Your coverage of UC Davis stellar. As a long time fan, I just kicked in some $$.
Oh, and maybe you are too young to remember, but Nov 22 is a date etched in my memory. Assassination of JFK.

First fatality is an unborn fetus of a pregnant victim of police brutality? Where is the outrage from the right-wing "right to lifers?"

Brad, i'm a huge fan of Mike Malloy. I supported Air America when it was brand new. I listen daily. BUT I have to tell you when I hear you say "...like a scared little girl..." (you can fill in the verb) as I have now heard on TWO occasions, it makes my blood boil. I know a lot of little girls who are far braver than their SCARED LITTLE BROTHERS. Why do you have to make such a patently sexist remark comparing adult behavior to little girls? At worst you should say "like a scared little kid" or scared little animal. But scared little girl? Please. Time to do a little consciousness raising and stop perpetuating the typical stereotypes. It's bad enough that the regular media are bombarding the airwaves with bimbos and imbeciles galore (Kim Kardashian, etal). Do we on the left have to tolerate such asinine remarks as the one you made tonight and that I heard as I drove thru traffic and had to stay focused and not scream when I heard you say that.
Thanks for listening.

Usually enjoy and support your work, but you *did* say "scared as a little girl" tonight and it was damned non-progressive of you.
And so much a deep assumption, you don't even know you said it!

Ernest @2, Agreed. Sadly, they only watch Fox and likely will never hear of this murder unless it goes to trial, and then, only if it becomes a national scandal. Which it is.

About Jennifer Fox and that "miscarriage"....
Some skepticism is in order here, to wit:
Occupy protester's miscarriage claim questioned
A Seattle teenager's claim that abuse by Seattle police caused her to miscarry has become a viral Internet sensation of the Occupy Wall Street movement, but no evidence has emerged to support her allegation.
Fox has declined to provide medical records supporting her claim that she had a miscarriage five days after being hit, and her family has cast doubt on the claim.
Flaws noted in Occupy Seattle protester's miscarriage story: Police report shows she gave different dates for pregnancy claim
The night Fox was pepper sprayed and claimed she was kicked, Fox and other Occupy Seattle protesters told seattlepi.com she was two months pregnant.
At the Friday Occupy Seattle rally outside the Seattle Municipal Tower – Nov. 18 – Fox told seattlepi.com, "I'm three months pregnant today.
Fox also claimed in September that she was three months pregnant, according to a police report obtained by seattlepi.com.
Questioning the Accuracy of Jennifer Fox's Miscarriage Claim (Updated)
While sources in general should be given the benefit of the doubt—even if they are homeless women—and there is no evidence that Fox isn't being entirety forthright, her story looks increasingly dubious.
Fox's story needs to be corroborated by evidence to withstand scrutiny. Serious claims and allegations demand serious evidence to verify them.
That said, Ms. Fox and her fellow Occupy Seattle demonstrators did not deserve to be pepper sprayed and generally abused by Robocop-costumed riot police.

On the Oba,a gets mic-checked thingy. So there was this zoom-in photo of the note that the OWS guy handed to him. Lots of right-wing commentary on MSM sites that it was 'staged'... I would say it's a good thing, even if it was staged. Obama must know that he can't pacify and placate at this point.
