We need a commencement speech:
WHAT WE’RE DOING
Midmorning — First hour: What’s the future of the Republican Party. Recommended reading: Mitch Berg’s view of the same question. Second hour: Financial planner Ruth Hayden. I usually blog the Q&A. I may do so again. We’ll see.
Midday — Minnesota House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher will be in the MPR studio to talk about key issues facing the state, the unbalanced budget, unallotment, and DFL leadership. Oh, and I’m guessing a question or two about her interest in being governor might come up. Second hour: Stephanie Curtis will bring her list of the 10 best summer movies of all time.
Talk of the Nation — It’s Science Friday! Is it time to take another look at nuclear power?
All Things Considered – MPR’s Lorna Benson looks at why Wisconsin has the highest number of H1N1 flu cases in the country. Sanden Totten’s story focuses on a Minneapolis organization which is training retirement home staffs to be sensitive to GLBT issues. Cheryl Corley says Chicago’s post office is the last 24-hour post office (isn’t the one at the Minneapolis airport still open?), or… was.
