August 26th Show

There is a website called Hospital Compare established by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services as part of the Department of Health and Human Services. And the site now compares hospital death rates around the country and shows how individual hospitals stack up against the national average, and each other. In our first hour, we'll talk about the information available on the site, and what you need to know about your hospital. Then, we'll continue our "This American Moment" series with Jorge Ramos, national anchor for Univision. Ramos will discuss the significance this presidential campaign has for Latino voters, and their role in this election.

In our second hour, we'll talk about the relationship between our friends who go cruising on two wheels and those who put the pedal to the medal in four wheel drive. Can't they just get along? If you've been out on the roads lately, you've no doubt seen more cyclists... and more road rage. But some cities are coming up with ways to re-shape their roads to encourage a truce in the war of wheels. We'll hear from both sides of the issue. At the end of the hour, Gail Sheehy will talk about her piece that appeared on where she talks about what Hillary Clinton's campaign reveals about her. Sheehy opines that some of the elements in Clinton's campaign that brought her so close to victory are the same ones that prevented her from winning. Sheehy's article is entitled "Hillaryland at War".

In our first hour, Hospital Compare, and This American Moment with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos. In our second hour, cars vs. bikes, and what we learned about Hillary Clinton through her campaign.
