8/15/08: The Big Sort

Photo by Thomas Hawk

You know the old saying: Birds of a feather flock together. The journalist Bill Bishop would say it's true. He says there's segregation going on in the country - and not just between red states and blue states. It's happening between towns and neighborhoods. People move, and when they do, they tend to gravitate towards communities that share their religious and political views. Bishop joins Doug to explain how our life-choices are dividing the nation.
