FROM Deborah Madison
The Perils and Pleasures of Eating Thanksgiving is America's day to eat and talk about food: why we eat what we eat, why we eat so many bad things and how we can learn to enjoy more of the good things. Food preparation is not rocket science, it's brain science. We learn how food companies mix salt, sugar and fat to make combinations you just can't resist. We also hear how government subsidies favor processed food and how you can get in on what constitutes a promising food revolution. Finally, we talk about the joy of eating and how food shapes our memories of people and places, of childhood and family.
Healthcare debate now shifts to the Senate Both parties are celebrating yesterday's House bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. House Republicans are cheering because they were able to pass it. Democrats are happy because they think it's so bad. We look at the details… and the politics.
Will the GOP weather the storm with Trump or jump ship? Breitbart news claims that the GOP "establishment" has it's knives out" for President Trump, but Republicans in Congress are mostly supportive… at least in public. We look at whether that's likely to last.
Trump, the GOP and the rule of law Conservatives — and some Republicans — are criticizing the President for "the mess he made" in firing FBI Director James Comey. We hear about a potential successor, the possibility of "obstruction of justice" and the constitutional separation of powers.
