    This week, we will feature a return guest, the amazing peacemaker and interfaith leader, Frank Kaufmann.


    We'll be catching up with Frank on his many interesting peacemaking and interfaith adventures of late. He recently returned from trips around the globe.


    He participated in the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. The Prayer Breakfast always occurs on the first Thursday in February. President Obama was there to speak to the group, which is always the case with this significant event.  


    Frank is just recently back from Maharashtra, India, where he traveled to Mumbai, Pune, and Lonavala, to speak on the topic of religion and peace. The Sri Ramanusha Mission Trust sponsored the project in which noteworthy international guests and speakers were involved. 


    In November he was in Slovakia teaching youths, at a European youth training program in humanitarian outreach for the organization DONE (Development of New Environment). He also attended a major event for the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy (ICD) in Berlin. In December he was in Las Vegas to launch a project called "Prayer Spark."


    Frank Kaufmann is the director of the Inter Religious Federation for World Peace (IRFWP) originally a Unification Church ecumenical organization. From 1998 until 2009, he served as editor in chief of the IRFWP's academic journal Dialogue and Alliance, which was named in 2004, by the American Theological Library Association, as one of the top ten religion journals in the world. This man doesn't just talk about peace, he works for it.


    Frank is always a fascinating and well informed guest on our program, and we welcome him back again for his third visit with us on Cosmic Citizen. Please join us live for an opportunity to speak with Frank via our call-in line during the second hour of our show.


    This promises to be an interesting show. We hope you can tune in!

    FROM CRIME SCENE TO COURTROOM-Dawna Kaufmann and Dr. Cyril Wecht

    in Entertainment

    In March 2009, Michael Jackson stood before the world press and announced that he would be doing a series of live concerts at London's Grand Concourse stadium, beginning in July. The shows would be called "This Is It," and he referred to them as his "final curtain call.". But Michael would never make any of the dates. In June "The King of Pop" died at his Los Angeles home.


    In 2004, a San Diego jury convicted Richard Tuite of fatally stabbing a 12-year-old Escondido girl named Stephanie Crowe. He was originally charged with murder in the case, but jurors rejected that and lowered the conviction to voluntary manslaughter when they decided he didn't act with malice, a necessary ingredient for a murder count.  He was given a new trial and prosecuted for voluntary manslaughter, due to double jeopardy attached to the murder charge. Tuite was acquitted by a second San Diego jury.


    Dr. Cyril H. Wecht is an expert in Forensic Medicine. His expertise has been utilized in high profile cases involving the assassinations of both President John F. Kennedy and Senator Robert F. Kennedy, the death of Elvis Presley, the O.J. Simpson case, and the JonBenet Ramsey case.


    Dawna Kaufmann is an investigative journalist and co-author of 3 books with Dr. Wecht. A Question of Murder (2009) which includes chapters about the deaths of Anna Niciole Smith and the trials of Richrad Tuite and From Crime Scene to Courtroom (2011) examing the deaths of Michael Jackson, Caylee Anthony and Rolling Stone Brian Jones.
