We look at crime at several levels: retail (the Newtown murders), wholesale (the entertainment industry), bigger wholesale (the financial system), and factory-direct (the Federal Government). Includes KD's reflections on Newtown & why the proposed new gun-control laws have zero relevance; a new David Rovics song on the Entertainment Biz; a short movie on the government-assisted crimes of Wall Street; and a good essay by Paul Craig Roberts on Hugo Chavez vs. the Washington DC gang.
"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Boardwalk") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
The BLEEPED version, removes the verb "screwed" from David Rovics' song ("It's the rich who line their pockets while the rest of us get screwed"). I think the standard (unbleeped) version should be suitable for airplay, but program directors can choose the version they prefer.
