(CNN) – Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.
Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:
[3:47] "I know for a while I had to take food stamps and it was very painful to pull out that card and use it at the grocery store, extremely painful to do so. And I would trade in that card any day of the week for a real job."
[11:12] "The Mexican government is doing all it can to fix the drug trafficking problem. They catch them, they judge them, they put 'em in jail and then they escape."
[15:31]"Who wants to talk about the way people have sex, how they choose their partners, how many partners they have in the same week or month? It's a very uncomfortable subject."
