Today I look back to the incident which opened up the Iran/Contra scandal, and the man who inadvertently started it all. I also share a few thoughts on saturation news coverage.
Today's music is "Melodisturbed Remix," by J. Marie Anderson. I found it at PodSafe Audio.
Theme music is composed and performed by Marc Rose.
Oh man, Iran/Contra. I don\'t know whether it still is, but when I was there, San Jose was a pretty liberal town. Opinions about the scandals ranged from outrage all the way to umbrage. I remember how it triggered all sorts of discussions, sometimes arguments. I still think the whole thing should\'ve ended in impeachment. My father, not a fan of Reagan\'s by any means, thought that was a bit extreme. But then he didn\'t hear all the calls for a firing squad I heard at school.
