The CEO  of Baltimore City public schools, Gregory Thornton, plans to cut more than $70 million dollars in school spending, including some teachers’ jobs, to close most of his budget deficit. He argues the state should close the rest of the gap – and tells us the big challenge is not next year’s budget, but long term.

Then – Tom Hall talks with, Gene Oishi, local author and former Baltimore Sun reporter. He’s written a novel about the legacy of Japanese Internment Camps during World War Two titled Fox Drum Bebop.  Oishi will be speaking about the new book at the Johns Hopkins Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Charles Village on Sunday March 29th at 1:00.  

Plus: A week from today it will be spring! Officially. Zoey Washington, our resident fashion expert and CEO of  LITTLEbird , is with us to talk about what to wear for this new weather.
