FROM THIS EPISODE

Anti-war protests were a fact of American life in the 1960-s and 70-s. As the Vietnam War dragged on and casualties mounted, the anti-war movement became a major force in bringing an end to the War in Vietnam. Now, as America-s leaders are proposing another large-scale military action against Iraq, activists are organizing again, this time for very different reasons. With the threat of the Soviet Union gone, a changed political landscape, and young Americans no longer subject to the military draft, can activists form a united front that can have an impact on policy making? We talk to peace activists, past and present--including Tom Hayden, syndicated columnist Jim Pinkerton, writer Marc Cooper and members of the International Action Center and American Friends Service Committee--about their chances of making a difference now.
  • Newsmaker: Horse Trading at the UN
    Now that President Bush has addressed the United Nations, what happens next? Today-s Los Angeles Times reports that UN support for war on Iraq may come down to -cash, weapons, business deals and favors.- Paul Richter, who co-wrote the story, compares the next stage of high-level diplomacy to a horse-trade that will guarantee the extension of oil and business contracts for Security Council member nations.
  • Reporter's Notebook: Sandy Koufax: A -Reluctantly Tolerated- Biography
    Monday is the Day of Atonement, a time for solemn reflection for Jews around the world. One American who dramatized the depth of his faith in a surprising way was the great Dodger pitcher, Sandy Koufax, who refused to pitch a 1965 World Series game against the Minnesota Twins because it fell on Yom Kippur. Jane Leavy, author of Koufax's -reluctantly tolerated- biography, looks at the star player who shunned stardom.
