Daily Kos Radio's Kagro in the Morning show podcasts are now available through iTunes.

It's Friday again, so we've got some catching up to do on my bookmarks, open tabs, and Pocket stories. Gun stories like pediatricians vs. the NRA, and college campuses becoming a new front in the gun rights fight. Random items, like how it now requires a college degree to get even low-paying office jobs, "Prison and the Poverty Trap," and still more stories about the wild and wooly future of 3D printing.

Oh, the places we'll go!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

    there's APR today and there's

    Vice President Biden journeyed Thursday to this New England town, 12 miles from where an elementary school became a scene of slaughter in December, to make a fiery plea for Congress to toughen the nation’s gun laws.

    Vowing that there is “a moral price to be paid for inaction,” Biden sought to publicly shame lawmakers who are hesitant about voting for President Obama’s gun-control agenda.

    “I can’t imagine how we will be judged as a society if we do nothing,” Biden said. “If you’re concerned about your political survival, you should be concerned about the survival of our children. And guess what? I believe the price to be paid politically should go to those who refuse to act. . . . The American people are with us.”

    Biden, his voice getting louder and louder, delivered a point-by-point rebuttal of the National Rifle Association’s and other gun rights activists’ arguments against stricter gun restrictions. Biden argued that people do not need AR-15s and other so-called assault rifles for self-protection.

    “They say well, it’s about our culture,” Biden said. “The facts are, our culture’s not killing 25 people a day. It’s weapons and high-capacity magazines. It’s criminals who get guns without going through a background check.”

    Biden accused some questioners participating in his online chats of planting questions designed to place roadblocks to his gun-control agenda.

    “They say, all you’re going to do, Biden, you and the president, you’re going to deny law-abiding citizens their rights under the Second Amendment,” Biden said. “Not true.”

    The NRA had no immediate response to Biden’s speech.

    A lot of reporting focuses on AWB without understanding that background checks are the centerpiece. it's a win, and a big one, if that passes.

  •  David, I love the great dead-pan delivery u use. (2+ / 0-)

    That low-key humor is part of why I think your show is the Daily Kos radio flagship program. It's a pleasure listening to it and I must say you've got a great gift for conversational patter that keeps me engaged for the length of your podcasts. Oh, did I mention the content is interesting too?

    •  I agree! (0+ / 0-)

      He's great (and has a face made for radio, too).

      Talking out a radio program for a blog really is trying to fit a square peg in a round hole (which metaphor I worked through on today's show), but if you've heard me spin out all the disparate threads that almost any story can generate, you can see why it's sometimes so hard for me to write up discrete blog posts. I want to tell every story there is, and link to everything in the world, every time!

      Radio's the only way to do it, even if it's a little awkward to try to integrate it into a written medium.

      •  Sure enough. Well done! (0+ / 0-)

        And considering that as a part of the mix of my weekly podcast listening which includes Bill Maher, Penn Jillette, Neil deGrasse Tyson, NPR's Radiolab and Planet Money, Marc Maron you do well in great company.
