It was a busy show...

We covered a lot of territory today.

First up was David Swanson of and (and others too numerous to mention at the moment) who called in while going from the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing "What Went Wrong: Torture and the Office of Legal Counsel in the Bush Administration" to the big rally for Single Payer Healthcare.

While in the Senate hearing, he was liveblogging at dailykos along with Jessalyn Radack, who joined us for the last half-hour of the show.

We centered in on the story of the "Liberty City Six" conviction -- on the third try -- with my former WINZ colleague and current CBS4 commentator and investigative reporter Jim DeFede.

Of course, I couldn't talk with DeFede without talking about Gov. Charlie Crist, who yesterday announced a run for the Senate.

Charlie Crist is featured prominently in the new documentary "Outrage."  I spoke with director Kirby Dick about the film, which deals with the rampant hypocrisy demonstrated by closeted homosexual politians.

My dear friend John Ondrasik, better know as Five for Fighting, joined me to talk music, as well as the Performance Rights Act which today passed the House Judiciary Committee on its way to a full House vote.

More later... gotta take a dog to the vet!
