South Korea’s President Offers to Resign Guest: Quinn Mecham, Professor of Political Science, BYU We’re starting with South Korea because until this morning, it looked like the country’s president Park Geun-Hye would be impeached this week. But then she made a speech today offering to resign under the direction of parliament. So now it’s unclear if the impeachment proceedings will go forward. Running a Marathon in Prison Guest: Isaac Wood, Director of Operations for Track and Field and Cross Country, BYU The winner of the recent Draper Invitational marathon here in Utah finished in 3 hours and 44 minutes, which is not too far from a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon. But this marathon took place in the small yard of the Utah State Prison and the eight men who finished the race are all serving time for serious crimes.  What Laws Reduce Firearm Homicides? Guest: Eric Fleegler, MD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, Pediatric Emergency Physician at Boston Children’s Hospital  The attack at Ohio State University yesterday was initially reported by campus police on Twitter as an “active shooter” situation. Later, it was confirmed the perpetrator drove his car into a group of people and then got out and started attacking with a knife. A campus police officer shot and killed the attacker. Eleven victims were hospitalized. And like clockwork, the debate over guns flared up on social media and in the press. Gun control advocates reacted to the initial news that the attack involved a shooter by calling for laws that restrict access to firearms. Then, as it became clear this attack didn’t involve a gun, Ohio lawmakers renewed their focus on a measure that would make it easier for people to carry a weapon on campus to defend themselves. Fostering a Culture of Consent  Guest: Mike Domitrz, Founder of The Date Safe Project, Author of “Can I Kiss You?” and the DVD “Help! My Teen is Dating” The whole idea of consent often boils down to “No means no.” It’s the concept central to all of these discussions taking place across our country about the problem of sexual assault. But is it really that simple? That “No means no” and “Yes means yes”?
