This Weekend's Program

Bob Edwards Weekend, February 2-3, 2013 


Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.

In his new documentary Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, Alex Gibney tells the story of a priest in Wisconsin who ran a boarding school for the deaf and systematically molested many of the young boys in his care.  The film tells the story of their decades-long fight for justice.  Gibney has been on this program for many of his other films, all of which deal with the corruption of power in some form. His past documentaries include Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Taxi to the Darkside, and Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer.

Then, the latest installment of our ongoing series This I Believe


New Orleans is hosting its first Super Bowl in over a decade, right in the middle of the city’s annual Mardi Gras celebration.  Bob talks with Mayor Mitch Landrieu about the challenging logistics surrounding those two events, plus the city’s burgeoning film industry and the city’s continuing recovery from Hurricane Katrina.  Landrieu is halfway through his first term as the mayor of New Orleans and is the son of former mayor Maurice “Moon” Landrieu.

Bob talks with New Orleans legend Aaron Neville about his long career and his brand new album titled My True Story.  Neville lovingly returns to the music of his youth, performing 12 doo-wop classics on the CD.

Bob Edwards Weekend airs on Sirius XM Public Radio (XM 121, Sirius 205) Saturdays from 8-10 AM EST.

"One of the greatest mysteries of Louisiana politics is a recent phenomenon: The Recovery School District.

The RSD, created under Governor Kathleen Blanco in 2003, began as a way for the state to wrest control of “failing” schools from local districts. Now it serves as the model for Governor Bobby Jindal’s unwise education “reform” agenda.

Let’s address some key facts about this failed agenda. According to the latest Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) District Rankings Based on 2011 District Performance Score, the RSD is the second worst district in the State of Louisiana. It is ranked number 61 out of 62 districts listed. Zachary School District is ranked first, and St. Helena Parish is last.

According to the LDOE’s own ranking, the Failed RSD is a district at the very bottom of Louisiana education achievement, and Louisiana as a whole is at the very bottom of the U.S., and this makes Superintendent John White’s model district one of the worst school districts in the developed world.
