Flashpoints – March 23, 2009

We have a report on the spill of the Exxon Valdez, 20 years after it devastated William Sound and destroyed indigenous life and culture; also, an update on Obama's response to the economy and the Wall Street meltdown; we are joined in the studio with the founder of Common Ground Relief, Malik Rahim, to talk about the growing poverty and the continuing battle to rebuild the lower ninth ward; and we feature an excerpt from yesterday's People's Tribunal on the police murder of Oscar Grant.
