Senator Bernie Sanders on Occupy Wall Street and how to reform the financial system

Senator Bernie Sanders sits down with Patt to talk about the Occupy Wall Street movement and how he thinks we can reform the financial system to represent the needs of all Americans, not just the top 1%.

Reaction to Sen. Sanders

Not everyone agrees with the Senator’s point of view on financial regulatory reform, or on Occupy Wall Street.  Patt hears a voice on the other side.

Guerilla poster artist Robbie Conal

Years ago, when he was an “art brat” in New York City, Robbie Conal and his friends got kicked out of every major museum and public library in town.  He was at San Francisco State in the ’60s and Stanford University in the ‘70s. In the ‘80s, Conal finally integrated his art and his social concerns in pictures he made about the abuses of power and politics. At some point he realized that traditional art institutions weren’t all that receptive to ideas about public issues, so he made posters of his paintings and ran the streets slapping them on every vertical surface he could find. His “no budget” art movement became its own “volunteer guerrilla posturing army” and his iconic, piercingly critical portrait posters serve as poignant one-liners that tweak Los Angeles residents as they drive around the city. On October 16th, Robbie Conal will be at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art for a lively event and panel discussion on his new exhibit "INFINITE JEST: Caricature and Satire from Leonardo to Levine," showing at the Met until March.  He joins Patt to talk about Occupy Wall Street, Wealth Care (his new poster starring John Boehner), Big Fish Eat Little Fish (his previous poster about the very bankers on Wall Street they are protesting), and of course "Infinite Jest."

Seal Beach shooting and open-carry in California

Yesterday’s mass shooting at Meritage Salon in Seal Beach was the deadliest in modern Orange County history. Randy Fannin, an ex-husband of one of the employees, ultimately killed eight people when he walked in off the street and started shooting. In theory, Governor Brown’s new open-carry law would have prevented this, but will it make a difference when it goes into effect and is there reason to believe any of this have been prevented if someone in the salon had been armed with their own weapon?

Love at first smell?

How much does smell unconsciously affect our decision making about trivial things like what food to order to more important life issues like choosing a potential love interest?
