Thom just read The Straight Story's post on his show.
I think it's live -- on Free Speech TV?

Well done, Thom Hartmann, well done The Straight Story. :grouphug:

2. If Hartmann asked for disciples to travel the world with him, I'd grow my beard out and join
I dig his books and enjoy his show (and Malloy) damn near exclusively on a daily basis.

4. Good. His story should be sent straight to Obama and Congress.
No one should have to live like that in this country.

36. a really powerful piece of writing
Straight Story, you should be a columnist at a newspaper or a writer. You are really very good. You're one of my favorite DU'ers ... I read all your posts, they are always interesting.

14. I agree...while I was reading it I thought
this has to get a wider audience. This is not an isolated story...multiply it by how many I wonder. Too damn many that's for sure.I bet everyone knows of friends or family that have similar horror stories and struggles.

This can't continue!

18. multiply the unnecessary suffering and absolute sadness
there is so much out there.
It really is completely unacceptable, yet, here we are.

17. Anyone who can read The Straight Story's story and NOT be pissed off
is not human.

Thank you Tom Hartmann for spreading this account to a wider audience.

19. Thom was instrumental in helping us raise funds for Andy.
Looking back after the intervening years of scams, I don't know how most people did a gut check and realized it was for real and on the level. But, Thom did, immediately.

27. I didn't know that-Thom raising money for Andy. Glad straightstory received this exposure. It
punctuates why this health care bill is not going to help those who need it most.

30. Can we get Thom to run for office?
Seems Air America is a gateway to public office these days. He would be outstanding.

35. Not enough
hours in the day. I used to stream AA but my new job is too mobile to listen.

I get home to Olbermann and Maddow and to sleep with Stewart and Colbert. Not much time left.

Too bad. Gotta watch Dirty Jobs and Mythbusters though!

42. Apparently, the 3rd hour of his show is televised on FSTV.
That's what I was watching. Maybe someone who knows how can fish it out of TH's archives or maybe someone from the show (hint!) will post it to DU. :hi:

48. We have dishnet. No FSTV on directv, either.
And when I checked, it looks like Thom's archives require a paid membership. Maybe someone at the show will have mercy on us. :)

46. Thom Hartmann follows DU regularly
He has played our Freedom Toast music in his intermissions, too.

Vox Populi and all that. At least someone is listening.
