The Language of 'The Gin Game'

NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright D.L. Coburn, who wrote the original Broadway version -- as well as the teleplay -- of The Gin Game. Mr. Coburn talks about the decision by PBS to offer affiliate stations a version of the production without swear words. PBS didn't inform him of the decision until after he was called and asked about it by NPR.
