  • Fiscal Cliff Cuts Could Hit Health Care Providers
    The budget cuts set to take effect Jan. 1 were designed to be so draconian that they would force a long-term deal to trim the federal deficit. Scott Horsley talks to Robert Siegel about what budget cuts are likely to remain or be added in a deal to avert the fiscal cliff.
  • Smuggling In Southern California Up 30 Percent
    A couple of high-profile incidents over the last week have increased attention on smuggling operations off the coast of California. Mexican cartels bring drugs and illegal immigrants up the coast of California in small fishing boats. Stiff border defenses are pushing the boats farther north.
  • E.U. Votes To Have A Single Regulator For Its Banks
    European officials have taken a big step toward the banking union many analysts believe is necessary to vanquish the debt crisis.

  • HSBC Critic: Too Big To Indict May Mean Too Big To Exist

  • A 'Hobbit,' Off On His Unhurried Journey
    Peter Jackson takes his audience back to Middle-earth in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, set in a time before the Lord of the Rings films. NPR's Bob Mondello says that where the Rings films struggled with what to omit, The Hobbit labors to justify its three-hour running time.
  • A Sweet Bread, A Wash Basin And A Shot Of Whiskey
