Mourning the Pope: The faithful continue to pay their respects waiting for hours in a line that is estimated to be two miles long! The population of Rome may double as people come for the funeral of Pope John Paul II (search). We’ll have a report from Rome.

Damaging Testimony? Plus, can Michael Jackson's defense (search) recover from yesterday's potentially devastating testimony? We’ll tell you what happened as FOX's Trace Gallagher reports live from the courthouse in Santa Maria.
