    mcbooker2.jpgTonight's edition of "Newark Today," our monthly call-in show with Mayor Cory Booker, will feature a discussion with Police Director Garry McCarthy. City officials weren't exactly celebrating the fact that murders were down in 2007 (98, as compared to 106 last year) but they made the point that crime, across the board, was down in the city, too. Tonight, we'll talk about the specifics of crime data and what the city thinks made the numbers fall last year. We'll also talk about upcoming programs the city says will further reduce crime in 2008.

    The program airs at 8 p.m. on 88.3 fm and wbgo.org. We're taking your calls (1.800.499.9246) and emails (newarktoday@wbgo.org). try to join us. Otherwise, you can hear the program, on demand, at wbgo.org/newarktoday. - David Cruz
