He covers issues of race in our culture, and he will be one of our guests to weigh in on Black History Month (BHM). Mary Baker, an active homeschooling mom, also opposes a Black History Month celebration. Why are these black conservatives against BHM, and how will I challenge them on this issue?

DRAGNET: This exciting episode is titled "Homicide". Sit back, relax, transport yourself back in time to the Golden Age of Radio
Dragnet is an American radio series, enacting the cases of a dedicated Los Angeles police etective, Sergeant Joe Friday and his partners. The show takes its name from the police term "dragnet", meaning a system of coordinated measures for apprehending criminals or suspects.
Dragnet is perhaps the most famous and influential police procedural drama in media history. The series gave audience members a feel for the boredom and drudgery, as well as the danger and heroism, of police work. Dragnet earned praise for improving the public opinion of police officers.
Actor and producer Jack Webb's aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting.
Of all the crime dramas that ever appeared on radio, none can beat the intencity and suspence of DRAGNET. It's no-nonsense approach to presenting the dry, but realistic daily routines of police work, plus the stark drama of fighting criminals, made this series an all-time classic, both on radio, and later on, television. DRAGNET continues to be an all-time classic, and, is the drama that set the standard of all police dramas that followed it, have tried to emulate. None have been able to do so since.
Philosopher and theologian Dr. Steve Katz presents the "Cosmic Christ." This extraterrestrial spiritual teacher came from the highest metaphysical planes bordering the Godhead of Life Energy. It marked a decisive turn in human consciousness and world history. His return has been forecast since his death by Him, and witnesses of his teachings / practice that included viewing Christ's healing and weather control. . Both religion and science are needed to understand his mission as best we can. Clearly, Dr. Wilhelm Reich in his books "The Murder of Christ," and "Contact With Space," thought Christ had special contact with the cosmic energy. The reality of his Father being the Godhead of Cosmic Energy was clearly recognized as a possibility in Reich's "Contact With Space." This is the new paradigm of a creative fusion of theology and science leading to a universal religion (see the work of theologian Hans Kung).. Remember the old science fiction film "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951 version). After the human savages killed Klatuu, Gort, his guardian robot, brought him back to the space craft and put him into a cosmic energy tube. Turning on the cosmic energy, it revived him to life. When asked by his human friend how long he would stay resurrected, Klatuu replied: "Only the Great Spirit knows that." As Dr. Wilhelm Reich stated in the report to his "Oranur Experiment": "the boundary between physics and metaphysics dissolved."
Virginia City was a boomtown with the 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States, and numerous mines were opened. At the city's peak of population in the mid-1870s, it had an estimated 25,000 residents. The mines' output declined after 1878, and the city declined.
However, many in the now historic town say, some of the residents have never left. And as this ghost town has become more of a tourist attraction, one of the attractions the town now offers is ghost tours. Paranormal investigators from all over the world come to the Nevada playground to find who's still hanging out in the saloon or sleeping in the old hotel.
Debbie Bender is part of the team that runs the Virginia City Ghost Tours. The stories and experiences she has from this old mining community are eerie, intriguing and mystifying all at once. You can find them at www.virginiacityghosttours.com. Debi will explain the history of the town from then, until now. We'll talk about who's still wandering around. And how ghost hunting has brought new 'life' to an aged community.
