The Weekend Desk Report
I'm thinking about dealing with Friday night's Trump rally in The Beachwood Radio Hour #74, which has been in pre-production for a couple weeks now and keeps getting away from me - thus, it's content is ever-changing!

Like millions of others, I have some thoughts on the free speech issues raised last night as well as ancillary issues of protesting and political strategy. I think some of what I have to say might actually be fresh - there's a lot of easy, emotional groupthink out there amidst both pro- and anti-Trump forces that needs examination and, maybe, a little more smarter thinking. I'd like to talk through this instead of - or along with - writing about it, in part because, well, it's easier, and I have a lot on my plate this weekend. But the moment seems to demand it. We'll see.
