Insight: Capitol Chat / Measuring Toxic Dust at Ground Zero / 9/11 Aftermath Abroad / CAVE Women

Capitol Chat In this week's Capitol Chat, bureau chief Marianne Russ talks with us about the stories and issues coming out of California's Capitol as the final week of the state legislature wraps up. She'll bring sound bites and analysis to the table as we discuss what lawmakers accomplished this past year.
The Battle to Publicize Toxic Air at Ground Zero A local professor tells us about his frustrating attempts to spread the word about the toxicity of the air at Ground Zero immediately following the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks.  Thomas Cahill, a UC Davis professor emeritus of physics and atmospheric sciences, tested the air shortly after the World Trade Center collapse and butted heads with the United States Environmental Protection Agency over the potential dangers smoke aerosols posed for disaster-relief workers.  His work is published in a 2007 Esquire Magazine article found Here.
The Aftermath of 9/11 Abroad We'll take a look back at the ten years following the September 11th terrorist attacks to try to understand if America is safer from these sorts of attacks.  We'll speak with former Deputy Chief of Mission and Charge d'Affaires at the United States Embassy in the United Arab Emirates, Gordon Olson, about the immediate foreign policy changes abroad following September 11th.   We'll also speak with a UC Davis English professor who has written extensively about the legal, political and philosophic issues raised over the last decade during America's war on terrorism. He is the co-author of recent essays examining indefinite detention, torture and warrantless wiretapping.
CAVE Women CAVE Women is an eclectic group of five local musicians who are either attending or have graduated from Sacramento State University.  Their often jazzy, sometimes gypsy, sound draws from the groups collective background in classical, a capella, Brazilian, and African music. CAVE Women will perform in our studio ahead of their show tonight at the Fox and Goose in Midtown Sacramento.
