The Pentagon and intelligence agencies assess the war effort in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Also on the show: Listeners respond in droves to yesterday's story on mixed-race Americans and self-identification; Congress moves slowly towards passing the tax-cut/unemployment compromise bill, 'don't ask, don't tell' repeal and a START agreement; informing the public about worst case scenario planning without undue worry; the personal stories and possible causes behind November's dropping foreclosure numbers.; our week-long series on American Values continues as we discuss religion's place in America; Detroit ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and family members indicted for corruption; the neuroscience behind our love of magic tricks.
