A mass shooting at a Virginia park. In the crosshairs, people tossing around baseballs. The victims – members of the baseball team who may have been targeted specifically because of who they are. Republican members of Congress.  GLT’s Charlie Schlenker has reaction from Illinois congressional representative Rodney Davis, the teams catcher. Hear about the 50th anniversary of a flying club, based at the central Illinois regional airport - -theyv’e been teaching people to pilot airplanes since the 60’s and GLT’s Judy Valente reports on Gwendolyn Brooks. The poet and  first African American winner of the Pulitzer prize would have been 100 years old this month.
