Sunday Talking Heads: October 30, 2011
I have a little Halloween fun for you in the video, Be Ware.
Bev scheduled a macabre treat for Halloween Eve’s Book Salon, The Empire of Death: A Cultural History of Ossuaries and Charnel Houses, a beautifully illustrated book. Virtually Speaking tonight, at 9pm, has our own David Dayen, plus Avedon Carol. And FDL Movie Night Monday features Carl Colby and his film about his spy father, The Man Nobody Knew: In Search Of My Father CIA Spymaster William Colby. A must see, imho.
Here are the listings, a whole lot of horse racing going on, sure seems like so much so early but perhaps I was more interested in 2007-2008 than I am this time around. Plus a little bit on Libya and Iraq. Glenn Greenwald will be on Up with Chris Hayes, that will be good. So pour some more coffee or hot chocolate and tune in.
