Tuesday's Show

Monday, January 18, 2010 - 12:28 PM

Here's what we're considering for tomorrow's show after the morning editorial meetings:

Tomorrow marks one week since the earthquake in Haiti, and a natural point to look at the initial responses to the event and how well they've succeeded.  We're looking to compare how humanitarian organizations reacted in Haiti and how they reacted to other natural disasters: the Indonesian tsunami being one fairly recent example.

Massachusetts voters will be going to the polls tomorrow for a special election to fill the late Sen. Ted Kennedy's seat; in a state that's traditionally been a Democratic stronghold, the neck-and-neck polling has Republicans looking to win a critical Senate seat, and Democrats concerned about losing their supermajority. We've got bids out for experienced Massachusetts politicians and for reporters on the ground to note how big the turnout is.

In our work segment, we're discussing what white collar and blue collar workers can learn from each other's work habits, and starting tomorrow, John Hockenberry will be hosting The Takeaway for a couple of days from Washington, D.C., so we're looking to line up some D.C. movers and shakers to sit down with him while he's there.
