I look forward to taking your calls on the domestic spying issue. Unlike the TV writers at Fox News, I remember grappling with this when the president was white and Republican. I have respect for those who remained consistent on the issue, no matter what side they land on. And, I have to laugh at Sean Hannity and other partisan performers for doing an about face. But the fact that we debated this controversy many years ago doesn't mean we got it right the first time. So my question to you is, Did we?

Once again I'll depend on you to let me know what's happening outside of the Old South. Our latest Story of America video release comes from Montgomery, AL.  Chief Kevin Murphy told Annabel Park that police work in Montgomery, AL had faced "a wall of mistrust" from the community they serve, namely the African American community, due to abuses of power before and during the civil rights movement. His apology to Civil Rights hero Rep. John Lewis may help to change that. Annabel Park has the interview with Chief Murphy and his African American colleague, Chief John Brown.

I will also bring you the latest from the Moral Monday protests in North Carolina.  480 people have now been arrested protesting a legislative agenda dictated by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and yet it is the protesters who have been branded "outsiders" by Gov. Pat McCrory. Wait until you hear what Rev. Dr. William Barber had to say about THAT.

Presented by Coffee Party USA, "The Middle Ground" covers a variety of topics with a trans-partisan approach with an eye to finding the place where the two major political parties share that 'middle ground.'
