Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times joins Bob to talk about politics and other news. Next, Amigo, the 17th feature film from Academy Award-nominated writer-director John Sayles, is set during the Philippine-American War and stars Filipino actor Joel Torre as Rafael, a village mayor who comes under pressure from a tough-as-nails U.S. officer, played by Chris Cooper, to help the Americans in their hunt for Filipino guerilla fighters.
Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Mark Olmsted. Every morning as he walks his dog, Olmsted fills several garbage bags with trash from the street. He’s not a neat freak — he’s a recovering drug addict. Picking up trash from the street is Olmsted’s way of making amends and putting the Serenity Prayer into action. [Broadcast Date: August 19, 2011]
