HearSay Classic: Collapse - How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed

The disturbing headlines seem to never cease: dwindling supplies of fossil fuels, global warming, the disappearance of species. Has modern society unwittingly created its own demise?  In his book, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, Pulitzer-Prize winning author Jared Diamond focuses on the history of societies that have either squandered or savored their natural and human resources, and how these different choices effected their survival. We talk with Diamond about what we can learn from the past on today's HearSay.

The Immigration Debate

The question before Congress - what to do about the millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States.  How do you think lawmakers should address the issue?  And how would it affect us here in Hampton Roads?  We'll talk about it with guests Luis Diaz, President of the US Hispanic Advocacy Association, Ira Melman, Spokesperson for the Federation for American Immigration Reform(FAIR), Maryline Breslow with the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, and Ken Annis, chair of the Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers Advisory Board.

Wednesday, May 3
On the day after local elections across Hampton Roads, we'll talk about the surprises, the changes and what was on the minds of voters when ballots were cast.  Join Cathy and guests, Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim, Daily Press reporter Kimball Payne, and two newly elected city council members, Dr. Ella Ward elected to city council in Chesapeake, and Barbara Henley who recaptured her seat on the Virginia Beach City Council.

Seg A: Crashproof

It's a rite of passage that can turn deadly.  Traffic crashes are the leading cause of teen fatalities.  Young drivers are particularly at risk during prom and graduation season.  On today's HearSay, Cathy talks with Timothy Smith, author of Crashproof Your Kids, and Mary Ann Rayment, from the DMV Transportation Safety Division about what parents can do to prepare their kids before they get behind the wheel.

Seg B: Fostering Care
May is foster care month.  We'll take a look at the state of the system in Hampton Roads with Allyson Bailey-Leonard, Social Work Supervisor with Hampton Department of Social Services.  Virginia First Lady Anne Holton joins us with details on a new initiative for foster care in the Commonwealth.  We'll also hear one foster parent's unique experience.  Author Kathy Harrison talks to Cathy about her new book, One Small Boat: The Story of a Little Girl, Lost Then Found.
