This hour we continue our mayoral candidates week, in a final interview with Otis Rolley, a democrat who is challenging incumbent Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in the primary next Tuesday. A recent Baltimore Sun poll shows Rawlings-Blake with a commanding lead over her opponents. In an effort to close that gap, Rolley summoned up some star power yesterday as comedian Bill Cosby returned to Baltimore to stump for the former city planning director.
Maryland is one of the mostly densely populated states in the nation. Number five, to be exact. And yet, agriculture is still its leading industry. This may be due in part to a farm culture that is willing and able to adjust with the times. Chickens and grain continue to dominate, but traditional farms in Maryland are increasingly giving way to niche products and direct-to-consumer marketing. Call it good business. But the farmers will tell you it’s all about saving their way of life, and passing it along to their children.
Our guests this hour:
In June, Loma International Business Group in Baltimore was shut down for charging immigrants for handling immigration forms that the group was not authorized to file. Spanish-speaking immigrants from Honduras and El Salvador lost money to this business by trusting them to file their immigration forms in order to gain a legal immigrant status in the United States. The company claimed it was authorized to perform such duties when in fact they were not, making it illegal for them to be charging money for their services.

Baltimore's Democratic mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, seeking election to that office for the first time, kicks off our final series of one-on-one interviews of candidates prior to next week's city primary.
Our guest, Bob Lutz held senior leadership positions at GM, Ford, Chrysler, and BMW over the course of a 47-year career, culminating in his vice chairmanship of General Motors from 2001 to 2010. General Motors hired Lutz out of retirement with a mandate to save the company by making great cars again. He launched a war against the penny-pinching number-crunchers who ran the company by the bottom line, and reinstated a focus on creativity, design, and cars and trucks that would satisfy GM customers.
The origins of the civil rights movement can be traced back to the “red summer” of 1919, when race riots erupted across the country, according to our guest, Wall Street Journal staff reporter Cameron McWhirter. McWhirter is the author of Red Summer: The Summer of 1919 and the Awakening of Black America.
An appreciation of Bernard Hermann, the acclaimed American composer noted for his Academy Award-winning work in motion pictures, particularly those of Alfred Hitchcock (Psycho, North by Northwest, The Man Who Knew Too Much, and Vertigo). Hermann also composed the music for Citizen Kane, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, Cape Fear, and Taxi Driver.
