Death Threat aimed at Joe Uris

program date: 
Tue, 06/02/2009

 One of this week's topics for discussion was the recent murder of Dr. Tiller, a Women's Health Professional that provided abortions when they were needed.  The idea that killing health care providers could be considered a form of domestic terrorism came up, and apparently really angered one of our listeners.  Someone called in, identified himself as "Joe", and threatened to kill Joe Uris for bringing the topic to the table.

The threat and obscenity did not go out over the air, as the FCC would not allow that, but it is included here to foster discussion.

Discussion with film makers Vassiliki Katrivanou and Bushra Azzouz
In the spring of 2004, Maria, a Greek Cypriot, and Zehra, a Turkish Cypriot, cross to opposite sides of the green line, which has divided Cyprus since the war of 1974, to visit family homes they have not seen for thirty years. Thus begins the personal journey of these women haunted by war and pain, but searching for reconciliation and common ground. On the eve of the U.N. referendum to reunite the divided island, many buried stories from the past emerge.

Race and Recession: An Interview with Seth Wessler

The current recession is not an equal opportunity crisis. People of color are experiencing job loss, foreclosures and lack of healthcare at alarmingly higher rates than white Americans. These disparities are not a coincidence but rather the result of structural barriers that have been taking a toll on people of color long before the subprime meltdown.
