I was stuck on an airport tarmac today for three hours so at first I missed the news about signs of recovery for the economy. It shrank in the second quarter, but less than expected. This seems to a lot of people including the President like it may be the beginning of the end of the recession. But if this is recovery, with so many people still out of work and foreclosing on their mortgages, it makes you worry. We will try to sort some of it out tonight with CNBC's Steve Leisman. Also, with the administration under fire for the stimulus failing to post the results they promised, one of the rebate programs that WAS working - the so called cash for clunkers - ran out of money. Looks like Congress will act quickly enough to authorize enough money for the program for you to get your cash back over the weekend.
If you haven't heard Senator Chris Dodd has prostate cancer. He shared the news with Senator Kennedy yesterday and Kennedy apparently said, "If I can beat mine, you can beat yours."
Also tonight, Norah O'Donnell with a great story about how horses can make a difference in the life of a solider returning from war.
Brian is away today. I hope you will tune in tonight. And have a great weekend.
