Bonnie Elizabeth Parker, one half of the bank robbing duo Bonnie and Clyde, was charged with the murder of a policeman in Grapevine, Texas in 1934. MU Law School’s Historical and Theatrical Trial Society held a mock trial for Parker, trying her under Missouri law. KBIA’s Lee Jian Chung has this audio postcard.
KBIA's Darren Hellwege visits one of the smallest towns that will be part of the 40/40 project, Clark, Missouri. There may not be as much excitement as you'd find in a big city, but there are friendly people. One of them, Johnny Collie, sits on his front porch with Darren and talks about growing up in Clark and why he's still glad to call it "home".
