Sunday Talking Heads: October 28, 2012

Well here we are in SE PA, staring Sandy straight in the eye. I am dreading the deluge to come, I’ve never forgotten Agnes, I hope Sandy gets legs and moves on outta here, quick like. But she’s going straight up the Susquehanna where they haven’t forgotten Agnes either. Hoping for the best for everyone.

There will be updates on the storm today on the shows, yet as Peterr notes:

Missing from the whole slate of topics and guests, as Sandy takes careful aim at the northeast coast, is anything and anyone related  to weather, climate, science. We went through four debates without a question on these topics, but you’d think that a major weather event like this on the doorstep of many/most/all of these studios would prompt *someone* at a “Who should we get this week?” meeting to suggest that perhaps getting at least one guest to talk about weather, climate, and science might be appropriate.

But Bob Schieffer’s going to harp on Benghazi some more, prioritehs! Gotta keep feeding the trumped up controversies the right uses to keep their sheep corralled over there.

Kevin Gosztola’s hosting Book Salon today, This Machine Kills Secrets. Tonight KagroX and Cliff Schecter will be Virtually Speaking. Tomorrow night Lisa is hosting a ghosting movie, The Selling, you can watch it through here.
