Liberalism, Doubt, and Alcohol

No, my name isn't actually Gwen. This is indeed Mecha, and Cham forgot his writey-things-down thing, so a few notes so we don't forget.

Also, we have been given a great gift of Irish Whiskey after our weekend travels, and as our regular listeners know, that means we must drink it on air. So you can certainly expect that on Friday as well!

It reminds me of a review in The New Yorker of the spate of books that came out just after 9/11. The reviewer dissed all of them, at the same time trying to honor the simple decency of people in Manhattan and elsewhere as they responded. And he said at the end:

"Americans believe, and are willing to die for the belief, that no one should be forced to die for a belief. And Americans believe with transcendant faith that it is possible to live a good and fulfilling life without a transcendant cause."

I think I believe that...
