Hour 1:

Hour 2:

Hour 3: Ultimate Issues Hour: The Righteous Mind
Jonathan Haidt, professor of social psychology at the University of Virginia. His new book is The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

Here’s an excellent review in the WSJ: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304692804577281311514282028.html?KEYWORDS=the+righteous+mind

Another surprisingly fair review in NYT: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/25/books/review/the-righteous-mind-by-jonathan-haidt.html?pagewanted=all

Stories:

Obama Offers Barnard Grads Every Feminist Cliché in the Book
Did he miss one? Very empowering, don’t you think?
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/15/us/politics/in-graduation-speech-to-women-obama-leaps-into-gender-gap.html?hp

Jerry Brown: Please Vote to Tax the Rich More
Buried in this story, toward the end, is a little known fact: the budget next year is higher than this year. Brown is increasing spending; just not as much as he planned. Also: revenue assumptions for near term are laughable.
http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-state-budget-20120515,0,1532582.story

McGurn: Compare Brown and Christie
And contrast.

Oren: Why Isn’t Israel Celebrated?
Instead it’s demonized. Nothing better illustrates the morally confused world we live in than that.

Iranian Rapper Now Has a Price on His Head
Fatwa has been issued against him.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/may/14/iranian-rapper-death-threat-fatwa

Steyn: On Wilders and End of Free Speech in Europe
Islamists intimidation is almost complete. People literally fear death for stating obvious truths.  
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/299725/spirit-geert-wilders-mark-steyn#

Ever Hear UK Politician Finish a Speech with “God Bless Britain”?
There’s a reason.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/tony-blair/9265571/Tony-Blair-wanted-to-end-speech-with-God-bless-Britain.html

Turkish Journalist Sees Difference between Democracy and Liberty
Just as you point out in your book.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/14/opinion/can-islamists-be-liberals.html?hp

How Do You Stop Whiners?
Stop listening. Good topic for Thursday 9am.

Obama Demonizes Private Equity
And then asks them for money!  Amazingly some give it, proving that making money and clear thinking don’t necessarily go together.

Ann Romney Piece on Motherhood
To Newsweek’s Michelle Goldberg this conjures up images of Hitler and Stalin.
