Midmorning: A nuclear North Korea and a pioneering sportswriter
Posted at 7:19 AM on October 11, 2006 by Bill Wareham (1 Comments)
China and Russia have joined the U.S. in demanding that North Korea be punished for testing a nuclear weapon. At 9 a.m., Midmorning's Kerri Miller looks at the options ahead. Kerri's guests include Jim Walsh, research associate at MIT's Security Studies Program; James Paul, executive director of the Global Policy Forum; and Jeffrey Richelson, senior fellow at the National Security Archive.
At 10 a.m. Kerri's guest will be pioneering sports journalist Christine Brennan, who will talk about working in a male-dominated field and the influence of her tough-talking dad. Brennan is a sports columnist for USA Today and a commentator on NPR, ABC News, ESPN and FOX Sports Radio. Her new book is "Best Seat in the House: A Father, A Daughter, A Journey Through Sports."
In an essay entitled, "Toward a Successful Foreign Policy," historian William Polk borrows a fable from AEsop to illustrated the problem with the current administrations approach to dealing with its perceived enemies. In Aesop's fable, the Sun and the Wind compete to encourage a man to remove his cloak (read WMDs). Wind blows and blows harder, but the man only pulls his cloak tighter. Sun instead shines his warmth on the man, who removes his cloak to enjoy its warmth.
Could the guest comment on the likly success of these to approaches?
