FROM THE HEADLINES: IRAN - THREAT TO THE WORLD?

As renewed concerns about nuclear proliferation in the world escalate, the world powers are uniting to persuade Iran to curb its nuclear program.  Cathy talks with Dr. Nathan Busch, Assistant Professor of Government and Public Affairs at Christopher Newport University about the latest threat.  She'll also talk with author Mark Bowden.  His new book, Guests of the Ayatollah: The First Battle In America's War with Militant Islam is a comprehensive look at the Iran Hostage Crisis that severed the country's once close ties to the West.

Segment A: BOWING TO BAD BEHAVIOR?
Has the Supreme Court pulled the plug on government whistleblowers?  In a recent ruling, the nation's high court says First Amendment protections do not apply to public employees who report government misconduct.  Critics cry foul, saying the decision seriously undermines the rights of whistleblowers who risk their careers to protect the public interest. What do you think?  We'll talk about it today with William VanAlstyne, Professor of Law at the Marshall-Wythe Law School at the College of William and Mary, and Jack Spooner, State Internal Audtior for the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Segment B: FACE TO FACE
"What Are You?"  The question is a confusing one for thousands of Americans - especially those of mixed racial heritage.  Cathy talks today with author and photographer Kip Fulbeck who examines the issue of multi-racial identities in his new book Part Asian, 100% Hapa.

RISING FROM THE RAILS
In the post Civil War era, Pullman Porters served as ambassadors between the worlds of white privilege and black disenfranchisement and in many communities laid the economic foundations for the present-day black middle class.  On today's HearSay, Cathy talks with Larry Tye, author of Rising From the Rails: Pullman Porters and the Making of the Black Middle Class, Michael McGoings, whose father worked on the rails, and Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander of Norfolk State University, about this fascinating chapter of American History.
