I thought I'd subsidize Amtrak today and took the train to Washington -- my second trip here in two days, where tonight we're hosting an important special on race that we are enormously proud of. It starts at 9p Eastern on MSNBC and live on the web -- it features the documentary "Meeting David Wilson," and then our live discussion with a fascinating group of guests we've assembled for tonight's broadcast from Howard University. Please let us know what you think.
I will admit: today's economic news is a punch in the gut on several fronts. That will dominate the news tonight. We'll also have our Making a Difference segment, and Ann Curry has gone and outdone herself tonight: a worldwide exclusive television interview with the Dalai Lama. Not your usual night around here -- let us know what you think of all of it.
We'll see you tonight from our Washington Bureau. Have a wonderful weekend and please come back on Monday night.
