liberal, resilient democracies" made me cringe. I like and respect Mr. Burns' work, but he should be anything but the "go-to" guy on the European response to these attacks.

Hugh, you take the cake for arrogant. If a woman wants to take a shortcut through a terrible, gang riddled neighborhood in the dead of night because she can, and she gets raped, was it her right to do it. Of course! Was it smart? Does she need to assume any responsibility for her actions. Pretty obvious the difference here. As long as you see the cartoonist work as honorable you won't be able to see this. We all make decisions regarding our safety. I would gladly give my life as Saint Thomas More did. For something good and for God. But for nasty and revolting cartoons. They made the choice and it was theirs to make. This does not make them saints. Tease a bear and see what happens.

"Donahue did not espouse a position in which he blamed the Paris magazine publishers for their own deaths." Yes, he did. Mr. Donahue wrote: " Had he not been so narcissistic, he may still be alive." In other words, if Mr. Charbonnier had not printed what he did he would not have been killed. Or, more simply, he brought it on himself.

What a childish, unprofessonal "interview!" Hugh completely distorted Mr. Donahue's argument and misused his privilege as a radio talk show host to berate Donahue publicly. Donahue's point is that all media should accept the very same limitation that is being followed by every major media outlet in the United States - including the radio stations which broadcast Hugh's program. Donahue argues - and the major media agrees - that publishers should not disseminate blatantly insulting and offensive "speech" with regard to religious beliefs. There is nothing even remotely wrong or embarrassing about that argument. It is precisely the policy that is currently followed by all the leading media outlets in this country. Contrary to Hugh's focus on carefully selected excerpts from Donahue's article, Donahue did not espouse a position in which he blamed the Paris magazine publishers for their own deaths. He unequivocally stated that the murderers are responsible for their barbaric acts. However, that does not mean that it is prudent policy to print or broadcast insulting depictions or statements about any religion or religious beliefs. All responsible "speakers" self-censor so as to avoid unnecessarily offending their audience. That's all Donahue is urging the publishers of magazines like the one in Paris to do. Donahue 's argument is not an "embarrassment to Catholics," nor is Hugh qualified to even make such an assertion. One last point: Hugh's repeated resort to "this is not a debate, it is an interview," each time the interviewee asks a question that Hugh does not want to answer is patently evasive. When an interviewer asks confrontational questions designed to force the interviewee to defend himself, the interviewer should be willing to engage in the debate.

Shorter Bill Donahue: "I wrote a dissertation and a number of books, have taught a class in Constitutional Law, and high officials in the Catholic Church (whom I can't name) called to agree with me, therefore I'm brilliant and you're not." Mr. Donahue wants to have it both ways, claiming that the killers bear "full responsibility" and simultaneously claiming that the victims bear some responsibility for their own deaths. What a buffoon.

You mischaracterized Donohue completely. Madison was right when he said, “Liberty may be endangered by the abuses of liberty as well as the abuses of power.” My sympathies are more with the Muslim police officer who was gunned down while trying to protect the peaceful people of the neighborhood. "Je ne suis pas Charlie, jesuis Ahmed." Look it up!

I don't think that this is the first "targeted" attack by Islamists. What about Theo Van Goght in Holland for his film?

With regards to the cops turning their backs on the mayor, I think many are missing the point. Sure, it is a slap in the face of the mayor. However, they are not the military for one thing. For another, they did not refuse to obey the mayor's directives. They did not turn their backs on an "official" duty of the mayor. The speech at the funeral is just a thing the mayor can do or choose not to do. It is not an "offical" event. In other words, the mayor crashed the party/funeral. I see no problems with the act of turning their backs on the mayor's speech at this event.

I'm going to guess the idea of Time's Square being disrupted on New Year's Eve helps explain why SRN is asking for Hugh's show to be live that night and New Years. If something's going down live, they'd like live coverage.

Since Hugh owns Apple stock, that means he owns a share of the door Mrs. Hewitt walked into. Doesn't that make him liable for her injury?

Suppressing movies is something Obama did with the one that supposedly sparked the Benghazi terrorist attack in 2012. He made certain that film-maker got a maximum sentence for a minor offense, and also made sure his frog-march arrest was on the network news. So why should Obama criticize the North Koreans, when their methods are so similar?
