With the arrest of a suspect in the Boston bombing, there are now a host of legal questions emerging. Should he have been immediately read his Miranda rights? Should he be labelled an "enemy combatant"? What kind of trial will Dzhokhar Tsarnaev get? Legal journalist Andrew Cohen, contributor to The Atlantic, legal analyst for 60 Minutes, and fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice, provides context.
Voters in 38 states across the country also cast their votes yesterday on a total of 176 ballot measures. Among the initiatives that passed: Maine and Maryland became the first states to approve same sex marriage by popular vote and Colorado and Washington legalized marijuana for recreational use. Andrew Cohen is a contributing editor for The Atlantic and legal analyst for CBS' Sixty Minutes.

Andrew Cohen, a contributing editor for The Atlantic, and a legal analyst for 60 Minutes has more on the down-the-ballot measures that could change the country.
