Today:   Hoosier economist/writer/speaker Morton Marcus talks about his latest "Eye on the Pie" columns, which include what he thinks should be priorities for 2019 and issues that legislators are taking up as well as other topics he wants to address -- including annoying phone calls and billboards that distract motorists.   We bring you two conversations from the Welcome Project at Valparaiso University.  Northwest Indiana political activist Ruth Needleman also tells us about another immigration-related protest on Friday outside the Gary-Chicago International Airport and next week's public hearing in Hammond by the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commssion on NIPSCO's electric rate case.
