The Daily Beast’s Jonathan Alter joined me Tuesday to debate the merits of whether justice was done by the Ferguson prosecutor and Grand Jury. That transcript is here.
Quite a few talking heads on TC appear not only not to be prosecutors, but to not know any of them. They aren’t exactly hard to find.
Even masked protesters like Thanksgiving, so I expect the increasing calm to continue and tonight to mark the end of the protests. Family fights over what happened may mark more than a few T-Day dinners though.
My annual, “How to get Thanksgiving dinner conversation going” hour will be on today’s show, and my contribution will be “You know who should replace Hagel at Defense? Rummy. Third time’s a charm.”

HH: I’m great, and 41: A Portrait Of My Father is a terrific book. It’s genuinely riveting. I just wonder how happy your dad was when you told him you were undertaking this project.
GWB: You know, he was okay with it. He’s a pretty modest guy, not a pretty modest guy, he’s a real modest guy, and you know, he accepted it. And I said dad, I’m writing a love letter about you, and I’m going to publish it before you move on, and he said fine. Then I started asking him some questions, and he didn’t answer many of them.
