President Bush doesn’t veto much, but – of all things – he’s vetoing the expansion of SCHIP, the children’s health insurance program. Both New York and New Jersey are suing him over tightened federal standards for the program. Two guests debate whether more health insurance for children can be a bad thing. Also, is it now legal to scalp Yankee playoff tickets? We’ll clarify Major League Baseball’s new resale rules. We discuss the legal implications of the Isiah Thomas sexual harassment verdict. And, when is it okay to let your children watch television? For the open phones, we talk to people who fish-and sometimes eat what they catch- in the New York City area.
