House Republican leaders hope to vote on the Paul Ryan budget proposal as early as next week. Today, Nicole Gelinas of the Manhattan Institute talks about why she thinks this plan is a step in the right direction. Also: WNYC's Ailsa Chang reports on the role of neighborhood watch groups in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting; Jonah Lehrer on his new book Imagine: How Creativity Works; Alice Park of Time Magazine on sleep and age; and the End of War series continues with film scholar Jeanine Basinger, actor Denis O'Hare, and writer Clive Thompson. They discuss whether cultural depictions can change a society's appetite for war.
