Intolerance and Rejection Justin Bachman is not in this race alone. In 2010, he was disqualified from a cross country race because an official did not understand outbursts brought on by his Tourette's syndrome. Now, he's part of a diverse field carrying the baton for tolerance. Thursday we'll tell you how that one incident caused Justin's family to create a "Tolerance Fair" that has grown so big it will fill the IX Center this weekend. Join Mike McIntyre for a conversation with Justin and his parents. He'll also talk with the producers of the documentary film "Reject." Joins us at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
