SORT BY Relevancy
Glen writes both fiction and nonfiction from his forty-year career and experience as a trial lawyer and consultant in international business and banking.
His nonfiction work as the observer in The Prison Trilogy tells the tales in chronological order of how he came to be a lawyer for a Wall Street Journal heiress and her gay husband and how that representation landed him in federal prison. That is the first in The Trilogy. The second book tells the story of his cell mate, Colonel George Trofimoff, serving life for spying for the KGB, and the final book of The Trilogy describes the prisoners, Glen's experiences and takes a hard look at the American criminal justice system.
I would like to take this opportunity to discuss some of the more current issues facing our nation today. Some of what you hear may not be too palatable, but it will be good food for thought. I would like to hear your take on these issues, so call in at anytime during our broadcast. Look forward to hearing from you.
IBM toxic pool defies cleanup
TOM WILBER, Special to the Press & Sun-Bulletin 1:37 p.m. EDT April 5, 2015
A remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site where at least 1,500 people still work may take years to find.

The contaminated hot spot lies under an area the size of eight village blocks.
Situated over and near the source area, and blocking access to cleanup, are dozens of buildings.
To date, nearly 70,000 gallons of solvent %u2014 more than 40 tons %u2014 have been pumped from the ground.
ENDICOTT – After 35 years, IBM Corp. contractors have stanched the flow of industrial solvents into a commercial and residential district in the heart of the village, but they have yet to find a solution for the source of the problem at the company's former flagship manufacturing plant.
Officials recently reported that efforts to intercept and remove the subterranean flow of hazardous chemicals coming from the industrial complex — now owned by Huron Real Estate Associates — have been successful. Consequently, health risks to a nearby neighborhood have been eliminated.
Yet they have no remedy for a concentrated pool of solvents directly under the manufacturing site, where at least 1,500 people still work. Full story: http://www.pressconnects.com/story/news/local/2015/04/05/ibm-tce-issues/25302109/
Last weeks' twin decisions by the U.S. Supreme Ct, 1 upholding Obamacare by a 6-3 majority & the other upholding Gay Marriage by a 5-4 majority have 2 be seen as a major body blow to the Republican Party. While freeing them of the obligation 2 campaign on those issues, overall they come out as the real losers & the upswing is definitely in favor of the Democratic Party in next year's presidential election.
The GOP can't pander to their base with these two vote-getting issues but instead will have to fall back on their free market/small gov't message. Even the anti-immigration stance taken by the GOP establishment, while popular w/older white GOP voters, no longer appears to be championed by the Supreme Ct in light of the rulings on Obamacare and Gay Marriage.
The GOP is basically reduced to "God" & "Guns" for presidential campaign rhetoric. Those 2 issues will generate steam among the party faithful no doubt but w/o Obamacare + Gay Marriage the engine driving the GOP vote turn-out for 2016 will be hampered markedly & any chance of the GOP winning back the White House have now been sizably diminished.
God / guns / ISIS constitute the GOP message in 2016. As far as the one other galvanizing issue 4 the GOP, abortion, the Supreme Ct. today upheld a stay of the new Texas abortion law that would shut down all but a handful of abortion clinics in TX in a 5-4 decision. While the Supreme Ct. has put in place more restrictions on abortion over the last few years, an outright repudiation of Roe v. Wade is becoming less likely.
So, the most likely GOP campaign wedge issue in 2016 will involve foreign policy - but w/more than 13 announced GOP presidential candidates running in 2016 this issue runs the risk of being watered down or overly convoluted.
In a word, the GOP is a fractured party w/a fractured message. They r in disarray + will lose big in 2016!

The Real Script Show
Redeeming Elevated Anointed Living Talk with Pastor 1st Lady Donna Hall.
In light of the current issues facing the Church in today's society, it is important for Believers of Christ to know how to respond to the culture in which we have been chosen to live in. Is the Bible still relevant? Does it speak to today's issues? Is it possible to know how God feels about today's happenings? What should the "church" be doing in this hour?

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
