On today's show World Footprints brings you an hour of literary fun as we share two favorite Book Club interviews.
Author Kevin Fitzpatrick (no relation to us) takes us through a New York that very few know about as we explore "A journey into Dororthy Parker's New York." After today you'll see a different side of the Big Apple and you'll leave wanting to know more about Dorothy Parker.
Then, former JFK station manager Claudia Oxee "tells all" in her book "Tales from the Tarmac". Claudia will leave you gasping, laughing out loud and silently crying as we learn about what goes on behind the scenes at airports.
Tribal behavior is the explanation of the race situation and misunderstanding we have in America today. Some people practice tribalism and others watch it and support it. Today's conversation is about the practice of tribalism, and those that support and encourage it. We will also talk about what happens when someone is considered a threat to the tribe.
How do nontribe members continue to encourage tribalism?
Is ther an answer for tribalism?

We first discovered Jarrod Lawson via a video from The Capital Jazz Cruise last year. We were anxiously awaiting a CD from this extraordinary singer/musician. He released his first CD this year and we are absolutely loving it. Join the Q-Man and Sistahsweet as they discuss music with Jarrod Lawson and figure out where he got all of that soul from. Trust us, this isn't a show you want to miss.

Today's show revovles around the Florida Governor Race and the continued bad strategy on behalf of the Republican Party of Florida. The RPOF continues to practice politics as if it was 1984. Their loack of attention to the urban community may have worked in the mid-eighties, but surely they must understand that we live in a different time.
It is true that current Republican Governor rick Scott fwill most likely face the clownish Charlie Crist in November general election but, Crist is busy showing up in urban areas all over Florida pushing the Obama company line about evil Republicans and conservatives. Scott and the RPOF must mount a counter to this or face a humiliating defeat in November.
