We’re joined by Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Richard Posner, who argues that the U.S. government is not prepared to protect citizens from disasters. Then, we bring you the personal story of one soldier’s time in Iraq and the experiences that caused him to change his opinion of the war. And, Chicago Public Radio’s Lucia Mauro talks with a man whose roots in Vietnam shape the dances he choreographs.
Plus, we talk to Sadhu Johnston, Commissioner of the City of Chicago Department of Environment, about what the city is doing to help residents deal with the high cost of heat, and the Chicago Tribune’s Michael Hawthorne tells us why high electricity costs may be bad news for the Great Lakes. Plus, we find out why some environmentalists are opposed to dredging the St. Lawrence Seaway.
On Friday, November 11, tune in to 91.5 FM at 10:30 a.m. CT to hear Kevin and Marshall interviewed on Chicago Public Radio’s daytime radio show “848.” Hear the guys field questions at the end of the show about the origins and future of CAbP, the new self-titled album and the CD Release Party on Saturday, November 12. You can listen online at http://www.wbez.org/audio_library/ram/livefeed/livefeed.ram.
We in CAbP feel it’s important to give back to the community in which the source of our music began. As such, we will be donating a percentage of all CD sales of our new album to Journalists Against AIDS Nigeria (JAAIDS), a non-profit group based in Lagos, Nigeria that develops innovative communication programs to help battle AIDS in Nigeria.
In addition to donating a percentage of CD proceeds, we will also be donating a percentage of the proceeds from our CD Release Celebration on November 12, 2005. We are hopeful that a representative from JAAIDS can speak a bit about the organization, but we are still working on the logistics. We’ll keep you posted.
