Topics: Stem-Cell Research: The Future, and Update on Inaugural
The featured guest will be filmmaker Jessica Gerstle, whose movie,
"The Accidental Advocate," chronicles the moving quest of her
surgeon father, Claude Gerstle, who was recently paralyzed, to seek
answers on stem-cell research and what is holding it up.
Jessica will address the complex barriers to full stem-cell
research, thanks to religious-right incursions into the federal
bureaucracy. The hosts will also update the new inaugural prayer
challenge and discuss the dangers of politicians, such as Roland W.
Burris, believing they are "anointed by God."
