Yesterday I went to see Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman as she spoke at the Tribeca Barnes & Noble. In a talk entitled “The Elections, Superstorm Sandy, Climate Change, and the Movements That Make History,” Goodman linked Sandy and other extreme weather events to climate change, and discussed the corporate media’s failure to make the connection. She also talked about tomorrow’s elections, the movements that make history, and shared tales of her 100-city tour launched, which was supported by DooBeeDooBeeDoo, with the release of her latest book, The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope.
My impression of Amy was that she looked far better in life than on TV. She looked relaxed and was very emotional and enthusiastic. She talked very well and controlled.
