    Hop-scotching the world in search of a Nobel Peace prize-winning diplomatic triumph, President Donald Trump has tried muscle and sanctions in Iran and sweet talk and promises with North Korea.  No luck.  So about peace between Serbia and Kosovo.  Former UN diplomat and scholar Ed Joseph says the grand plan for a White House summit blew up when the Kosovar President was indicted as a war criminal.  Most Kosovars were glad to see the summit disappear, though many dispute President Hashim Thaci’s indictment.

    A North Dakota construction magnate, backed by a far-right Steve Bannon-linked foundation, built 3 miles of border wall along the Rio Grande in Texas at no expense to the government.  Then he cashed in his $50 million investment in a $1.7 billion wall building contract.  But his “free gift” wall – even before it was flooded by Hurricane Hanna -- seems to be slipping into the river. Jeremy Schwartz of the Texas Tribune and ProPublica broke the story.

    The Covid-19 pandemic has stopped the clock for most of the world’s commercial and social life, but agriculture doesn’t go by the clock.  It goes by the calendar, which hasn’t stopped for the pandemic.  What that’s meant for Doug Fine – author the new book American Hemp Farmer – and for his multiply-useful agricultural product and its once-fast-growing markets is today’s story.

    Typical of our times, the issue of policing in the wake of the George Floyd death in Minneapolis has been dominated by the extreme options of de-funding or reinforced funding.  But Matt Vasilogambros of Stateline.org says there’s another option, turning over some present police tasks to community service workers.  It’s worked for 31 years in Eugene, Oregon, and it’s about to be tried in Denver, San Francisco and right here in Albuquerque.

     Is America prepared to deal with 2 health crises simultaneously?  Well, Chris McGreal of the Guardian US says we better be, because the Covid-19 outbreak has rekindled our national problem with opioid addiction and overdose, especially in the worst-hit opioid state West Virginia.  As devastating as the coronavirus outbreak has been, McGreal shows, the scale of the opioid problem is about as big and deadly.

I like the way the topics here are not the same ones that are over-covered by other political talk shows. Kudos on a refreshing range of interests!

Marash's sharp intelligence shines

Renowned journalist Dave Marash gets his decades' worth of contacts to discuss important issues of the day and explain them. That alone would be great, but Marash's own considerable knowledge allows him to ask sharp, pointed questions that reveal more than you'd normally get from an interview. Excellent all around.
