This looks very interesting. The son of CIA director William Colby searches fro the true story of who is father was.

“Richard Wilkinson charts the hard data on economic inequality, and shows what gets worse when rich and poor are too far apart: real effects on health, lifespan, even such basic values as trust.”

An actually funny political satire on Saturday Night Live — who’d have thunk? Of course it was subsequently banned from rebroadcast because it calls out the “bipartisan spirit” of looting the treasury. Dems, Repubs, George Soros get theirs.
