We start the show by talking about Bono, of the U2 rock group, who turns out to be quite the idealist for his work to eliminate the debt of 20+ African nations and who’s worked to combat AIDS. The Big Interview is with Rob Greenough and Jim Scheibel of Hamline University, who talk about unsuccessful efforts to eliminate poverty in MN (where fully 16% of the state’s population lives in poverty or near poverty). In my C-Block, I talk about recently speaking at a church where the word, “Beloved,” was emphasized in a unique way.
