First Topic – Acton University
Next week, “Kresta in the Afternoon” will be broadcasting from Acton University, a unique, four-day exploration of the intellectual foundations of a free society. Put on by the Acton Institute and guided by a distinguished, international faculty, Acton University is an opportunity to deepen your knowledge and integrate rigorous philosophy, Christian theology and sound economics. We will be interviewing many of the speakers and Fr. Robert Sirico, President of Acton, joins us today to tell us what to expect.
Second Topic – Direct to my Desk
The Associated Press has reported throughout today that Hillary Clinton will concede tonight that Barack Obama has the delegates to secure the Democratic nomination, effectively ending her bid to be the nation's first female president. Obama is 40 delegates shy of clinching the nomination, but he is widely expected to make up the difference today with superdelegate support and votes in the nation’s final primaries in South Dakota and Montana. All of this comes as Obama officially ended his membership at Trinity United Church of Christ in the wake of yet another controversial sermon – this time by Fr. Michael Pflager, a priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago. We ask the question – will the Wright, Pflager, Ayres, Rezco connections doom Barak Obama?
