Friday Reporters’ Roundtable 5/4 Fake C-4 explosives proved to be their downfall. That - and working side by side with an FBI informant.And the only thing that really blew up - was their plan. The Sound of Ideas Reporter's roundtable this week starts with the botched plot to bring down a bridge. Now the terrorist quintet is planning how to fill up some jail time. And we'll look at plans that made it to Columbus - one to improve the Cleveland schools, and another to keep school-aged kids from texting while they drive. Join host Rick Jackson Friday at at 9 - on 90.3.
