Music Break: Simple Song of Freedom, Bobby Darin’s song performed by The Voices of East Harlem
Guest 2: Jane Klein talks of her support of her husband Ed Rosenthal in their 30-year marriage, and the stressfull time in 2003 when she was a mother of teenagers and Ed was charged and convicted of marijuana distribution by the U.S. Federal Government. The sentencing became a national spectacle as the jurors came forward to complain that all information concerning California state’s medical marijuana law was withheld from them, including that the City of Oakland appointed Ed to set up their medical marijuana municipal program. As a result of the public uproar, Ed was only sentenced to time served in stead of facing many years in prison.
Jane also encouraged attending the special event raising money for Seva Foundations’s work, especially in Nepal after this last devastating earthquake. The event is Wavy Gravy’s 79th Birthday Party at the Sonoma Mountain Event Center on May 17th 3 – 10 pm. Visit the Seva site for more information.
