Hosted by

If you're frustrated by the limited number of issues in this year's presidential campaign, you are not alone.

Also, the Syrian army agrees to temporary truce, though no one knows how long it will last. On Reporter's Notebook, 3-D printers produce industrial objects. We hear about plans for making it possible to download a gun.
