Topics and Guests for August 24

Watch "The Big Story" weekdays at 5 p.m. ET

A Virginia delegate calls on the governor to follow in Arizona and New Mexico's footsteps and declare a state of emergency. But Virginia doesn't share a border with Mexico. So what's the reason for the request? Delegate Jeffrey Frederick gives us the lowdown.

Then, Sen. Diane Feinstein (search), D-Calif., is first up to present the Democrats' case on Judge John Roberts' Supreme Court nomination. While a Senate showdown is unlikely, could this be an indication of what's to come from the Democrats? We'll get a fair and balanced debate from Republican attorney Chris Horner and Democratic strategist Bob Beckel.

And, a New Hampshire doctor is the focus of an investigation after telling a patient she was obese and needs to lose weight. She found the comments hurtful and filed a complaint against the doctor. Could he face disciplinary action? We'll get the legal lowdown from Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst.

Plus, as gas prices continue to soar, tempers are flying high right with them. Some people are taking their anger out on the people who operate the pumps, driving off without paying for their gas. So what can gas station owners do to stop these fuming consumers? We'll get reaction from Jeff Lenard, director of communications for the National Association of Convenience Stores.

Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
