Before we run off for the weekend, please watch (if you haven't already) Chuck Todd's package of reporting this morning on Today. Its important stuff, and its a story we'll be re-visiting this weekend. There's also this story, which started to get some traction on the web this past week.
And so with that, we invite you to watch our broadcast tonight. We have a great Making a Difference report -- big Olympics news -- and a loss in our own family here at NBC News. We hope you can join us, and we hope you have a good weekend. Don't forget to watch Lester this weekend. We'll see you again on Monday night.
