We open the Weekend America mailbag to hear your responses to recent stories. This week, in response to our story about Muslim country singer Kareem Salama, we hear from a black country music fan. Many of you also responded to issues raised by our piece on the group Take Back the Land, which moves homeless people into foreclosed homes in Miami. To help answer some questions about human rights vs. property rights, we spoke with Bert B. Lockwood, a Professor of Law, and Director of the Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights at the University of Cincinnati.
