In my last broadcast I tried to tie together and retell some stories in the news that were creating terrible anxiety in me. Analyzing my own attempt at self-therapy I realize that I did too much free association and not enough rational integration. I think that it would be very hard for anyone to follow and take much from my babbling. Yet, it was an exercize that was very helpful to me. Therefore, I will try again and rework my broadcast with greater integration and suggest some ways out of the horrors we read about each day such as a Christian sect in Iraq starving to death while trying to escape a group of armed religious fanatics who, if not stopped, will kill, rape and enslave every member of this group. I will use the metaphor  of the google map in my newly created story as well as suggest that the empowerment of women and the growth of the arts in every educational system are keys to exiting our current human end game.
