WHAT WE’RE DOING
Midmorning — Are America’s brightest days behind it? The first-hour guest thinks so. Equal time, anyone? In the second hour: The science of tornadoes. BTW, I’m still looking for experienced tornado storm chasers.
Midday — It’s day two of the Sonia Sotomayor era. Gary Eichten will provide further analysis of the Supreme Court pick. In the second hour, the American RadioWorks documentary Bridge to Somewhere: Lessons from the New Deal. Can’t wait? Here’s the Web site.
Talk of the Nation — NPR political editor Ken Rudin talks up Sotomayor in the first hour. The Hauser case occupies the second hour. Why do some patients refuse life-saving treatment?
All Things Considered — A festival in India over the weekend marked Bob Dylan’s 68th birthday. No other city has been honoring Dylan’s birth for so long — 38 years. How do you like that, Hibbing?
