A law librarian on one of my listserves reminded me that Law Day (see also here) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2008 and lots of people are getting ready. When I looked at the recommended “Justice Talking” web site I noticed that their radio broadcasts of the same name are available at the web site. The program is not broadcast on any NPR stations in Oregon. I can’t vouch yet for the quality of the program (but hope to soon – your own reviews are welcome), but you can find them here and here for online and MP3 listening. Details for the upcoming (3/5/07) program on casino gambling and state revenues is here:
“Casino gambling has undergone a big boom in recent years as cash-strapped states and Native American tribes have opened casinos and entertainment complexes across the nation. In this edition of Justice Talking, we’ll take a look at who is profiting from these developments. Will casino gambling raise the state revenues that have been promised? How will gambling affect local neighborhoods and gamblers?” A future broadcast from Justice Talking.
