Notes, 5-27-21

“Morning Edition” on NPR today featured two stories of interest to truthers, including those seeking 9/11 truths:

In one, Brooklyn, N.Y., rabbi Miriam Grossman talks, HERE, about why she no longer considers herself a Zionist. Compare the seven-minute segment with this article in today’s New York Times, headlined “Anti-Semitism Surges in Wake of Gaza Clash,” in which Zionism is not mentioned.

In the other, the biographer Ken Ellingwood talks, HERE, about the life and death of the abolitionist Elijah Lovejoy (1802-1837). Ellingwood’s book is titled First to Fall: Elijah Lovejoy and the Fight for a Free Press in the Age of Slavery.

Columnist Dalton Delan offers a backhanded and somewhat abstruse salute to the now-octogenarian Bob Dylan. It is HERE for subscribers to the Berkshire Eagle, which headlined it “Still don’t need a weatherman” on op-ed.

Delan, winner of Emmy, Peabody and DuPont-Columbia awards for his work as a television producer, calls Dylan “a precocious talent but also a prevaricator by trade and not all sweetness and light, as Joan Baez learned right on camera.” These days, he writes, “the Bard of Hibbing [is] still on the road, the darkest part, croaking rather than what passed for singing.”
