First, Curtis Sittenfeld. She wrote the novel "American Wife." And get this. Our show, Day to Day, pops up on page 490. <p>(Soundbite of interview) <p>Ms. Fri, 20 Mar 2009 18:00:00 +0000 editor 18742 at http://ualrpublicradio.org German Left Courts the Working Class http://ualrpublicradio.org/post/german-left-courts-working-class A new political party in Germany has made saving the working class and the country's welfare system rallying points for attracting votes. It has been drawing support from the mainstream parties with a radical message. <p>The party, Die Linke, or the Left Party, is a merger of the reformed Communist Party from East Germany and discontented former Social Democrats. One of its co-leaders, Oskar Lafontaine, says that Germany shouldn't turn its back on working people just as they are increasingly struggling to make ends meet.

Electro. Jump style. Hard style. Hard core. But the only dance is the Tecktonik. <p>The customers at the club are mostly in their teens and early 20s, middle class, and from every ethnic background. They look as if they were raised by Madonna and Marilyn Manson. Fri, 14 Mar 2008 20:12:00 +0000 Anita Elash 18741 at http://ualrpublicradio.org Dance Craze Tecktonik Spreads Through Europe
