SORT BY Relevancy
Sports talk and discussion with an attitude for the passionate and hard core fan. Today we will have Jon Fox, our Washington Redskins correspondent, in to talk about the Redskins as they head into the opening weekend of the NFL regular season. How ill RG III adapt to the new system of head coach Jay Gruden and will the Washington offense get back to its 2012 productivity levels with the addition of WR Desean Jackson? How is the defense looking and will this be a dominant year for the super talented Brian Orakpo? We'll discuss these things and more as we look at the Redskins and the entire NFC East during the segment.
We will analyze the NFL eastern divisions of the AFC and NFC along with discussing Phil Simms and his apparent commitment to not referring to Washington by their allegedly racist team name during his broadcasts on CBS & the NFL Network. Is he a hero for social justice or a fomer Giants' QB picking on an old rival? We'll also react to Cleveland Browns head coach, Mike Pettine, selecting Brian Hoyer over Johnny Manziel to start week 1, Major League Baseball storylines and much, much more.

This week, Laura Murphy, Director of the Washington Legislative Office for the American Civil Liberties Union.
Ms. Murphy grew up in a politically active family that advocated citizen action. After campaigning, working on Capitol Hill, lending her talents to several elected officials, working for several different ACLU offices, she was offered the position of Director of the Washington Legislative office in 1993 and was the first woman, African America, and has been the longest serving Director of the DC Legislative Office.
Almost 46,000 individuals are behind bars for non-violent drug offenses and can now apply for clemency. While there is a strong libertarian movement questioning the war on drugs, many state legislatures grapple with the budgetary implications of an expanding prison population. Furthermore, many religious movements are advocating redemption. There are also those who express concern that that the application of justice with respect to the war on drugs comes down with disparate representation regarding minority groups.
Ms. Murhpy’s observed major changes in the Republican Party since 2008. Whereas the the party once ostracized members who challenged party orthodoxy, it now seemingly welcomes more dissent under the big tent. The Democrats, Ms. Murphy observers, have some serious hawkish elements.
Lately, the ACLU has been at the forefront of the battle against the unprecedented surveillance by government agencies like the NSA, the use of torture by the CIA, and overreach by law enforcement agencies.
The following is a statement on the incident from Washington Post Executive Editor Martin D. Baron:Wesley has briefed us on what occurred, and there was absolutely no justification for his
arrest.He was illegally instructed to stop taking video of officers. Then he followed officers’ instructions to leave a McDonald’s — and after contradictory instructions on how to exit, he was slammed against a soda machine and then handcuffed. That behavior was wholly unwarranted and an assault on the freedom of the press to cover the news. The physical risk to Wesley himself is obvious and outrageous.
