Nov 16, 2017 from Des Moines Catholic Worker

Chuck and Lorraine visited Frank Cordaro in Des Moines. Frank joined Chuck in his opening song, “War No More”, and later in the show described an anti-ROTC demonstration he and Chuck attended on the 15th at Creighton University.

We had some technical difficulties with Mike but he got to be there for over half the show. We had great guest columns from Phil Farruggio, Rachel Finley, MK Davis, Anthony Rayson, and Larry Pinkney.

The News from Moon Rock Lake was especially good this week, based on Mike’s novel Johnny Moon.
