A 'Good Friday'

We're running out the door. It's the that time of year — Easter, Passover, Orthodox Easter is soon upon us

We hope you enjoy our Passover visit with Rabbi Capers Funnye. He heads one of the largest congregations of Jews of African descent in this country. Funnye also happens to be the First Lady's first cousin, once removed, which may have something to do with his sudden popularity. But I think you will hear the seriousness of purpose and spirit in his remarks.

I'd like to hear from him again, would you?

And there are those who consider it the civil rights issue of our time — the fight for marriage equality, that is. On today's program, we get the latest on decisions in Vermont, Iowa and Washington, D.C., that made headlines this week.

And now I have to go help the Easter Bunny out, if you get my meaning.

Cheers! Have a great weekend, however you celebrate or observe it. (Otherwise, spend it doing ...)
