Bank of America has agreed to pay over $300 million dollars to settle allegations that its mortgage lending unit Countrywide Financial discriminated against black and Hispanic borrowers during the housing boom. A representative of the Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP) discusses whether the settlement actually settles the score for many affected lenders; a look at the Iraq war in a historical context with Richard Betts; a conversation about giving a book as a gift in the age of the e-reader with New York Times reporter Julie Bosman; and the cultural rivalry between the Giants and the Jets.
