This week on Sunday Salon…
A look at pressing National and State issues.
In our first hour:
According to a report by the Public Policy Institute of California, "Since 1990, the number of prisoners in
California has risen three times faster than the state’s overall adult population, to almost 168,000 prisoners in 2005." In this hour we will speak with one of the authors of this report, along with people working both in and out of the California prison system.
And, in our second hour…
With possibly full Congressional approval of Bush’s warrantless spying program a look back at the NSA could not be more timely. This hour will include excerpts from the hearings as well as thoughtful analysis from Constitutional Rights scholars.
