Framing the Dialogue

Where Are These Angels?

I was fortunate to be listening to “America’s Morning Show” today.  Quinn and Rose were on vacation and the substitute host was Glen Meakem.  I have heard Mr. Meakem speak before, most recently at the Pittsburgh Tea Party on July 4th.

During the show Mr. Meakem played an audio clip of Phil Donohoe interviewing Milton Friedman about capitalism and greed.  As you probably know Phil Donohoe had routinely battled Alan Alda for the most whipped male on the planet.  For the younger crowd, Phil would be like today’s Oprah, except for being a white male.  I would venture that their politics are pretty parallel.

The audio clip blew me away.  Mr. Donohoe framed his question about greed to try to lead the answer.  Mr. Friedman did not bite and literally blew Donohoe away.  His matter-of-fact manner and reliance on pesky facts provide the perfect foil to Donohoe’s touch-feely persona.  Thanks to Al Gore’s Internet and my son, Kevin, for his technical support you may watch the clip.
