This is Laura Ellis with a special Tuesday edition of this post, since Monday was a holiday and we broadcast a special program rather than SoA.

Call us today with your technology dilemmas – it’s our semi-annual Tech Talk show and our gadget gurus will be on hand to help the technologically impaired.

We hear a lot about prison conditions, but not much about the plight of the family members left behind when a loved one is incarcerated.  On Wednesday we’ll talk about the issues faced by the children of prisoners, and a program at the YMCA designed to help them.

Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter joins us on Thursday to talk about his newest book, The Promise: President Obama, Year One.

Then on Friday, we’ll wind things up with a look at what’s new, on our weekly State of the News show.
