Hosts Cecil and Celeste speak with Kathy Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence. The group is organizing with other secular and faith-based groups "Camp Hope: Countdown to Change" in Chicago, four blocks from Obama's residence there. The camp begins on New Year's Day and continues to Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Kelly says "Large lobbying groups, including some of the large corporations, are pushing Obama around the clock to preserve the status quo, wage war and provide for unbridled greed. What we're asking is that the money spent on the military be spent instead on soluble problems such as lack of healthcare."

My error

Hi, Cecil, I called in to your fine program this morning to give the announcement about Imam Mamadou Toure's presentation at the Quaker Meetinghouse. Apparently I gave the wrong date: the correct date is Friday, January 25. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give that date on next week's program, I'm sorry to have confused things.
Peace, Jim Metcalfe
