From our discussion this morning, a collection of brewing battles. Chief Justice Roberts v. the White House; President Obama v. the health insurance industry; Liz Cheney v. a host of prominent lawyers – liberal and conservative; and Toyota v. reporters, and anyone questioning its assertion that electrical troubles have nothing to do with all those runaway cars.
We’re also talking about a set of new educational standards put forward by the nation’s governors, new (and more consumer-friendly) credit-card rules laid out by a major bank, and a remarkable 911 call placed by a 7-year-old – a call that may have saved his life, and his parents’ as well.
We’ve learned of the deaths of two prominent Americans: a well-known young actor, and a legendary political activist who preached against the staggering costs of running for office. You may know that we’re talking about Corey Haim and Doris Haddock, the latter better known to us as “Granny D.”
All this, plus the latest on our Fosamax investigation and a special look at American evangelical groups spreading their word – and sowing controversy – in the heart of Africa.
