Back from the mother country

My thanks to Lester Holt and David Gregory for holding down the fort and affording me some time last week to travel with my family to Ireland, where we had a wonderful time together. Sadly, the oil spill has only gotten worse in the few days I've been gone. We'll be back down in the Gulf before too long, and until then we have the best team in the business on the ground and out on the water. I hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
