FROM THIS EPISODE

President Obama says the White House is stepping up its investigation into the widening scandal over VA hospital wait lists. Plus, as the 9/11 museum opens, some family members of victims say the tribute is too crass. We talk to author Sara Eckel, who is fighting for women’s right to be single, despite judgment by society. And we celebrate the 70th birthday of one of America’s oldest firefighters: Smokey Bear.
