New in June on The Coffee House: Obama, the Supreme Court and the Chesapeake Bay; a dance about a changing landscape; poetry and acoustic rock.

THE SOTOMAYOR NOMINATION: THE RIGHT-WING SHOUTS "REVERSE RACISM"
She brandishes a Supreme Court-ready bio -- impoverished background, summa cum laude grad from Princeton, Yale Law Journal editor, prosecutor, corporate attorney, Republican appointee to the federal bench, and appellate court judge. Judge Sonia Sotomayor, says American University law professor and blogger Darren Hutchinson, has assembled a "moderate-liberal" record, yet she is the focus of concerted attack by the Foxist echo chamber for being anti-white. Rush Limbaugh likens her to KKK leader David Duke. Professor Hutchinson reviews the evidence. (Host: Mark Cohen)

PRESIDENT OBAMA THROWS A LIFELINE TO THE CHESAPEAKE BAY
The President issued an historic Executive Order mandating that EPA ensure that progress is being made annually to save the nation's largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay. Patuxent Riverkeeper Fred Tutman warns that the Bay and its marine life are suffocating and quick, dramatic action is needed to turn it around. Is the President up to the task? (Host: Mike Tidwell)

DID YOU CATCH HER "DRIFT"? A DANCE ABOUT LAND AND CHANGE
When a parcel is transformed from farm land, to strip mall supermarket, to church, the result is considerable cultural change. Choreographer Cassie Meador of the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange goes home to Augusta, Georgia, to follow life of a piece of land and the affected individuals and communities. The result is a work commissioned by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. (Host: Mark Cohen)

Also this month… "Promises", by poet Grant McLeman with photos by Johnny Boucher and Martin Lueders… Poetry by Bernadette Geyer ("Reading Our Histories in the Marks on a Birthing Table"), Joshua Weiner ("Cricket"), and Sami Miranda ("tambor speaks to the dancer")…and acoustic rock with five-time 2008 WAMMIE winner Billy Coulter.
