Tonight on Inquiry we talk with SHARON PRESTON-FOLTA, author, marketing media planner, chef and Louis Armstrong’s daughter. Sharon is his only child. But she had to keep this secret because public knowledge of her mother’s twenty year-long affair with the famous jazz musician could have ruined his career. So Sharon grew up leading a double life: rejoicing in her fathers presence and even touring with him and his band yet having to keep her father’s identity secret from friends and school mates. Sharon Preston-Folta’s memoir of her life as Armstrong’s daughter, written with Denene Millner, is titled LITTLE SATCHMO: LIVING IN THE SHADOW OF MY FATHER, LOUIS DANIEL ARMSTRONG.

Could medical cannabis be the next big cash crop for America? What is the real cost of America’s on-going drug war? Tune in tonight when we talk with writer and reporter DOUG FINE who spent a year with the hard-working cannabis farmers of Mendocino County, California where under strict control people are legally growing marijuana for medicinal use despite constant harassment by the Federal government. Doug Fine’s book is: TOO HIGH TO FAIL: CANNABIS AND THE NEW GREEN ECONOMIC REVOLUTION.
