On this edition of Independent Sources, we look at the second largest oil spill in U.S. history that very few people know about. We spotlight the bitter battle between proponents of a proposed soda tax and those who think it unfairly targets minority communities. Gay immigrants speak out on how one organization has helped them assimilate in the United States. Then, why the orthodox Jewish community is upset about the appointment of a female Rabba.
