What's Ahead For Guantanamo Bay

What's Ahead For Guantanamo Bay

A federal judge has ordered the release of five Guantanamo detainees, and this past week, President-elect Obama appeared on 60 Minutes saying he would like to see the facility closed. Candace Gorman is an attorney who represents two men held at Guantanamo. She visited her clients two weeks ago. Candace tells Dick Gordon how the men reacted to the election and changing news about the U.S. detention center, and she talks about how working with her clients has changed her own life dramatically. Candace says her fear of government surveillance has led her to close her law practice and work exclusively on her Guantanamo cases until both men are freed.

Biking Messages

Chris Darby saw an ad for a bike messenger job and decided to give it a try. He began in March. In Chicago. Once he learned to navigate through snow, slush and wind, he learned to face down drivers. He narrowly avoided both injuries and fights. Chris talks with Dick about what he loved about that job, and what eventually made him move on.
