Still another connection...

Again with the connections....

Listening to another On The Media replay, this time of an interview with Geoffrey R. Stone of the University of Chicago Law School who has written of free speech in wartime in his book, Perilous Times. The original broadcast was supplemented this time with a follow up interview with Stone.

Stone and Brooke Gladstone then discuss the implications for free speech of a "permanent war" narrative -- as the of the kind being promoted in some of the Bush Administration rhetoric.

The recently published War Narratives piece I did with Callahan and Olshfski for Public Administration Review relates well to this -- and vice versa....
