We have been in one endless meeting since 2:30 this afternoon -- a discussion of how we should handle several of the stories that will air up high in our broadcast tonight. In no particular order, we will cover the Colorado story, and various news out of Washington at the top of the broadcast. We're still working out a number of the pieces. We're also keeping an eye on the Western fires.
Tonight we will air the first installment of my interview in North Carolina yesterday with Elizabeth Edwards. We will air a longer segment tomorrow morning on "Today" (right now scheduled in the 8 a.m hour). She has written a very personal, very brave and emotional book which I note has risen to No. 2 on Amazon. I hope you can watch both segments.
In addition, our "Fleecing of America" series continues tonight...and we have an interesting look at the science of speech and what we're learning about childhood development.
So it's into the studio for a taping, then to the newsroom. We'll have everything in order by the time you come to us. That's a promise. I hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
