Today on The Story, we reconnect with Osama. He’s a dissident in Syria and, like so many others inside that country, is now constantly on the run. His wife and daughter are now being threatened, and yet Osama says he will not waver.
Host Dick Gordon speaks with Jack Dawley, who’s been to jail three times for failure to pay debt. Dawley says he’s never seen a judge or been given any opportunity to explain that he simply cannot afford to pay.
Dick checks in with Mandy Henk, one of the itinerant librarians for the Occupy movement. After the books in New York City were thrown away, they have a new strategy: librarians giving books out from small rolling carts.
