Morning Shift: July 31, 2015

It’s the last day of July and the first day of Lollapalooza. We all know the big names at the festival, including Paul McCartney and Metallica, but there are so many other less well known acts that’ll be hitting the stages. Tomorrow is the first day of Chicago’s plastic bag ban...but you’ll still see plenty of stores with those bags. It’s a bit confusing and, according to some, not a very good law. We hear how Young Conservatives for Energy Reform think the GOP and the nation could decrease dependence on fossil fuels. And in light of the release of the video showing the fatal shooting of Samuel DuBose, we take calls from listeners to hear their opinions on the extent of graphic videos that the media should show.
