You can't live in Tucson without constantly thinking about borders. The Sonoran desert is divided by a fence at the U.S.-Mexico border. Tucson is a liberal bastion separated from the rest of a staunchly conservative state. And the city itself is criss-crossed by highly charged boundaries -- cultural, economic and political.
Al Letson takes listeners to this desert city to hear stories about dividing lines, and what happens when people cross them: sometimes risking their lives, and sometimes their reputations... and once in a while, against the odds, finding harmony in difference. State of the Re:Union with Al Letson "Tucson, Arizona" airs Sunday, November 11, 2012 at 9 p.m. on AM 1370/FM-HD 91.5-2.
