In this age of terrorism fears fueled by both headlines and hyperbole, an incident at an Avon hotel is raising questions about police protocol and the need for better cross-cultural awareness.  Then, once the epicenter of the nation's subprime lending disaster, Slavic Village is on the rise.  We'll talk to the nationally renowned author and journalist who put the neighborhood on the map and find out what he found different here than in other communities facing similar crisis.  Plus future leaders sound off on social justice.
