Trump Adjusts Tone While Town Hall Meltdowns Continue

Today on “Political Rewind,” President Trump and the topic of tone. A month into his administration, is Trump starting to realize that what he says may not be as important as how he says it? Take his statements on the vandalism at a Jewish cemetery and bomb threats at Jewish Community Centers across the country: when he’s off the cuff, he’s still a little rough but pulls it together when his remarks are prepared. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer laments, “It’s never good enough.”

Bobcat Kittens Could Signal Comeback On Jekyll Island

Two bobcat kittens spotted recently on Jekyll Island could be an early sign the elusive predators are making a comeback on the coastal state park after vanishing roughly a century ago. Conservation Manager Ben Carswell of the Jekyll Island Authority said Wednesday that motion-activated cameras used to monitor wildlife captured images in late December of a bobcat mother and one kitten. More images taken soon after confirmed two young bobcats. The discovery came two years after Jekyll Island staff recorded a lone bobcat. Carswell says that was the first evidence of the species on the island since the early 1900s. A bobcat population could have ecological benefits for Jekyll Island, which has few predators and an abundance of deer. Some fear the deer may be overfeeding on the island's plants.

On Second Thought For Wednesday, February 22, 2017

We dedicate our entire show to the way Southerners speak. Where did y’all come from? We can trace the use of the word “y’all” all the way back to our colonial ancestors. Cameron Hunt McNabb, an English professor at Southeastern University, gives us a history and dialect lesson. Plus, The Atlantic staff writer Vann Newkirk II makes the case for why “America Needs Y’all.” We talk with a panel of film experts to analyze the impact on Southern cinema, as well as how Southern filmmaking has changed today. From “Gone with the Wind” to “Selma,” what stereotypes of the South still show up on film today? Our panel includes Emory University film professor Eddy von Muller, film location scout Kalena Boller, and Savannah film producer Stratton Leopold. Southern dialect is full of surprises, easy to recognize and hard to imitate – just ask Kevin Spacey. Will Southerners’ style of speaking disappear altogether one day? We’re joined by two linguists to discuss the nuances of Southern accents and

Debate Over Religious Freedom Returns To Georgia Legislature

Georgia Republicans have again proposed legislation they argue will protect people acting on religious belief, undaunted by the forceful veto of a similar proposal last year by the state's Republican governor. The bill filed Tuesday revived heated opposition from the state's business community and advocates who fear it will excuse discrimination against LGBT people. Sen. Marty Harbin, a Republican from Tyrone, has 18 co-sponsors, but the proposal's odds of becoming law in a GOP-led state aren't clear. Key members of Senate leadership aren't among the list of supporters, and House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, has said he'd prefer to see Congress take the lead on the issue. Conservative Republicans have tried since 2014 to pass bills granting various types of legal protection to religious people. None of the proposals reached the governor's desk until last year. Deal, who is constitutionally limited to two terms, was pressured by religious conservatives in favor of the bill and
