This week on KCRW’s “Left, Right and Center”: The House votes down the farm bill and looks longingly toward immigration legislation, but will that “border surge” measure be more successful? Has Congress lost sight of Good Samaritan laws? Plus, anxiety over a Federal Reserve pullback.

President Obama travels to Europe and joins other G-8 leaders in isolating Russia’s Vladimir Putin for his position on Syria.

Also on this week’s show, the panelists discuss the deaths of two stars — journalist Michael Hastings and actor James Gandolfini. And finally, a rant in favor of saving “Chain Reaction,” the anti-nuclear weapons sculpture by the late Paul Conrad.

Scheer is joined by host Matt Miller and Washington Free Beacon Editor-in-Chief Matthew Continetti, who gives the perspective from the right.
