Time is quickly running out for the super committee to forge

some kind of grand compromise on the budget and deficit. At 2:30 today Dems and

Warner and Congressman Mike Simpson about the "go big" efforts.

The inspector general has launched an investigation into the

"Fast and Furious" scandal.. We'll talk to Congressman Darrell Issa about that.

Police swooped in and cleared Zuccotti Park and arrested 70

New York Times is reporting 10 more people have come forward

saying they were subjected to inappropriate touching from fmr Penn State

assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. He's already accused of molesting 8 boys. In an

"horseplay" with boys. We may add a legal panel in the 12 on this story.
