Dr. Jerome E. Morris, a distinguished professor in the College of Education at the University of Georgia, will discuss the tragedy at Virginia Tech from an educator's point of view. Can professors tell which students are headed for a meltdown by their behavior on campus? What about warning signs in their work habits? Do we live in a gun culture that permeates even academia? Former Representative Harold Ford, Jr. joins Eddie for a chat on the state of Politics and the heat being generated by the coming Presidential Election. What are the hot issues? What are the "New Politics" being touted by Barack Obama? Who is and who is not electable? Eddie's superstar wife, Taj of the hit girl group, Sisters With Voices, will jump online with him to discuss their life and new television reality show? What really goes on inside the home of two superstars? Is there such a thing as a "normal life" with fame and fortune? How do you still raise kids and get each other's backs?
