SEGMENT A: START STRONG
Governor Kaine hosts a summit on early childhood education this week, promoting pre-Kindergarten for all students across the Commonwealth.  Should formal education begin at four?  Cathy and guests Kathy Glazer Virginia's Early Childhood Initiatives Director, Dr. Jack Shonkoff, Pediatrician and Professor of Child Health and Development at Harvard University, and Lisa Smith, Executive Director of South Hampton Roads Early Childhood Initiative talk about it on today's HearSay.  We'll also hear from a local Chesapeake author, Jennifer Ely, about her new book series for early readers "Mommy Teach Me to Read."

SEGMENT B: SPACE INVADERS
For some, it's a place to express oneself, but others feel it's putting kids in serious danger.   We'll talk about the wildly popular online social networking site, My Space.com, with Lisa Hicks-Thomas, director of Virginia's computer crime divison and Joshua Estrin, author of "Shut Up and Listen to Yourself".  Will new restrictions be enough to protect young users?  We want to know what you think.

LIVING CULTURE: LET FREEDOM RING

As the US Senate gets set to vote on the flag desecration bill, debate heats up amongst Americans over what it means to be a partriot.  Is flag burning an expression of freedom or anti-American?  Today on HearSay, we continue our "Living Culture" series in partnership with Port Folio Weekly by examining patriotism with our guests, Port Folio Weekly Editor-in-Chief Tom Robotham, National Columnist and First Ammendment Expert Nat Hentoff, Marc Leepson, author of Flag: An American Biography, and Daniel Wheeler of the American Legion.

CHURCH CHANGES
The Episcopal Church recently elected its first female Bishop, and the Presbyterian Church USA is grappling with the question of ordaining gay clergy.  Just like society at large, many churches and denominations struggle with the “culture wars” issues of the day.  On HearSay, we take a look at some of these challenges and the reactions in the pews of Hampton Roads.

ALTERNATIVE FUELS
