CBS radio news' hour long weekend recapitulation of the week when the debt crisis was settled and the USA's credit rating was lowered is available on line at radio http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/07/25/podcast_weekend/main711480.shtml.
The political pundits' analysis of this week's current events should be available next weekend.
According to a popular urban legend, Kesey's bus was the subject for a request from the Smithsonian Institute that it be donated to them.

How does the binary choice of "Four more years!" vs. JEB, grab ya? In the "Magic Trip" movie, someone is heard dispensing the advice: "Enjoy the chaos!" Could there be a better epigram for capturing the zeitgeist for the summer of 2011?
Tom Wolfe wrote: "They get the feeling that Kesey was heading out on further, toward a fantasy they didn't know if they wanted to explore."
Now the disk jockey will play "Mellow Yellow," "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," and "Puff the Magic Dragon." We have to check the current flower power level. Have a do svidaniya type week.
