The life of Seattle activist Bill Grace changed profoundly in the aftermath of the Munich Olympics massacre. We'll find how the tragedy moved him to ask hard questions about our individual roles in preventing human suffering. Also, we look at the personal toll of blogging.


At 2:08 p.m. – THE WORKS: Lethal Blogs and Tiny PCs
Two prolific technology bloggers died of heart attacks in the last month. The people who provide you instant and continuous access to information through Internet blogs are often working in digital age sweatshops. Glenn Fleishman is a freelance technology reporter. He joins us every Wednesday with a look at how hi–tech works in our lives. Today, we look at the high personal cost of blogging, explore the world tiny PCs and replace the snapshot with the short video.

At 2:20 p.m. – Facing Truth/Finding Hope–Bill Grac
The life of Seattle teacher and activist Bill Grace changed profoundly in the aftermath of the Munich Olympics massacre of 1972. The deaths of 11 israeli athletes at the hands of Palestinian terrorists inspired Bill to ask hard questions about our individual roles in preventing human suffering and injustice. In his work as founder of Seattle's "Deep Hope Institute" Bill Grace puts those same difficult questions he encountered in Munich, to business leaders, community activists and government officials across the country.

At 2:50 p.m. – Father Bryan Dolejsi
Forty–six thousand people crowded into a Washington D.C. stadium to hear the words of Pope Benedict The Sixteenth recently. Meanwhile, in Seattle, more than fifty thousand people gathered at Qwest Field to listen to The Dalai Lama. Both the leader of the Catholic Church and Tibet's Buddhist figurehead talked about social justice and community service. Bryan Dolejsi is 33 years old. And he became a priest so he could answer his own call to service. Father Bryan's approach to faith has changed over the years since growing up in a devoutly Catholic family in Seattle.
