"The focus of policymakers is reducing
the spillover into the real economy


from the turbulence and disruptions in

because the central bank must weigh
any interest rate cut with inflation.

the tide of a looming recession.

wall street has been on a
rollercoaster ride because of Bear

collapse.. and fears the credit crises
is spreading. Bad bets on the subprime


mortgages brought the financial giant
to its knees.



(SOT William Silber, NYU Stern School

"Trust is crucial to financial markets.
Once that trust is gone, no matter how


much cash you have on your balance

JP Morgan Chase with backing by the Fed
came to Bear Stearns rescue.. and the


Fed has been working overtime rolling
out a variety of other measures to put


out the fires threatening the economy.



Most economists say the Fed's actions


won't stop a recession.. it will only


make it shorter and less painful.

You have drug dealers here--



Dick Heller is a security guard in the
District of Columbia. He carries a gun
all day on the job, but under DC law
cannot own a gun for self protection.
Heller is asking the Supreme Court to
strike down the law, and declare that


Americans have to right own guns,
especially at home.



Sot 131413


I can protect the other citizens who
are disarmed, but I cannot come home
and protect myself.



Narr (with gfx)


The Second Amendment says plainly "the
right to keep and bear arms shall not
be infringed," but it comes at the end
of a longer sentence giving states the
right to keep "a well regulated
militia." DC Mayor Adrian Fenty argues
that means there's no individual right
to bear arms--especially in high crime
urban areas.



Sot Mayor Adrian Fenty 024603


More handguns has only one result and
only one effect and that --it will
increase violence in the District of
Columbia.



Narr


DC police officers --who make frequent
gun arrests--mostly support the handgun
ban, on the theory that reducing guns


reduces violence.



Sot Inspector Brian Bray 002703


if there are less guns out there, it
will be harder for criminals that use
guns to get ahold of them to commit
their crimes.



Narr


Dick Heller believes the ban has only
disarmed the good guys.



Sot Heller 133208


Q. Do you think the handgun ban has
reduced crime? A. Heavens no. The
reward for the handgun ban is vying
with Detroit to be the murder capital
of America.

hopes, this speech will distance him


from comments made in years past by his
long-time pastor -- the Reverend


Jeremiah Wright.

TO


BE A BLACK MAN LIVING IN A COUNTRY AND
A CULTURE THAT IS CONTROLLED BY RICH


WHITE PEOPLE!"


(END VIDEO FROM: YouTube)



(SOT: BARACK OBAMA / D - PRESIDENTIAL


CANDIDATE) -


They expressed a profoundly distorted
view of this country - a view that sees


white racism as endemic, and that
elevates what is wrong with America
above


all that we know is right with


America;



Wright has also suggested that U.S.
"terrorism" helped bring on the


Nine-Eleven attacks.



Obama has labeled remarks like those --
as stupid.



(SOT: BARACK OBAMA / D - PRESIDENTIAL


CANDIDATE) -


Reverend Wright's comments were not
only wrong but divisive, divisive at a


time when we need unity; racially
charged at a time when we need to come


together to solve a set of monumental
problems.



(STANDUP BRIDGE: Susan Roberts / CBS
NEWS / THE WHITE HOUSE) - "critics have


called Wright's comments anti-american
-- and anti-white. Political analysts


say -- there's a lot riding on today's
speech... And how Obama handles this


issue in the days ahead."



(SOT: JOE TRIPPI / CBS NEWS POLITICAL


CONSULTANT) - "IT'S EITHER GOING TO BE


THE CRISIS OF HIS CANDIDACY OR A
SHINING MOMENT FOR HIM."



Wright was Obama's pastor for almost
20-years...before he retired. He


officiated at Obama's wedding... And
baptized his two daughters.



SOT: OBAMA..As imperfect as he may be


he's been like family to me.



Obama is hoping that his words...and
not his former pastor's will take

<< Good afternoon, I'm meteorologist
Leo Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7
Forecast Center. High pressure
anchored over the Great Lakes is moving
east producing mild southwest winds.
This will mean another comfortable day
Tuesday with afternoon highs in the
upper 50s. Moisture will begin to
increase during the day. While it will
be dry Tuesday, clouds will thicken
during the afternoon and into Tuesday
night as a low pressure system prepares
to move north out of the Gulf of Mexico
and into the Great Lakes. By late
Tuesday night, a few of the clouds may
be full enough to produce some light
showers in the mountains. However, the
best chance of regional showers won't
arrive until lunchtime Wednesday. We


could even have some stronger storms
with gusty winds as the low pushes a
cold front through. Showers will taper
off by Wednesday evening. Behind the
front, a steep pressure rise will
produce gusty winds for everyone
Wednesday night. Right now, Thursday
though Sunday call for fair skies and
highs around 60. TUESDAY: Increasing
clouds. Comfortable. High: 57 TUESDAY
NIGHT: Mostly cloudy, a few showers.
