Longtime Progressive activist Anthony Pollina is running for
Governor of Vermont. He faces an admittedly tough battle to unseat Governor Jim
Douglas, a popular three-term Republican incumbent. Now that Democratic House
Speaker Gaye Symington has also entered the race, a heated three-way battle is
shaping up for 2008. We talk with
Pollina about his campaign, why he wants the job and why he believes his
background as an organizer qualifies him to do it.
Also on the program, host Jane Lindholm visits the historic laboratory
in Saranac Lake
where E.L. Trudeau pursued his pioneering research on tuberculosis. Trudeau is
being honored with a special postage
stamp, part of the ‘Distinguished Americans’ series.
And we take a trip to the Robert
Frost Stone House
Museum in Shaftsbury, where Frost
lived with his family and where he wrote "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening."
