Columbus, OH – 88 years ago, America was both proud and afraid of democracy. Just out of an unprecedented world war and still reeling from a global influenza pandemic, there was labor unrest, race riots, bombs being delivered in the mail, controversial domestic spying programs and attempts to limit free speech. Ohio native Ann Hagedorn has woven together some of the big themes and personal stories of America in 1919 in a new book called "Savage Peace - Hope and Fear in America." Hagedorn tells Alison Holm that 1919 really set the stage for the rest of the century.

NOW, though, the momentum has shifted. Critics of the measure have garnered a lot of recent publicity by having dancers protest the bill....and Wednesday, they put BACKERS of the measure on the defensive in a legislative committee hearing.
Columbus, OH – Several hundred supporters of school vouchers and Ohio CHARTER schools rallied at the statehouse in Columbus Wednesday. And it appears they're going to get what they want in the new two-year state budget.
28 Weeks Later, the sequel to 28 Days Later, gamely carries on the tradition of intelligent zombie movies. The rage virus is back, and two kids may carry the antibody in their blood. Get them the hell out of a London that in its griminess rivals the stunning cinematography and dark set design of Alfonso Cuaron's Children of Men.
