Advisers to the Candidates

Geraldine Ferraro is the latest presidential campaign adviser to make headlines over a controversial statement. Ferraro, who is advising Hillary Clinton, stepped down from the campaign yesterday after citing Barack Obama's race as the decisive factor in his success. But beyond controversies like this, just who are the candidates listening to? Who are their advisers? We speak with Peter Canellos of The Boston Globe and Jonathan Allen of CQPOLITICS.COM.

Tree Thievery

From old growth cedar in the Northwest to black walnut in the heartland to maples in the northeast; tree thievery is on the rise. Valuable hardwoods are being taken from federal land, timber company holdings, and increasingly from private homeowners. The wood is then sold on the black market. Our guests are Jerry Pistole, who lost about ten thousand dollars worth of prized oak and hickory trees on his property in Cookeville, Tennessee, and Dea Riley, executive director of the Appalachian Roundtable, a Kentucky based non-profit group that provides resources and legal help to victims of tree rustlers.

Fish Fridays

During the reflective period of Lent, some Christians sacrifice by refraining from eating meat on Fridays. To help parishioners cope with this dietary demand in a meat- eating world, many churches hold Friday night fish fries.

Blindsight

A new documentary follows six blind Tibetan children as they and their guides attempt to climb a 23,000 foot mountain, led by Erik Weihenmayer, the first blind person to climb Everest. The children are students at a school for the blind, which is run by an extraordinary young woman from Germany, Sabriye Tenberken. We speak to Sabriye, and her boyfriend Paul Kronenberg who co-founded the school, "Braille without Borders" and who were on the expedition with their students.

This program aired on March 13, 2008.
