Rob: It burns my mind how much you do with Louise, your wife. If there's ever the case of the woman behind the man, I'm sure you agree, Louise is an amazing force in your life.
Thom: Oh, yeah. There's not that much time left, Rob. I mean, in part, there's not that much time left for me because I'm getting older but there's also not that much time left for democracy in this country, in my opinion, if we don't do something and I just don't think despair is an option and we need to get out there and get active. Without that, democracy is dust.
Rob: What do you think about the Occupy Movement in that regard?
Thom: I think the Occupy Movement is one of the best hopes for the future of this country. I think it's doing a spectacular job of spreading the word and waking people up and more power to them. I'm totally with them.
Rob: And last, what do think about OpEdNews?
Thom: I think OpEdNews is a great news source, Rob. I'm always please when you publish my stuff and it's a great thing that it's supporting your radio show and total kudos.
Rob: Okay. Rob Kall"
