We'll discuss the tragic shooting at a synagoguge in Pittsburgh over the weekend that took eleven lives. And, we'll learn about Issue 1, the proposed constitutional amendment that would, among other things, make some drug possession offenses misdemeanors. On The Sound of Ideas, a supporter and opponent of Issue 1 each make their case. And later, we'll hear from a national expert on what makes cities work, and what Cleveland must do to catch up with its peers.
