Amy Goodman and David Goodman

There is a small army in this country whose members devote an hour a day to journalist Amy Goodman, longtime host of the public radio show Democracy Now! Even the staunchest Republican would be initially drawn in by her friendly lilt — until he hears the fightin’ words of one of the liberal left’s foremost standard-bearers. Now she and her brother, award-winning journalist David Goodman, have penned Standing Up to the Madness: Ordinary Heroes in Extraordinary Times, an homage to, well, people like them: the leftists and liberals who have railed against the policies of the Bush administration. Today, they’ll sign and discuss the book. Get there at 6:45 p.m., and you can hear folk guitarist David Massengill before everyone starts fawning over the woman The Nation once called a “human megaphone for the collective progressive unconscious.” 7:30 p.m. Pavilion Royale Event Center, 5800 Airline Drive. For information, call 713-526-4000 or visit $15 to $20.
