Program Description

1) Two state representatives talk about their affinity for departing Speaker Thomas Finneran because of their like backgrounds and socially conservative views. 2) Floods resulting from Hurricane Jeanne have devastated Haiti. The impact will be long lasting. Aid and relief efforts are insufficient.
