As we go to air, the state of Texas may have just murdered Reginald Blanton, another innocent man, we’ll feature a series of interviews from the death house in Huntsville, Texas, including an interview with Blanton’s uncle and a last-minute plea from his mother, Ana Blanton, for the state to spare her son’s life; also, we’ll look at a project to restore a key activist church in New Orleans that was destroyed by Katrina; and the Knight Report.
