Here and Now Today: More on bin Laden, Gas Prices, and Kentucky Derby Lore

by Todd Mundt on May 4, 2011

The number of questions around what happened during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound is growing. New details have emerged, and the Obama administration had to backtrack yesterday, saying, among other things, that Bin Laden did not have a gun, and his wife was not used as a human shield by him. We’ll get an update.

Oil prices are at the highest level in nearly three years, and gas prices are right along with them. Ed Wallace of Bloomberg Businessweek writes that speculators and the Federal Reserve are causing it. We’ll ask him why.

And did you know that one Kentucky Derby winner was disqualified? Dancer’s Image, back in 1968. It’s a complicated story but author Milton Toby joins us to tell us about it. He’s the author of “Dancer’s Image: The Forgotten Story of the 1968 Kentucky Derby.”

Plus Rick Howlett updates us on the Indiana primary results. That and more… right now at 1pm.
