    Governor Sound and Fury, signifying nothing.

Observer associate editor Forrest Wilder and politics writer Chris Hooks join us just a couple of days after watching Gov. Rick Perry turn himself in for booking in Austin. There are several questions sparked by Perry's indictment. Chief among them: Could the governor somehow use this situation to springboard his way into the White House?

Staff writer Melissa del Bosque joins us to discuss the third story in her four-part series with the Guardian about the border crisis in South Texas. "A Cemetery For Our People" examines the killing fields of Brooks County from the viewpoint of a former Guatemalan diplomat charged with returning the remains of her countrymen who died attempting to cross into Texas.
