James Lature spends much of his time between North West 16th and 17th Streets behind the ACE Hardware store. It’s as close to home as it gets.
Born in South Carolina and raised in Miami, he has spent the last 20 years getting to know the streets of the city by sleeping on them most nights.
06/12/13 Wednesday's Topical Currents is with Humboldt State University Senior Research Fellow Ray Raphael. A prolific author, Raphael’s latest work is CONSTITUTIONAL MYTHS: What We Get Wrong and How to Get It Right. One myth is that the Founding Fathers wanted limited government. Instead, they created a republic, rather than a democracy. Another is the Bill of Rights. It was initially opposed by each state delegation.
