This week on New World Notes: radio program #226, July 3, from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m., host Kenneth Dowst examines the relation of food to democracy.

Getting less out-of-touch with nature through local produce and Papua New Guinea coffee. Recent petty scandals in the meat industry (Pink Slime, "meat glue") get exposed in the corporate news media... but not the industry's REAL crimes and scandals. New product at the supermarket: "water enhancer."

Summing it all up, Alexander Cockburn argues that our U.S. form of government is best described as "fascism."

Music added: Leonard Cohen, from "Democracy".

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "boiler room") of WWUH-FM, a community service of the University of Hartford.

You can listen to any installment of New World Notes online or else download it (as an mp3 audio file) for later listening.

Series overview: Political and social commentary in a variety of genres. Exploring the gap between what we want... and what they're trying to make us settle for.
