The State Budget Crisis Task Force raised red flags this week about the financial futures of state governments. Task Force co-chair, former New York Lieutenant Governor Richard Ravitch, discusses the extent of these fiscal problems—and how New York and New Jersey compare to other states. Plus: London Times columnist Caitlin Moran talks about her new book How to Be a Woman; a look at portrayals of Mormons in America; and the Keeping Cool series continues with a conversation about the economics of air-conditioning.
