It's an old travelers joke: Even on the way to Heaven you'll have to change planes at O'Hare. (There's also an Atlanta Hartsfield version of the joke). Let's hope not. Chicago's busy airport is for a second day in a row the root of some major flight delays keeping holiday travelers from reaching their destinations on time. Fog and low clouds are slowing operations at O'Hare , and since it is a major hub to two of the nation's two biggest airlines, problems there are having a ripple affect across the system today. We'll be reporting on the holiday weekend travel picture on Nighty News this evening.
Kerry Sanders reports on the joy and anger surrounding the release of a young American suddenly released from a Central American prison where he was serving a 30-year sentence for murder.
Those and other stories including a look at the debate over what rights, if any, should be afforded to college students whose immigrant families are living in this country illegally.
As always, a big thanks for checking in. We'll look for you tonight on NBC Nightly News.
