The Jack Rice Show, Wednesday, February 7, 2007.

Jack talked about Prince's Super Bowl halftime show as some people are saying his silhouette could be misconstrued as a "malfunction." Are people being to paranoid and simply looking to be offended?

The Darfur region in Sudan has become synonymous with genocide. More than 200,000 people have been murdered and more than 2,000,000 people have been displaced. John Ukec Lueth Ukec, Sudanese Ambassador to the U.S. joins Jack in studio to talk about the region and what the Sudanese government is doing about it. Some say that it is the government that has been non-responsive and is more responsible than any other for the problem. Jack asks the hard questions.

One of the big issues in the last elections and for the coming elections is stem cell research. Dan Koffman, researcher at the Stem Cell Institute at the U of M and Nancy Millard a mother of stem cell recipient discuss the difference between using stem cells and embryonic stem cells. The MN is debating whether they should fund embryonic stem cell research. Governor Tim Pawlenty has already said that he would veto such a bill.
