Posted in Salon Episodes with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2008 by Rick Vanderslice

This salon was recorded on Sunday, September 14, 2008, at Dallas’ Buli Cafe on the Cedar Springs Strip. Our issue is the Gov. of Alaska, and vice presidential running mate to John McCain, Sarah Palin. Two weeks ago she was unknown to the vast majority of Americans. Today, she is one heartbeat away from the possible President of the United States. Everyone is engaged in a crash course on this self described “maverick”; “soccer mom”; “religious conservative.” What is her political, social, and religious philosophy? Is she qualified to be on the world political stage? What are her views on Separation of Church and State? Gay Rights? Choice? Morality? Joining salon host RICK VANDERSLICE around the square table in the cafes’ Library Nook are: writer/blogger/poet RJ JACKSON; social/political observer ROY CALHOUN; writer/podcaster JOHN SELIG.

Recorded Sunday, September 7, 2008 at the Buli Cafe on the Cedar Springs Strip in Dallas. Today, The Buli Salon will wrestle with the question: When Is Life Not Worth Living? Is an exact answer possible? Can there be anything like a public consensus? Does it depend on the quality of Life? Who should make that decision? Should an individual own their own death? Should the state be involved? Joining host RICK VANDERSLICE, in the Library Nook, to consider these matters are: writer/blogger/poet RJ JACKSON and social/political observer ROY CALHOUN.
