In this episode of Observer Radio, staff writer Melissa del Bosque explains how DPS check points are creating fear in the Rio Grande Valley. Forrest Wilder talks about what’s next for the Wendy Davis campaign. And Mary Helen Specht joins us in the studio to talk about her October cover story on a recently unearthed Woody Guthrie novel, and what influence the small town of Pampa, Texas had on the great American songwriter.

Joining us by phone for this episode is Peter Voskamp, for a look at a ton of new books about JFK, released in anticipation of the 50th anniversary of his assassination.
