Do You Solemnly Swear...?
Is there a national surge when it comes to lying on the stand?  Scandal after scandal in the past decade, we've seen headlines about many high-profile cases that have struck a damaging blow to our judicial system.  Why do people lie under oath?  On Tuesday's HearSay, we'll talk with the author of "Tangled Webs - How False Statements are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff."  James Stewart talks about the consequences surrounding the "perjury epidemic" that's "undercutting the very foundation of our courts: reyling on witnesses to tell the truth."   Stewart is a Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter and also author of "Blind Eye," "Den of Thieves" and other non-fiction works.  Also joining us, Marshall-Wythe Foundation Professor of Law at the College of William & Mary, Linda Malone.

Scheduled Guests:
James B. Stewart
- author, "Tangled Webs - How False Statements are Undermining America: From Martha Stewart to Bernie Madoff"
Linda Malone - Marshall-Wythe Foundation Professor of Law at the College of William & Mary, specializing in Constitutional Law

Mississippi Rising:  A Lesson for Hampton Roads?
Last week’s historic flooding in Memphis and the Mississippi and Ohio rivers has residents in Hampton Roads asking how prepared are we for floods here in our area?  On Wednesday's program, host Cathy Lewis talks with Emergency Management officials and a local environmentalist about what plans are in place and how they can be improved.  We’ll also take a look at new trend in flood management called “natural river defenses,” which allows rivers to reclaim developed land before nature demands it back.

Scheduled Guests:
Skip Stiles
- Executive Director, Wetlands Watch
Jim Redick - Executive Director, Hampton Roads Emergency Management Council
