What should we do about prostitution in Portland?

Prostitution is flourishing in the Rose City. Some Portlanders blame it on city hall's decision to let the prostitution exclusion zones lapse. They want the zones back and more efforts made to put prostitutes in jail. Other city residents say that rehabilitation, not more police, is the answer. In the meantime, Mayor Tom Potter has announed a new initiative to fight prostitution on 82nd Ave. through enhanced enforcement and prosecution combined with treatment options. How should we deal with prostitution in our city? Do we really understand the problem of prostitution?

Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program features the life and music of Victor Jara, the legendary singer-songwriter who helped elect the democratic-socialist President of Chile Salvador Allende, and was murdered by the Pinochet coup supported by the US in 1973.  His music lives on, as we hear today.  Also on the show, Bill Resnick talks with Paul Joseph about the possibility that Americans are becoming  more peaceful -- or at least less patient with war, and how that might lead to a more potent  peace movement.  The Well-read Red, Frann Michel, takes on Sarah Palin, and Clayton Morgareidge analyzes the political rhetoric of the two major parties.  To hear the whole show, hit the arrow above.  For individual segments, go to the links below:
