In ten months, nearly 3,000 undocumented young people from Central America have been placed with sponsors in Maryland. What are the challenges as attorneys represent these minors?  Sheilah talks with a social worker, and with lawyers from Catholic Charities’ ‘Esperanza Center’ and with the ‘Pro Bono Resource Center’ of Maryland. Then Sheilah talks with former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, coming to town for the Baltimore Speakers Series tomorrow, about the challenge of being the first woman in that job. Plus, theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck reviews the musical "Next to Normal" at Center Stage.  And in the first installment of our series "Living Questions," Tom Hall and three religious scholars discuss the distinction between religion and spirituality, and the value of religious expression, both public and private.
