The program hears from the 39-year veteran beer vendor at Busch Stadium, who shares his love for the game, the crowd, and the communal spirit of St. Louis.

    Forum Obama Attempts to Revive Immigration Reform President Obama is making a push to get immigration reform passed by the end of the year. The Senate passed a bill in June to beef up border security and provide a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants, but the measure hasn't been brought to a vote in the House. Meanwhile some House Republicans are offering their own, more narrow immigration bills. We discuss the politics of immigration and the chances that a reform bill will get passed.

    Forum A Battle Over San Francisco's Waterfront: Propositions B and C Combine the following words: Highrise. Waterfront. San Francisco. What do you get? The answer of course is controversy.

The project has received official approval from all the requisite city officials and agencies but it's also the subject of not one, but two city propositions that will ultimately decide its fate. In this hour, we debate San Francisco Propositions B and C.

    All Things Considered Coachella Valley: An iPad for Every Student? Coachella Valley, a predominantly low-income, agricultural district in southern California, is giving every student an iPad in an ambitious effort to use education apps and tablets to help meet the new national Common Core performance standards. A voter-approved bond is footing the bill. But there are huge questions about how the tablets will be used by teachers and kids, and whether enough children have internet access at home to get the most out of the devices. Finally, there are a few questioning whether the millions might be better spent on other education priorities. The program discusses the issue.

    All Things Considered Egypt's Economic Woes In the almost three years since Egyptians rose up against autocratic rule, there has been one constant: lots of people are still mired in poverty and they're getting poorer.

The program discusses how if Egypt's new leaders don't fix the problem they may face the same problem.
