The Semblers or Cronyism for criminals
This is choice. Not only are those child-torturers, the Semblers of Straight, Inc. fame, living the good life as ambassdors to Italy, our tax dollars will be going to build a magnificent building in Rome to be named in their honor. Disgusting doesn't begin to cover it.
Mark Levine of Radio Inside Scoop is running four hours of programming on the details on this diabolical duo that invented prohibition profiteering. The shows, which feature interviews with experts and hours of testimony from former victims of the program, are available as an audio feed or for mp3 download and there's more commentary on the blog at the site.
I'd say enjoy, but it makes you want to vomit. Listen if you have the intestinal fortitude.
Update: the Straights.com, a valuable resource on the Semblers themselves, reminds us to repost this excellent article from Alternet as well, Ambassador de Sade in case you missed it in the Saturday roundup.
