On All Things Considered today, host Tom Crann will talk to Sen. Norm Coleman about President Bush's speech to the U.N. General Assembly today. Coleman was recently named a congressional representative to the U.N. and was in attendance for the speech.
Coleman's colleague Sen. Mark Dayton says he wants an investigation into why sirens didn't alert residents Saturday night to a tornado that killed a 10-year-old girl. Mark Zdechlik has that report.
Dan Gunderson has a story on the return of elk to northern Minnesota. The once-flourishing species has been moving south from Canada, establishing a herd in Kittson County.
Tim Pugmire reports on how the death penalty issue is playing out in the attorney general's race. The three major party candidates have staked out distinctly different views.
And you can hear part 2 in our weeklong series, New Energy from Old Sources. Today's story takes a look at the comeback of coal.
