The Scramble: Intelligence Gathering, the History of Missing Airplanes, and the Book of Mormon
Today on The Scramble, we'll talk about a system run by the Navy that keeps track of, among other things, parking tickets and field information cards filled out by police, even when no crime has occurred - is this data collection crossing a line?
Then, we'll hear from aviation safety expert Rinker Buck on the surprising history of aviation accidents at sea, and what we should reasonably expect and not expect to find out about the missing Malaysian flight.
Finally, our Superguest Alex Beam will enlighten us on how Mormons react to The Book of Mormon (now playing at the Bushnell), and more.
