Taliban Vows Revenge For Shootings; Improving Louisville's Livability; NY Times Style Police: Today on Here and Now

1:06pm: The Taliban is promising revenge after an American soldier reportedly went on a shooting spree killing at least 16 villagers in the Afghan province of Panjwai. Residents called the attacks terrifying, as the soldier walked seemingly methodically from door to door before breaking in and killing people in three homes. The suspect, an Army sergeant who has also served in Iraq, is in custody, and U.S. and NATO officials have pledged full cooperation with Afghan authorities on the investigation. We'll talk about how the incident could effect U.S.-Afghan relations.1:35pm: Louisville’s Urban Design Studiocontinues its Sustainable City series tomorrow, and the featured speaker is Gil Penalosa. Penalosa is the former parks commissioner of Bogota, Colombia, and is now the executive director of 8-80 Cities, a non-profit that aims to help build cities that are livable for everyone—whether they’re 8 or 80 years old. He spoke with WFPL’s Erica Peterson about how his ideas can be adapted to a city like Louisville.1:40pm: It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it. Strike that! That phrase is a cliche, and it's one of the many language devices that New York Times style police, Phillip Corbett, would flag. Corbett is the New York Times associate managing editor of standards (and enforcer of the paper's style guide). In his blog, After Deadline, Corbett writes about words and phrases that are overused, but often end up in the paper.
