My interview with author/jounalist and under-rated humorist Greg Palast can be found HERE.
When I spoke to him on the phone Tuesday morning I reminded him that we had spoken about now-indicted former Sen. Manny Aragon and his ties with the Wackenhut (now GEO) private prison corporation a couple of years ago. That led to Palast referring to Aragon as "the little pustulous pimple that stood out" over other local politicos.
Apparently "pustulous" is a word that his been on Greg's mind lately. Looking at his Web site this morning I found it used again, though this time applied to "The pustulous press jackals may tear at (Alec Baldwin's) flesh."
Palast is speaking tonight at The Lensic Performing Arts Center.

The book signing starts at 6 p.m., his talk at 7 p.m.
