    The Draft Race, class, culture - the draft in the 1960s and 1970s was a lightning rod that lit up every schism in American society. But ending the draft has produced unintended consequences, creating a citizenry completely disconnected from that of the soldiers who experience the burden of endless wars. Featuring interviews with the people who fought the draft, supported it and lived its realities, this program tells the story of how a single, controversial issue continues to define a nation.

    Washington Week [#5718H]
    Republicans rolled out their sweeping plan to lower the corporate tax rate and slash taxes for middle-income Americans. The proposal includes a number of changes including lowering inheritance taxes while preserving popular rules that protect retirement savings.
    Republicans hope to offset some of the lost revenue from lower tax rates by eliminating tax breaks in the code. President Trump is urging lawmakers to act quickly to pass the tax reform package so he can sign it into law by the end of the year.
    The first major moves in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election were also made this week.
    The indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates made headlines, but it was the unexpected plea deal by former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos that proved to be more of a mystery. Efforts by the White House and conservative leaders to discredit the probe don't seem to be working. According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, more than twice as many Americans approve as disapprove of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation.
    We'll get analysis on the major stories of the week from:

    Doc World [#204] Kayak Man/Mumbai Disconnected Kayak Man - On January 11, 2007, Andrew McAuley set out to become the first sea-kayaker to cross the Tasman Sea. Leaving his wife and young son behind, he attempts to travel from Australia and New Zealand on one of the most wild, lonely and dangerous stretches of ocean. On February 9, New Zealand maritime authorities receive a distress call. Will Andrew McAuley's unshakable need to conquer the unknown ultimately cost him his life? Featuring interviews with McAuley's team during the expedition and video footage captured on board, Kayak Man is a psychological portrait of a man bent on adventure. Mumbao Disconnected - In Mumbai, it is estimated that thirteen people die on public transportation each day. Traffic has increased so rapidly that the entire city becomes gridlocked during rush hour. The solution? The construction of a massive suspension bridge to provide relief from the deadly traffic jams. Mumbai Disconnected follows three supporters and opponents of the project: a resident horrified by the overpasses, a father trying to get to work every day, and the vice president of the construction company that is building the bridge. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    The Committee This program chronicles the actions of the little-known Florida Legislative Investigation Committee (also known as the Johns Committee) that existed between 1956-1965.
    The committee was formed in 1956 in response to the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and amidst wide-spread anti-Communist fears in the country. Its initial targets were civil rights activists and members of the NAACP who were pushing for desegregation in Florida. In 1961, Florida Senator and Committee Chairman Charley Johns shifted the focus from civil rights activists to Communist sympathizers and homosexual teachers and students at state universities. During its existence, the Committee was successful in firing or expelling more than 200 suspected gay and lesbian students and teachers throughout Florida.
    Through archival footage and photos, and interviews with former students Rev. Ruth Jensen-Forbell and Chuck Woods, and retired police officer John Tileston, Jr., the documentary highlights the scare tactics used by the Johns Committee in its attempt to root out homosexuality and Communism on state campuses. Chuck Woods - who had been interrogated by John Tileston, Jr. as a student at the time - reunites with him publicly for the first time in 50 years to discuss what happened during that dark period in the state's history.
