Over a month after the shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin, the small town of Sanford, Florida remains on edge. In this conversation we speak with Mayor Jeff Triplett about how his town of 54,000 has held together through a nationally publicized tragedy. We also turn to Farai Chideya, blogger at Farai.com, to discuss the current state of the media's national coverage of the narrative and characters playing out in this sensitive news story.
