Twenty years ago, one of the most pivotal events in US history occurred — right up there with the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, the JFK assassination, and the January 6th US Capitol Insurrection …. Each of these events not only radically affected the individuals directly involved, but because of their much larger “footprints” in the collective psyche of the nation and beyond … each incident also left an indelible imprint on US history itself … if not the world. 9/11 was unquestionably such a “timeline-changing” event …. So … what changed? What would the United States … the world … look like now, twenty years after September 11, 2001, if “9/11” had NOT happened? From a range of political viewpoints and research backgrounds, my panel tonight […]

How did a small landlocked country in the middle of Asia, with a population of less than 40 million people — most still living little different than their ancestors did … 1600 years ago! — become the center of American military and political attenion for more than 20 years!? What is the turgid history of “Afghanistan” — which many observers still argue, isn’t a “real” nation even now — that led to it becoming the focus of the world’s richest and most powerful nation of the 21st Century? Tonight, my guest — “resident historian” of The Other Side of Midnight, Dr. Richard Spence — and I will talk “Afghanistan” … and the unique circumstances that have led it to become “the center of the geopolitical world” …. Georgia […]

Guest Page Fast links to Items: Richard – Rick Fast links to Bios: Rick – Georgia My guest tonight, historian Dr. Richard Spence, is asking a crucial question: “Is America permanently divided?” Regardless of whether we get our news from television, or all our information about the world comes from Facebook and Instagram, there is ONE thing on which we are agreeing: The United States, in the second decade of the Twenty-First Century, seems hopelessly at odds with itself … on even basic “stuff” — like, did Biden really win the last election? There is a much-cliched phrase– “Those who do not learn from History … are condemned to repeat it.” The quote is often attributed to 19th/20th Century Harvard philosopher, George Santayana — and in its original form read: “Those who cannot remember the past, are condemned to repeat it …” See, even “history” doesn’t agree about the MOST basic stuff […]

Guest Page Fast links to Items:  Richard – Rick Fast links to Bios:  Rick  –  Georgia – Joseph  Tonight: “… that doesn’t mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect. “We are striving to forge a union with purpose, to compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man. “And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us, but what stands before us ….” With those words, 22-year-old Amanda Gorman — National Youth Poet Laureate of the United States, reciting for the new president’s Inauguration just last Wednesday — officially ushered in a new era of anticipation …. In the long history of the United States … what now … will happen next? One clue may be found in what President Biden specifically requested for his new Oval Office, sitting just to the left of the Resolute Desk: A NASA moonrock. Except […]
