This week we’re taking down the Cascade curtain (or at least trying to)

'Week in Review' panel Bill Radke, Pramila Jayapal and Luke Burbank. Not pictured: Michael Baumgartner

The Boeing company learned this week that 140 characters can tank their stock when the characters are coming from the hands of the president elect. Donald Trump tweeted this week to “cancel the order” for the new Air Force One replacements.

Two Eastern Washington lawmakers have proposed a bill to split the state in two and rename the eastern half “Liberty.” It isn’t likely to pass, but what does it teach us about the Cascade divide?  

And in January state lawmakers will finally have to face the question of how to properly fund education in Washington state. We’ll hear about Sen. Michael Baumgartner’s (R-Spokane) proposal and whether or not it will solve the problem.

We'll tackle these subjects and more on Week in Review.

Listen to the live discussion Friday at noon, join in by following @KUOW and using #KUOWwir. Audio from the show will be available to listen or podcast later this afternoon.
