18] – The US Conference of Catholic Bishops will meet from Mon., Nov. 14 through Wed., Nov. 16 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel, 700 Aliceanna St.  Janice and Max plan to be outside at different times to urge all bishops to join Bishop Thomas Wester of Santa Fe in speaking out against nuclear weapons and for the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.  Wester published a pastoral letter outfling the dangers of these weapons of mass Destruction.  We will urge other bishops including Baltimore’s Bishop Lori to publish a similar document.  If you would like to join us, call me at 443-761-5899 or email

19] –  The final segment of Kim Kardashian's 8-part podcast about former Ohio death row prisoner Kevin Keith, whose death sentence was commuted by then-Governor Strickland just 13 days before he was to be executed, becomes available on the morning of Mon., Nov. 14 . The series is available for free on Spotify. Among the voices you will hear on the final episode will be former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, an as-yet unnamed current Ohio Supreme Court Justice, and numerous others who were not mentioned in the teaser at the end of episode seven.

 At 1 PM ET on Nov. 14, Kevin Keith's brother, Charles Keith, will host a Q&A via Zoom during which he will share a number of documents demonstrating the corruption that led to Kevin Keith being purposely wrongly convicted in order to protect the real killer, a police informant. These documents were never seen in court, but were enough to convince the Ohio Public Defender to more fully investigate the case, leading Governor Strickland to commute the death sentence. The Ohio Public Defender continued to discover even more evidence of Kevin's innocence, such that Governor Strickland now says he wishes he did more than simply commute the death sentence to Life without Parole.

This is a new feature length documentary airing on PBS next spring. It portrays how the Moratorium and Mobilization demonstrations stopped Nixon's threatened escalation of the war. The documentary shows how two antiwar protests in the fall of 1969 — the largest the country had ever seen — caused President Nixon to cancel what he called his “madman” plans for a massive escalation of the U.S. war in Vietnam, including his threats to use nuclear weapons. At the time, protestors had no idea what they had prevented and how many lives they had saved. Register at
