Taps On The Walls: Poems From The Hanoi Hilton

Many of us have written poetry during stressful times in life. Decorated retired Air Force Major General John Borling wrote his while imprisoned for six and a half years at the Hanoi Hilton in Vietnam. He joins us to share the poetry that helped him and his fellow POWs survive.

Also this hour: we look at a state tax that some Seattle club owners say may force them to close their doors. Plus, we talk over the Seattle zeitgeist in the Chat Room with Yvette Moy, Wendy Sykes and Matt Bishop of Hey Marseilles.
