Sunday Salon

Sunday Salon – April 9, 2006

In our first hour…

The Three "Rs"… No, not THOSE three… Revenge. Retribution. Rectification.
The story we’ve passed down from generation to generation about these values
fools us into believing our nation’s penal system, including capital
punishment, is legitimate. That’s according to our guest, Judith Kay,
author of "Murdering Myths: The Story Behind the Death Penalty" (Polemics). Also joining us will be Ari Wohlfeiser of Critical Resistance (critical resistance.org) and Justice Now (www.jnow.org)

In our second hour…

Who or Whom? That or Which? She or Her?

Which is right? When? And how much does it really matter?

Brush up on your grammar, or challenge your beliefs about it with Los
Angeles Times columnist, June Casagrande, author of the new book "Grammar
Snobs are Great Big Meanies: A Guide to Language for Fun & Spite," and
Geoffrey Nunberg, professor at the UC Berkeley School of Information and the author of a the upcoming book "Talking Right: How Conservatives Turned
Liberalism into a Tax-Raising, Latte-Drinking, Sushi-Eating, Volvo-Driving,
New York Times-reading, Body-Piercing, Hollywood-Loving, Left-Wing Freak
Show."
