Radio Free Tobruk's motto is Freedom or Death. Until two weeks ago, it was a mouthpiece of the Gadhafi regime.

Earlier this month, Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) announced that she was resigning to become president of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

The battle between those who support the government of Moammar Gadhafi and those calling for him to step down rages in the city of Benghazi, Libya.

"I'm about 5-foot-6," Frances Fox Piven tells Weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz. "I'm 78 years old. My hair is partly grey. I'm quite thin."
Piven is a professor at the City College of New York. In 1966, she and her late husband, Richard Cloward, wrote an article for The Nation outlining a plan to help the poor of New York and other big cities to get on welfare.
