#309 - Cat and Mouse

Act I is the story of a pest control guy who grabs a tape recorder and heads for the Mexican border. He spends a few nights hanging with the Minutemen as they patrol for illegal immigrants. Learn about the Minuteman project from the inside and the games they play. This is democracy at work on the front lines. Cheers to those Americans who love both homelands.

As the pressure of our world economy tightens the screws on the U.S, we need our Mexican neighbors as much as they need us. The energy spent on this cat and mouse game at the border is a distraction to much bigger problems at home.

Act II. David Sedaris tells the story of an alcoholic cat who befriends a mink and is confronted by a mouse at the prison AA meeting. David's imagery and wit will put a smile on your face.

#320 - What's in a Number

If you think there is still a debate about the number of civilian casualties in the Iraq war, think again. Many more than you think have been killed. Do you think killing civilians in the middle east makes us many friends? Do you really think that makes us more secure?

#304 - Heretics

The story of the life of an evangelist preacher who finally gets it. Carlton Pearson had the strength to leap from a Christian faith which practices exclusion to a life of including all in his New Dimensions church. Learn more about the Doctrine of Inclusion.

I am not a religious person but I can appreciate this wonderful story of the personal growth of one loving human being.

#322 - Shouting Across the Divide

Act 1 presents a story of hatred and ignorance when a community and school district make an American Muslim Family walk the plank after 9/11.

We are not more secure. Security based on violence is a fantasy.
