Unemployment, Life Skills and Cloned Food

Bill Radke

Full Episode Audio

1. The FDA says food from cloned animals and their offspring is safe to eat and drink. Is that good news, bad news or no news?

2. Michigan has America's highest unemployment rate in the nation. John McCain told Michiganders that those automotive jobs are never coming back, and they'd better learn to compete in a global economy. Mitt Romney, on the other hand, said he's not declaring defeat; he's going to fight for those jobs. Romney won the Republican primary there. Good news, bad news or no news?

3. A growing number of schools are ditching traditional P.E. classes in favor of teaching life skills through physical activity. Goodbye flag football, hello building a trail in the forest. Is this good news, bad news or no news?

4. A children's hospital in Sheffield, England, asked 250 kids how they feel about hospital decor, and every one of them said, "No clowns." Even kids as old as 16 described clowns as "scary," "frightening" or "unknowable." Is it good news, bad news or no news?
