- Reporter's Notebook: Dolphins Recognize Themselves in Mirror - Researchers call the ability to recognize oneself in a mirror an "exceedingly rare capacity in the animal kingdom."

FROM THIS EPISODE
Youthful looking and handsome, Japan's Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi is being hailed as a leader who can revitalize a country in decline even though he's a veteran of the same Liberal Democratic Party that's blamed for causing his country's problems. Is he a reformer or a representative of the failed old guard dressed up in new clothes? We explore Japan's decline, it's relationship with Asia and the US, and whether its trendy-looking prime minister can restore the nation's luster. We're joined by journalists, academics, authors, researchers, and international consultants.
