Richard Steele sits in for Alison Cuddy. Worldview’s Jerome McDonnell spoke with writer Aleksandar Hemon in 2008 after the arrest of Radovan Karadzic; Hemon reflected on his time in Bosnia. Then Eight-Forty Eight learns about Illinois’ history of resettling refugees and how Chicago’s refugee population is changing. And Lizzie Schiffman reports on several Chicago communities that are no longer considered "food deserts," but residents say fresh, heathly food is still hard to come by.
