Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle and Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart joined Eight Forty-Eight to discuss what plans in the proposed 2012 county budget could mean for public safety. Then, water gets to Chicago’s homes and businesses through a massive underground network—one that the city’s mayor says is crumbling. Mayor Emanuel has an idea on how to fix that--and Chicagoans are going to pay for it; WBEZ’s Sam Hudzik reports. Plus, Front and Center continues with a visit from Matthew Parlow, a professor at Marquette University’s water law program, where future lawyers are taught how to negotiate battles over water access, water quality and water patents. And, Lucia Mauro reviews two new dance productions that want their audiences to rethink bodies in motion.
