Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.
Next, we remember director, playwright, author and screenwriter Nora Ephron. She died on Tuesday at the age of 71. Ephron wrote the scripts for movies such as When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle. Bob talked with Ephron in 2006 about her best-selling book of essays titled I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman.
Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Juliet Frerking. Children are told they can be anything when they grow up, and many take that to mean that they can be anything extraordinary. The Guinness Book of World Records fascinated Frerking when she was a child. But beyond the unusual accomplishments it listed, the book inspired Frerking to attempt the extraordinary in her own life – things she otherwise might have thought impossible.
