Radio Smart Talk for Friday, March 2:

 Friday's Radio Smart Talk will be made up of three separate segments.

Earlier this week, the Pentagon said the unidentified remains of passengers from United Flight 93 that crashed near Shanksville, PA on September 11, 2001 had been sent to the military mortuary at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware and eventually disposed of in a landfill.

Somerset County Coroner Wallace Miller immediately denied any remains had gone to Dover and said that unidentified remains had been buried near the crash site.

The Air Force backed off later in the week and agreed.

Miller will explain on Friday's program.  

THe photograph to the right is what the Flight 93 crash site looks like today.

Also, Carl Kasell, the host of NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me program and a longtime NPR Morning Edition anchor will discuss his career.  Kasell will join the Gettysburg College Wind Symphony on stage Friday night.

Dr. Todd Baker, the author of the new book Baghdad ER 15 Minutes will also join us to talk about his time working as an emergency treatment doctor in Iraq.
