Interview with Walter Mosley & latest book Little Green

Join me in a delightful conversation with Walter Mosley on Thursday May 16, 2013 from 800AM-8: 30AM to discuss his latest book Little Green and the return of Easy Rollins! Walter Mosley is a New York City-based author, whose 37+ book literary career goes back to 1990′s Devil in a Blue Dress. That novel kicked off a series revolving around detective Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins — a Black resident of the Watts section of Los Angeles, whose continuing story begins in 1948, and (with the May 2013 release of his 12th story, Little Green) has progressed to 1967. Mosley also created the character of ex-convict Socrates Fortlow, the modern-day protagonist of Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned, and two other novels. Both Rawlins and Fortlow were adapted for the screen in the 1990s.

Jayne Miller of Oregon Cougar Action Team on Two Bills that Would Allow Use of Dogs to Hunt Cougar

Host Stephanie Potter interviews Jayne Miller, rancher and head of the Oregon Cougar Action Team, about two bills currently being discussed in the Oregon Legislature that would relax the ban on using hound dogs to kill cougar. In 1994 Oregon passed Ballot Measure 18 which bans hunting bears with bait or cougars with dogs. 

Now two cougar-related bills before the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. House Bill 2624 would exempt counties from the statewide prohibition on using dogs to hunt cougars and black bears, if county voters approve. It also would allow the use of bait to hunt bears.
