After the legislative session adjourned, Gov. Pawlenty met with reporters at the state Capitol to take questions about the budget deal. Midday features that audio.
Afterward, to mark the 56th anniversary of Brown vs. Board, Midday features an excerpt from an American RadioWorks documentary about Thurgood Marshall's life and career. Before Marshall was appointed to the Supreme Court, he had already earned a place in history as the leader of a legal campaign against racial segregation. That campaign ended in the landmark Brown vs. Board decision.
