HearSay Revisited

Segment A – Uranium Moratorium
Debate continues on the proposed lifting of Virginia’s moratorium on the mining of uranium. The economic benefits and environmental dangers continue to be the rallying cries from opposing sides of the argument. On today's HearSay we'll revisit the issue's evolution over the past year and consider the Uranium Working Group's recent report to Governor McDonnell.

Scheduled Guests:

Segment B – Jefferson's University
Earlier this year, under pressure from the school's Board of Visitors, University of Virginia President Teresa A. Sullivan unexpectedly resigned. The resulting outrage from students, faculty, and alumni across the country began an inquest into the inner workings of one of our nation’s oldest and most storied educational institutions. Today, Cathy Lewis speaks with a student and faculty member about the lasting impact of the ordeal on the University’s population and reputation and considers what questions, if any, remain unanswered.
