New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman joins us in the studio. He's just back from visiting Yemen, Syria and Turkey. We'll talk to the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist about his thoughts on the turmoil in Syria, U.S. jobs and NSA surveillance, among other topics.

Each year, charities such as Florida-based Kids Wish Network raise millions of dollars. But according to a joint investigation by The Center for Investigative Reporting, the Tampa Bay Times and CNN, Kids Wish Network gave less than three cents on the dollar to the cause. The investigation identifies the nation's 50 worst charities, all of which devoted less than 4 percent of donations to direct cash aid. We discuss the investigation, what should be done to crack down on bad charities, and how to make good decisions about where to send your charitable dollars.

He became the face of one of the defining Supreme Court cases of that period, Hirabayashi v. United States. Approaching the 70th anniversary of the case, we talk with Gordon's nephew Lane Hirabayashi about his uncle's life and legacy.
After the first day of the G-8 summit meeting in Northern Ireland, topics like tax evasion, transparency and a U.S.-European Union bilateral trade agreement seemed largely overshadowed by talks of the Syrian conflict. Russian President Vladimir Putin's dismissal of President Obama's call to support Syrian rebels has created a rift between Russia and the seven other members of the summit.
The Los Angeles Unified School District board votes Tuesday on whether to press the state for changes in the "Parent Trigger" law. Of the five times the law has been engaged in California, three were in the LAUSD, leading at least one board member to suggest tweaks to the way parent triggers work.
California courts have been hit hard by state budget cuts over the past five years. The new state budget restores some funding, but more than 50 courts have already closed -- and those still open are delivering slower service and charging higher fees. The cuts have hit particularly hard in far-flung communities such as Blythe, which sits on the Arizona border.
