Soused Soothsayer

Tomorrow on the First Team of the Northern Alliance Radio Network we'll be discussing the on-going collapse that could result in years of painful consequences down the road. We'll also talk about the stock market crash.

At noon, we'll be joined the Bill Kaufman author of Forgotten Founder, Drunken Prophet: The Life of Luther Martin. Martin was a verbose drunken radical who warned against the excesses of a strong central government. He took part in the Constitutional convention in Philadelphia and was a leading Anti-Federalist of the time. He also liked to overindulge in spirits, a habit he defended by explaining:

In the heat of the summer my health requires that I should drink in adundance to supply the amazing waste from my perspiration.

It was all for medicinal purposes you see. Interestingly enough, that's same rationale that Mitch Berg used to explain his frequent trips to the bar during the Patriot Vice Presidential Debate party at Trocaderos last week.

As always, tune in to all six hours of the NARN on AM1280 The Patriot from 11am to 5pm.
