Midmorning: Calvin Trillin and North Korean nuke deal

Posted at 9:02 AM on February 21, 2007 by Bill Wareham

Writer Calvin Trillin spent a good part of his life trying to impress Alice, his wife of 36 years. His new book About Alice is a loving and funny memoir of a remarkable woman and a happy marriage. At 9 a.m., he'll discuss the book and more with Kerri Miller.

At 10 a.m., Kerri's topic is the North Korean nuclear weapons deal. While the Bush administration hails the recent deal to begin dismantling North Korea's nuclear program as a breakthrough, critics say the agreement is flawed. Midmorning talks with two nuclear weapons experts about what exactly was achieved: Joseph Cirincione, senior vice president for national security and international policy at the Center for American Progress and Bruce Klingner senior research fellow for Northeast Asia in the Asian Studies Center at the Heritage Foundation.
