The New York Times Close Up 3/12/16

On this week's edition of  "The New York Times Close Up" with Sam Roberts, a remarkable political week as usual. Just when you think it couldn't get any more polarizing, indeed it does.

Do we have the first PG rated Presidential Candidate? New York Times Writer-at-Large Sarah Lyall reports on how parents and educators are dealing with Donald Trump's descriptions of himself, and others....definitely not presidential fodder.

Perhaps he might read "Because of Sex: One Law, Ten Cases, and Fifty Years That Changed American Women's Lives at Work." ACLU lawyer Gillian Thomas has  received a rave review in this Sunday's Times Book Review.  

We can thank former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his  New York City Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan for changing our urban landscape in unimaginable ways.  She joins us to discuss her new book, written with Seth Solomonow, "Street Fight:Handbook for An Urban Revolution."  

And the New York Times reporters roundtable convenes.
