Lovely Lawns, Problematic Palms, and Smithsonian Orphans

This morning’s ruling by a federal appeals court delivered a potentially crippling blow to the Affordable Care Act. Then another court ruled in a completely opposite direction in a similar case. We find out where that leaves Obamacare. Plus: Conventional wisdom says we only use 10% of our brains. That’s not true at all. Also, in light of the drought, we look at how Americans originally fell in love with the idea of green lawns. We also discuss L.A.’s palm trees, which -- despite their reputation -- don’t really belong here. And we look inside the Smithsonian’s orphan collections.
