December 8 Week on TOL
The Think Out Loud editorial team gathered for an unusually long meeting today to map out the week to come and here is how it looks so far. As always, there is the caveat: if news breaks, or our minds change, so will this schedule:
Monday: The state of Washington is suing the federal government over Hanford. We'll talk about the clean up of this former nuclear bomb production site that has lasted for decades. What's the situation there now? And what's it it like to live in the shadow of "the site?"
Tuesday: The American College of Emergency Physicians is releasing its report on the state of emergency medicine across the country. How's Oregon doing? What's it like going to the ER -- and working in the ER -- in this state? And how do we compare to the rest of the country?
Wednesday: Diane Downs, who was convicted of killing her seven year old daughter and trying to kill her two other children, faces her first opportunity for parole on Tuesday. We'll react to what happens and have a broader discussion about how the parole system works.
Thursday: We hope to have a discussion with Ronault "Polo" LS Catalani, who describes himself as a "Spanish-speaking Asian Muslim island boy." If he's free he'll join us to talk about just what that means -- as well as his reflections on identity, community, language, and immigration as captured in his new book, Counter Culture.
Friday: The next in our As We Are Series ends this week on a heavy note: people who have attempted suicide or family members of people who have killed themselves. This show obviously requires a very delicate touch. We're working out the focus to bring you a conversation with people who we never really hear from -- about a topic often too scary to discuss.
