The Fable of Dodo Island. A story of survival, extinction and the possibilities of leadership. Can Western Civilization avoid the fate of the long lost dodo bird? Would some members of the "Never Trump" classification prefer wholesale extinction to an exhibition of inadequate etiquette? How important are "manners" in political discourse? Meanwhile, we consider the formal flight of George Will from the Republican Party. Who left whom, and why? How much will he be missed by the Republican base? Should an attempt be made to gently persuade certain disaffected pundits back into the GOP -- or should they be encouraged to "depart hence" unto their own climes? With Listener Calls and Music via Sia, Blondie, R.E.M., Elvis Presley and Tracy Chapman.
