« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

After three and a half years, 2,700 U.S. casualties, spending of $379 billion, and no end in sight, a forum at Town Hall took on the question: Should the U.S. get out of Iraq? Congressman Jack Murtha and former Senator George McGovern grappled with the question along with others. We’ll play excerpts of the taped debate and make available the full audio online. Plus: Eliot Spitzer takes questions on what he’d do if he gets elected governor and a new play that encompasses the Dodgers leaving Brooklyn, roller coaster rides, 9/11, and Starbucks.
