The Brian Lehrer Show is not live today, so we won't be taking any calls. As always, you can join the conversation online through our comments section (links below), on Facebook, or on Twitter through @BrianLehrer.

Journalist Diane Francis has a modest proposal: the U.S. and Canada should merge. She talks about what both countries could bring to the partnership. Plus: neuroscientist Sam Harris on lying; economist Emily Oster debunks pregnancy myths about what’s dangerous for a woman who is expecting; and a deep look at “mismatch diseases”; how to be a friend to a friend who is sick; and an urban monk talks about spirituality in the city.
