Beth Luxenberg raised her children to be truthful. She told them that she was an only child. That was not the truth. Her son, Steve Luxenberg, a senior editor at the Washington Post, takes readers on a journey through his family's secret in his book, "Annie's Ghosts." Annie, the aunt he never knew he had, spent most of her life in an asylum for the insane. That story, and a look at shame, stigma and the evolution of care for the mentally ill, Tuesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
