Segment A: CAN WE TALK?
When's the last time you had a thoughtful conversation with a friend or colleague?  Is the on-line age making  you uncomfortable with face to face communication?  On today's HearSay Cathy visits with Margaret Shepherd, author of The Art of Civilized Conversation: A Guide to Expressing Yourself with Style and Grace about how to turn a plain conversation into an engaging encounter.
 
Segment B: I WANT MY MTV 
It began with big hair, VJ's and music videos and evolved into a cultural phenomenon.  MTV turns 25 this week.  We'll look at the artists, the music and the reality shows with Rolling Stone contributing editor Anthony DeCurtis, author of In Other Words: Artists Talk About Life and Work, Robert Thompson, founding director of the Center for the Study of Popular Television at Syracuse University, and WHRV On Air Personality Paul Shugrue.

PATRIOTISM OR PROFIT?

Their business is supplying security in an unsecure world.  Training modern day mercenaries means big profit for private military companies and also helps ease the strain of an over-taxed military.  But not everyone thinks this new approach is the best way to wage war.  We'll talk about it on today's HearSay with Virginian-Pilot Reporter Bill Sizemore, Doug Brooks, President of the International Peace Operations Association, Marine Colonel Thomas Hammes (Ret.) author of Sling and Stone: On War in the 21st Century, and Marcela Gaviria, co-producer of the Frontline Program "Private Warriors".
