New World Notes: #580 -- Jean Shepherd: The Great Hamburger Blowup, Segment 1

4 jours 4 heures ago
Classic broadcast from 1965 by radio's great humorist-satirist-storyteller, Jean Shepherd. Condensed by K.D. With wit and humor, Shepherd reflects on adolescent psychology ... on being "shot down" ... on traumatic experiences ... and on the absurd prose on the back of packages--notably Official World's Fair Toothpicks. Then he tells a story from his childhood: how he snuck into a Ukrainian-American picnic, pretended to speak Ukrainian, and--to his later regret--consumed 17 hamburgers.

After the dirty deed, Booth bolts D.C. with Ed Henson (Hynson) only minutes behind. They join up in the Maryland countryside. David Herold, who was not in D.C. during the assassination, is picked up hungover at his home in Maryland on suspicion. A day later, Herold is in the custody of a posse of National Detective Police officers using him as bait to find other conspirators. The posse does land one: James Boyd, the one who was supposed to have kidnapped Lincoln. That night Herold and Boyd escape the posse and head for Virginia. From this moment on, two pairs of fugitives are on the loose in Lower Maryland. Booth and Henson and Boyd and Herold had hoped to hitch a ride on one of two ships—Booth to the Indian Queen in the Patuxent and Boyd to the Indian Prince in Nanjemoy Creek, an eastern inlet off the Potomac River. Both vessels had been conscripted to transport the kidnappers and possibly Lincoln. But the ship captains, waiting longer than they should have, know something is amiss and take their ships into Chesapeake Bay, leaving all to fend for themselves. Not very far in front of Boyd and Herold, Booth and Henson—without a captive Lincoln—change plans and hunker down near Pope’s Creek to stage a crossing of the Potomac. Boyd and Herold travel farther west to Nanjemoy Creek to prepare for their crossing. Both pairs take crude ferries across the Potomac and the Rappahannock rivers. But not long after the second crossing, both pairs, unaware of each other’s presence and proximity, make decisions that will bring death to one and freedom to the other.

The Alembic Files: Phantasms of Freedom, Part 10, Segment 1

4 jours 8 heures ago
How well do we know the history of our nation? As for our Founders, what is fact? What is myth? While we have been told we are free, we face an increasing onslaught of laws, edicts, and proclamations governing our lives as American citizens. We have been told that “we need to get our Constitution back.” Do we truly need to do that? We are, during every election cycle, given a “choice.” But is it a real choice? Or a Hobson’s choice? Were our Founders the godlike, towering figures we were taught? Were they above reproach? Or were they human beings, subject to the same avarice, temptations and lust we all are? What were their motivations in starting this country? Were they benign in nature, inspired to offer their fellow countrymen “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?” Or were there other instincts at play? Was the Constitution truly designed to be the bulwark of freedom? Why were the Articles of Confederation jettisoned? Who were the Anti-Federalists? Why did they get such short shrift by history? What was the worth of the Founders? Were they Everymen? Or rich elites? The answers, when explored from an “unofficial” vantage point, may surprise you. Listen along as Eric the Blacksmith discusses American history with Al Aric and Theo. Current events are interspersed. Explore the nooks and crannies of suppressed information as the book “Hologram of Liberty” by Kenneth Royce is reviewed and its bibliography examined.
