    The "Bridge to Nowhere" actually went somewhere - do we need earmarks?

    Amanda Dickson learned this week that the so-called "Bridge to Nowhere" actually went somewhere. It went to an island in Alaska with an airport used by 250,000 people a year. Is it possible these earmarks, monies put aside for one district or another for pet projects, sometimes called pork if you're not in favor of them, are necessary for Washington to work? Amanda puts this topic to her guests this week -  author and speaker Linda Eyre, Sharon Goodrich, retired Foundation Director for Primary Children's Hospital and community volunteer, and Nancy Lord, former Utah Republican National Committeewoman and member of the Bluffdale City Council.

    "You do the crime, you do the time" isn't good enough any more.

    "You do the crime, you do the time." That simple slogan just doesn't work for us any more. It doesn't acknowledge how unfair the laws are applied.
