Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy passed away today. He was 83 years old. His final tweet, from 02/22/15, reads: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” Well put, and thank you for the memories.
Today on StandUP!
Friday was great, right out of the gate! Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) called in to talk with Pete about the Congressional battle to make sure the Dept. of Homeland Security stays funded. Pete also took the opportunity to get advice on raising succesful, strong daughters from the Senator, seeing as she is the first elected female Senator from the State of Michigan, it seems like a good source.
In the second hour, author of “The End of Men” and national correspondent for The Atlantic, Hanna Rosin joined us to discuss her article in this month’s issue about the scandal hunters that feast on the skeletons in the Clinton Family closet, “Among the Hillary Haters.”
Hour three got a little crowded so let’s just lay it out there:
- Comic Dean Obeidallah joined us to tease tomorrow’s “The Dean Obeidallah Show.” It’s very House of Cards-centric.
- John Hockenberry from WNYC’s “The Takeaway” shared the great work his show turned in this week on Net Neutrality
- and NYU bioethicist Dr. Arthur Caplan joined us again, this time to talk about the ethics of designer babies.
What a great show, and a great week. If you still listen to the show on Indie 102, that’s great. But why not ALSO check us out on Insight 121? I mean, it’s JUST the main channel we broadcast from…no big whoop.
