The topic is "The Future." The guest is Catlin Gable teacher Mark Lawton, who will present the findings of his year-long foray into the field of future studies and its implications for education on Tuesday, February 24, at 7 p.m. in the Cabell Center on the school campus, 8825 SW Barnes Rd. The event, this year's Esther Dayman Strong Lecture, is free and open to the public.

Lawton believes that in today's fast-paced world, students must learn critical thinking skills, and that they must apply those skills in forecasting and preparing for the dramatic changes that are coming. "If you create plausible scenarios for the future, your organization will be ready to adapt, no matter what happens." says Lawton. "And if you are forward thinking, you can shape the future you want instead of just responding to what happens."

Marjorie Cohn of the National Lawyer's Guild speaks about the use of rendition under the Obama administration.

Cohn, professor at the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, says that instead of leaving the door open for the CIA to continue to engage in the rendition of terrorism suspects to other countries so long as the process is somehow handled "humanely", the Obama administration should end renditions altogether and prosecute those who have ordered renditions since 2001.

Clarifying last week's remarks on our new president

 Hosted by: Abe Proctor and Joe Uris.

Several listeners have let us know that they thought we were too hard on President Obama last week. Give him a break, they said. He's only been on the job a little while.

 This week we aim to clear the air. Let's start by saying unequivocally that we're still in the president's camp, emphatically so. But we're still going to do what we said we would during the campaign -- call for Obama to do the right thing.
