“Common Sense” Radio Weekend is close at hand, and it will be hard to cover so many issues in the news.  How about the demise of Detroit? The city used to be known as the “Paris of the West,” and “the Arsenal of Democracy.”Â  But now it has fallen and it  may never get back up again.  What happened?  Was it all the fault of the auto industries’ demise?  Hardly!  We will talk about it.


We often talk about medicine. But how about taking care of injured soldiers 150 years ago?  Author Scott McGaugh has written a compelling book about a renowned Civil War doctor who saved thousands of soldiers.  The book is called Surgeon in Blue: Jonathan Letterman, he Civil War Doctor Who Pioneered Battlefield Care, and you can read all about it by Clicking Here.


And finally, the doping of our professional athletes continues to be a growing national scandal.  Why do so many top flight athletes dope themselves up, and why aren’t the laws of prevention being enforced?  Lots to talk about this weekend.   We will see you on the radio.
