Hosted by

Recent incidents involving the National Football League have focused attention on domestic violence, including the disciplining of small children. Is spanking always a form of child abuse? Is a firm hand, administered with a loving heart, required to turn many kids into better people? 39 other countries have outlawed spanking even at home—but 19 American states allow paddling in schools. We’ll hear about the roles of religion and culture, the sanctity of the private home, and the Rights of Children.

Plus, Ukraine seeks military aid, and when Alibaba finally goes on sale tomorrow, investors won’t really get a piece of the action.
