Rich, in a column titled "Who Will Stand Up to the Superrich?" writes that the issue is "issue is whether the country can afford the systemic damage being done by the ever-growing income inequality between the wealthiest Americans and everyone else, whether poor, middle class or even rich."

Most Americans - and a growing number of people around the world - now eat meat that was grown on factory farms. The brutal, inhumane conditions in which factory farm animals are raised calls into question not just the ethics of eating meat but the very foundations of the democracy we like to believe we live in. CAFOs - Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations - crowd tens of thousands of animals together in their own filth, pumping them full of antibiotics and feed that their bodies are not designed to digest.

A celebration of civil rights: Susan Banyas and The Hillsboro Story

Two months after the historic Brown v. Board of Education decision legally ending school segregation, the county engineer of Hillsboro, Ohio - a white man determined to force integration in the segregated town - set fire to Lincoln School, the town's "colored" elementary school. The two-year protest lead by five African American mothers to carry forward the struggle sparked by that fire drew the NAACP's Thurgood Marshall and led to Clemons v. Board of Education the first test case for Brown in the North.

Are your fruit trees ready for the spring? Now is the time to start preparing those trees for winter and spring. Jim Gilbert joins host Glen Andresen to offer sound fruit tree advice on what to do when and how to do it--and of course it's all organic. Plus an explanation of late blight that hit virtually all tomatoes in the Portland area this year.

Also on this show, Glen has a list of about 38 ways to love your leaves (perhaps you've noticed there are plenty this year...). And as always a new Garden Stumper quiz and listener questions.

Listen, laugh, learn.
