–Follow us on Twitter at, ask questions live during the show, all that good stuff.

–Shel Horowitz, author of Principled Profit, joins us live to talk about ethical marketing and more.

–Michael Koolidge, of The Michael Koolidge Show, joins us live to talk about right-wing terrorism and meeting David Pakman at the Talkers Magazine New Media Seminar in New York.

–The Holocaust museum shooting in detail, inluding eyewitness accounts and media coverage.

–The same conservatives who implied that the Army recruiting center shooting was a result of general anti-war coverage by the media claim that James Von Brunn was acting completely alone, was a lone wolf, and was not at all influenced by outside sources in his actions, although he has numerous ties to right wing hate groups, white supremacy organizations, and has written books along those lines.

–New right wing terror threats continue, including a threatening violent voicemail left at another abortion clinic.

–Health care talk continues to ramp up, with President Obama proposing a change to the system that would include a public insurance option, additional private options, and the option to keep the same insurance, plan, and doctor that you have now.

–Congressman Barney Frank walks off the CNBC set after what he says was not being allowed to answer the multiple questions being asked of him at the same time.

–Gay marriage and a discussion of whether the Constitutional right to equal protection supercedes any state or other decisions on the issue.

–The David Letterman Sarah Palin controversy, including an apology from Letterman he probably didn’t need to give. We also look at whether Sarah Palin is just in an attention-seeking moment, given that a similar Jay Leno joke around election time received no reaction from the Palin side, and John McCain’s poor taste joke about Chelsea Clinton.
