I podcast Utah Now every week because I no longer live in Utah, but where is the 350 Words or Less podcast? I sat through the entire Valerie Plame interview and then wanted a chaser of Bill Allred and what do I get? Bupkis! some weeks his editorials are included, sometimes not. What is the deal with that? I don't mind coming to the website to watch, but seriously-- either always add it to the podcast or make it available as its own podcast.
As always, can't wait for next week's installment and thanks for letting me watch 350 Words or Less with Bill Allred.

I recently (the past 3-4 months) started watching Utah Now either live, via DVR, or online. The shows have been very informative, and continue to help me understand this great state (even though I have lived here 13 years). As a fan of Radio From Hell, I have found Bill Allred's commentaries very insightful (sometimes more so than the guests on the show). I am glad that Bill mentioned that some of his segments are online or I would have missed the wonderful comments connected to the Valerie Plame and Daily Dooce shows. If they are not shown during the broadcast, could Mr. Fabrizio mention coming to the website, at least, to see/hear them?
Thank you, Bill, for the thoughtful commentaries. And thank you, KUED and Doug Fabrizio, for having Bill as part of this program; a show that gets me thinking and appreciating my adopted neighbors and state more and more.

War is a terrible thing for so many obvious reasons. One of the worst reasons is that it desensitizes us to brutality and makes genuinely terrible things seem almost normal. Such is the case in the grizzly rape and murder of PFC Lavena Johnson. This young lady was a soldier, but she was also a woman in the prime of her life, and her family deserves better than a ham-fisted cover-up to protect the sociopath non-military contractors who raped and murdered her. This crime was so bestial that those who are responsible deserve to face capital charges, and that’s getting off light.
The details of her death have been well documented other places, and so instead of retelling them here, I would ask that we take a moment collectively, to remember this young lady, and to assess the damage done to our shared humanity, not only by this terrible war of vanity and choice, but also by this premature death.
Putting women into combat situations is something that probably should have been debated more than it was. But since we do put women in harm’s way, we should pledge to their families and to ours that we will take care of them better than anyone took care of Lavena. Today my attention was drawn to her story, but my heart goes out to the people who cared about her every day. The U.S. military has called what happened to Lavena a suicide, and that makes me so ashamed to be an American, I can’t write any more. God bless you Lavena. Thank you for serving your country and giving your life so that a left wing psycho like me can sound off about what I care about.
