  1. Amy Goodman is on top of everything that is important in our country and the world. I am not surprised that she is covering natural gas drilling more and more as the problems increase. Thank goodness for Democracy Now! Dr. Colborn has been at the forefront of the chemical damage for a long time. I admire her so much. She's in her eighties! Extraordinary lady! Theo and Amy are heroes. Thanks for highlighting their work!
