Today:  "Times" chief political reporter Dan Carden is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about the stories he's put out in print and online, including tonight's selection of someone to fill state Senator Karen Tallian's final year of her term of office, effective Nov. 1st. Dan also talks about the selection of a permanent U.S. Attorney for northern Indiana and of U.S. Senator Mike Braun's urging Chicago police who refuse mandatory vaccination in Illinois to come work in Indiana.   And we revisit our conversation with Jill Long Thompson, the former U.S. Representative and one-time gubernatoral candidate who began a political career as a member of the Valparaiso City Council from 1984-86.  She's written a book -- published by I. U. Press -- titled "The Career of American Democracy."
