On the 21st: We talk with U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth about President Trump's plans for the war in Afghanistan and his other recent speeches. Plus, we discuss the controversy surrounding the Illinois Policy Institute cartoon that many politicians have denounced as racist, and we talk with two Illinois teachers who think our current political climate means it’s even more important for students to study religion in public schools.
