One Week....

We are one week away from the eighth anniversary of 9/11/2001. Eight years ago next Friday, our world changed.

There are many unanswered questions, and many people who won't rest until they get the answers. During the first hour of tonight's show, I'll speak with two of them.

Manny Badillo lost his uncle in the World Trade Center on 9/11. Janette Mackinlay lived right across the street from the twin towers, and was in her apartment when the planes hit, and blew her windows out... and lots of debris in.

Both are now involved with the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now ( a non-partisan organization comprised of 9/11 families, survivors and concerned citizens committed to bringing about an independent, impartial investigation into the events of 9/11/01.

In hour two, we'll end a wonderful week broadcasting from Los Angeles with a fun look at the news of the week with Lisa Derrick, who writes the La Figa blog at FireDogLake. We'll also be joined by Amy Simon, writer/producer/performer of the longest running one-woman show in LA, Cheerios in My Underwear, who has a few things to say about back to school time....
