Listener Letters

We hear how our recent stories on "Three Cups of Tea" Author Greg Mortenson, the bioethics of fertility treatment, Robin Young's mercury misadventure, and libraries in Philadelphia affected listeners:

A group in Santa Cruz, California tells us they were so inspired by “Three Cups of Tea” Author Greg Mortenson that they're sculpting pottery to raise money for schools in Afghanistan. Robin Young's story about breaking a thermometer brings us advice on how to dispose of mercury safely. And our conversation about Philadelphia libraries that were nearly shut down due to budget cuts brought us another story of how a community in Oregon took over their own libraries to keep them open.
