Guest host David Cruz talks to “Gridlock” Sam Schwartz about the philosophy of infrastructure funding. When it comes to maintaining the City, are federal dollars a case of too little, too late? Also: is playing with your children a universal value—or is it just a part of American middle class culture? Also, we take a look at Latina sexuality with the editor of a new collection of erotica; Newark City Councilman Ron Rice Jr. calls for more strict enforcement of immigration laws; we get an update on federal support for congestion pricing; and we discuss the dying art of album liner notes.
