Retail giant Amazon is on a search for a new city to build its second world headquarters.  The announcement has set off a gold-rush frenzy for cities, especially those in the Heartland where the prospect of 50,000 high paying jobs is too good to let pass. What will it take to land Amazon and does Cleveland or other Ohio contenders stand a reasonable chance?  We'll discuss the pros and cons of entering the Amazon bidding war. Then, would you want to study classic literature at work?  Some companies are bringing lit into the workplace to encourage employee development and better workplace culture.  We'll hear more about Books at Work.   Plus, we'll head to the Statehouse for the latest news from Columbus.
