Summer seems to have returned, wondering how a story on today's "Democracy Now!" hasn't been headline news, how the "both sides" tactic doesn't work here, attempts to rewrite history, the issue of renaming local teams on Long Island, the Wantagh and Wyandanch school districts join in suing the state for the right to keep Native American team names that are seen as offensive to Native Americans, why it was important for the Cleveland Indians to change their name as well as their imagery, why it's vital to talk to Native Americans about this, encouraging people to watch the final season of "Reservation Dogs," more racist instances in local schools, thoughts on the ongoing Trump trial in Manhattan, why insulting the judge isn't a good idea for any defendant, how people no longer seem to be voting for integrity, the importance of continuing to stand up for what you believe in, red states have higher crime rates than blue states, how the media is failing in challenging the right wing, Kevin McCarthy is kicked out as speaker of the House of Representatives after serving the second shortest term in history, wondering what consumption is, Emmanuel discovers he has alpha-gal syndrome, what he had to go through just to get diagnosed, wondering why blood work can't check for everything, why being unable to eat red meat isn't necessarily a bad thing, how prices in pharmacies can be dramatically reduced with a little effort, how getting people on your side can be really beneficial, what chigger bites are like and how to avoid them, why it makes sense that college campuses are more liberal than conservative, it was 88 years ago today that Italy invaded Ethiopia, a song that commemorates this.

Struggling to deal with traumatic world events, how they brought back memories of some of the rougher patches in junior high school, what it took to get bullied, the explosion that one day occurred, why we tend not to look at how such things develop, what turns people into monsters, why what happened in Israel is even worse than 9/11, how it's expected that the number of Palestinians yet to be killed will skyrocket, how some people have completely screwed up the pro-Palestinian sentiment, the importance of speaking to people's hearts, wondering why it seems so hard to condemn the horrors on both sides, how Hamas is not representative of the Palestinian people, a particularly insensitive tweet from a Black Lives Matter Chicago account, the way too many people are turning a blind eye to these events, how this is different from the 1930s, how this proves that what's been done in the past hasn't worked, the miserable conditions in Gaza and the difficulty of getting out, why these events shouldn't have surprised anyone, George Santos is charged with identity theft, how the lack of a House speaker has made things more difficult, memories of a similar opportunity that existed after 9/11 which wasn't realized then and probably won't be now, how Netanyahu and Trump helped to set all of this up, how these events proved that security isn't always enough, the stupidity of Harvard groups putting out a letter blaming Israel and not criticizing Hamas, an analogy on timing, how peace was achieved in Ireland when many thought it was impossible, ways of justifying Palestinian civilian deaths, how there always seems to be an exception on our side to the rules of humanity, recommending Al Jazeera English as a source of news from the region, how they broke the story hours before most other networks, the issue of illegal settlements on Palestinian land, the effect this kind of behavior has on the world, how the far left gets it wrong, memories of a massacre of Palestinians by Lebanese militia years ago that implicated Israeli forces.

The station is finally back at full power for the first time since April of 2022, the new transmitter is solid state, Kyle invents a word, the subsequent return of "Films of the Year That Was," remembering the last time this feature aired, how the Gyrodyne property near Stony Brook might be saved, memories of COVID, a review of "Another Round" from 2020, the very strange message this film sent, how the drinking age of 16 is widely supported in Denmark, a voting exercise from the film, scenes of world leaders in states of inebriation, an American remake of this film is planned, why streaming services shouldn't be allowed to win Academy awards due to the actions of Apple, the challenge of obtaining a copy of the next year's winner, the advantage of having a region-free Blu-ray player, the hypocrisy in media coverage of the Gaza crisis, coming to terms with the fact that evil exists on both sides of the conflict, the fact that over a thousand Palestinian kids have been killed, how any sort of justification of this is equivalent to justifying the actions of Hamas, comparing one form of horror to another, examining the cause of an explosion at a hospital, analyzing what the Israeli goals are, the equivalent to what would happen in a bar, wondering how to burn the Israeli flag in protest without appearing anti-Semitic, how all of this plays into Netanyahu's hands, a pro-Palestinian rally in Mineola brings out 1500 people, how to effectively have these difficult conversations, hundreds show up for a pro-Israel rally in Great Neck, the need to bridge the gap.
