You don’t have to be rich or famous to make the world a better place. That’s the message of author and activist Jim Hightower’s new book Swim Against the Current: Even a Dead Fish Can Go With the Flow. We’ll investigate his strategies for grassroots change. Plus a look at food safety at restaurants around town from the greasiest spoon to the most exclusive boîte. Also: we wrap up our series on the US Census Atlas and discuss this morning's Supreme Court ruling striking down the DC handgun law.
