128. The Day After
Like America at large, Mona and Jay have a lot to chew over. There’s last night’s presidential debate, of course (or debates). Mona and Jay pay particular attention to the Trumpster — to whom they have different reactions (though probably the same fundamental one).
They then discuss the Iran deal, and opposition to, and the American president’s continued disgusting accusations against his critics. Are you with the “Death to America” crowd? If you oppose the deal, Obama says you are.
Also up for discussion is the SAT, and the decision of some universities to jettison it. Hmmm, why are they doing that? And is their decision doing students any good?
Mona and Jay talk about the Castros’ embassy in D.C., an international prize to Kim Jong-un, and the prospect of John Kerry as Nobelist. They end by appreciating the late Robert Conquest, poet, historian, truth-teller, and delight.
(Closing music: Morton Gould’s “American Salute,” which takes advantage of “When Johnny Comes Marching Home.”)
