  • Description:

    First Topic – In the Hot Zone: One Man, One Year, 20 Wars

    Kevin Sites is a man on a mission. Venturing alone into the dark heart of war, armed with just a video camera, a digital camera, a laptop, and a satellite modem, the award-winning journalist covered virtually every major global hot spot as the first Internet correspondent for Yahoo! News. Beginning his journey with the anarchic chaos of Somalia in September 2005 and ending with the Israeli-Hezbollah war in the summer of 2006, Sites talks with rebels and government troops, child soldiers and child brides, and features the people on every side, including those caught in the cross fire. His honest reporting helps destroy the myths of war by putting a human face on war's inhumanity.

    Second Topic – Endorsements run wild – National Right to Life next

    Tomorrow morning Fred Thompson will reportedly be endorsed for president by the National Right to Life Committee. The endorsement by the prominent pro-life group could give a boost to the campaign of the Republican former Tennessee senator, who has seen his poll numbers drop in recent weeks and has failed to become the consensus candidate for conservatives. The endorsement comes after a week in which Thompson watched GOP competitors wrap up endorsements from prominent conservatives: Rudy Giuliani from televangelist Pat Robertson, Mitt Romney from Paul Weyrich, John McCain from Sen. Sam Brownback and Mike Huckabee from Donald Wildmon. Al looks at the impact of these endorsements and how they shape the issues that matter most.

    Third Topic – And God Said, “It’s Good!”

    Gary Graf has been a sports fan for 40 years and a Catholic for longer than that. He takes the sport of football and compares this favorite Sunday pastime to the Bible--and it works. The Hail Mary pass and answered prayers; immaculate receptions and Immaculate Conceptions; football stadiums and cathedrals; biblical verses and double reverses, plus good books and playbooks.
