'On Q' ties to hate debate

Tuesday, March 07, 2000

By Barbara Vancheri, Post-Gazette Staff Writer

Tonight's "On Q," focusing on solutions to the persistent poison of hate, will be tied into a national Internet debate.

"On Q," hosted by Chris Moore, Carol Lee Espy and Stacy Smith, will ask a variety of guests the same question: "What can each of us do, starting right now, to get rid of hate in our own lives and in our community?" The show was prompted by last week's shootings in Wilkinsburg.

In taped segments, "On Q" is hoping to hear from: President Clinton; the family of the late Joseph Healy, the ex-priest and storyteller who was one of the shooting victims; the Rev. George Werner, retired dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Downtown; Bob Pitts, former Wilkinsburg mayor whose son was shot to death in 1996; Geri Daniel, an expert on children and violence from the University of Pittsburgh; Leon Haynes, executive director of Hosanna House in Wilkinsburg; Sgt. John Fisher, who negotiated with suspect Ronald Taylor for two hours before persuading him to surrender; and a teen-ager from Wilkinsburg.

After the WQED television show airs from 7:30 to 8 p.m., a moderated discussion will begin on www.debateamerica.com and continue for a week. Debate America is a pilot project using the Web to help residents of Pittsburgh, Seattle, Baltimore and Charlotte learn about, raise and debate issues in a "thoughtful, respectful manner."

Viewers can also look for details at the station's site, www.wqed.org/debate/.
