Having spent last evening and a good part of the day with my buddy Richard Engel (and in keeping with this week's theme of highlighting the work of others), allow me to remind everyone to buy Richard's superb new book. He's here in this country for a bit longer on book tour, and I highly recommend it.
In political circles, a recent column by Richard Cohen is receiving a lot of comment -- some of it having to do with Cohen's courage in writing it, in addition to his central point, which is central to the current campaign.
We have a number of important stories tonight -- climate, fires, the Court, Africa, the economy -- and more of our reporting from our last trip. We hope you can join us.
