In three days, Frances Newton is scheduled to die by lethal injection in Texas, while evidence points to her innocence. Find out what activists are doing in Houston to get the message to Governor Rick Perry to stop the execution. And the Minutemen are coming! Actually, they already came – the anti-immigrant group known for their vigilante patrols of the US Mexico border held a meeting in Long Island this weekend. We’ll hear from one group at the scene. And we’ll close out the show with a look at firebrand lawyer Clarence Darrow – a theatrical interpretation of his life will take place on Saturday, to support one of today’s leading activist lawyers, Lynne Stewart.

We are in Washington DC and will be bringing you the hearings live as well as previewing what you can expect from these nomination hearings to this oh-so-important life-time appointment. We go to New Orleans, where Malik Rahim remains in his home in the Algiers section of the city. We’ll talk to a reporter about the environmental impact of the hurricane, and what the Department of Homeland Security could have done to avert the disaster in the Gulf Coast. One family escaped the city, but like many were left with no information on the whereabouts of their relatives – we hear about their search for their 101 year old great aunt. And WE hear the story of one transgendered evacuee arrested for showering in the women’s bathrooms in a Texas arena.
