Friday, September 08, 2006

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof sponsored an essay contest with a very unusual prize: an all-expenses paid trip to see some of the worst poverty in the world. On our next program, Nicholas Kristof and his contest winner, 23-year-old Casey Parks of Jackson, Mississippi, talk about what she’s won. Also: how the media’s portrayal of terrorist threats affects society, and a call-in on being a 9/11 family member or survivor.
