9/5/07 Forward-Thinking… and Nancy Grasmick

I’ll leave it up to you to make a connection between the two topics of our show today.

The new school year is underway, and we continue our educational coverage at 1pm with Nancy Grasmick, the State Superintendent of Schools.  For Maryland, of course.

But first at noon, we have a more, perhaps, abstract hour of thought.  It started with Bob Herbert’s editorial in last Saturday’s NY Times called “Anxious About Tomorrow.”  It got us thinking about the huge changes in US society, ranging anywhere from health care, to technology, to education, to our whole polical system and economy… everything, basically.  Are our current politcal and social institutions fit to adapt to these changes?

We’ll be trying to get the bottom of these and other small questions in an hour today.
