Guest: Shadman Bashir, LLM, Visiting Professor of Law and International Relations, Dixie State University After a period of pulling back, America’s longest-running military conflict is heating up again. Last month, the US dropped more than 500 bombs in Afghanistan aimed at Taliban and Islamic State targets. That’s the highest number in a single month since 2012, according to Air Force statistics. President Donald Trump last month also committed to doing what it takes to win the war in Afghanistan.

Guest: Jacqui Shine, Historian and Writer Some people called Percy Ross “America’s Rich Uncle.” He had a rags-to-riches story and spent more than a decade giving his money away in small increments to people who bothered to ask. He purchased a space heater for a family living in an unheated basement, paid a $300 light bill for a woman supporting her disabled brother, bought dance lessons for an elderly woman trying to impress her new beau. Percy Ross did all of this in public style through a newspaper column that ran for more than a decade in papers across the country until 1999 when he stopped writing because he said he’d given away the whole wad. Ross did have his critics who found his particular style of charity a bit too vulgar.
