    Topic Two – Columbus Day: Christopher Columbus the Franciscan

    He led four expeditions to the New World, but never accomplished his original goal--to find a western ocean route to Asia. Instead, Christopher Columbus ushered in a new era in world history by opening up the Americas to exploration. On this Columbus Day, we find out more about Christopher Columbus the Franciscan. Kay Brigham is our guide.

    Topic Three – Mother of Columbine Shooter Speaks

    After the Columbine school massacre – the 1999 shooting that left more than a dozen students dead in their Colorado high school – we heard nothing from the parents of the shooters.  Neither the Klebod nor Harris families wanted to speak about what their sons had done.  Now, all these years later, the mother of Dylan Klebold, Susan Klebold, has written an essay for Oprah’s O Magazine. We talk with Columbine expert Dave Cullen.
