This week's guest is Steven Dreben, author of "Compromised Positions," a novel that explores the dangers of imposing a death penalty when a convict is in fact innocent. This is a novel but based on some real world facts and as such provides a chilling reminder of human, and particularly government, falability.

The death penalty is a hot political issue that deserves some rational thought and discussion. Hopefully we can accomplish this on Monday night.

Steven has spent many years researching this crucial issue and, based on preliminary discussions, he seems far more open minded than most advocates for either side of the issue.
