    Washington Week [#5651] Every once in a while, one moment makes Washington pause. Partisanship melts away, if only for that brief moment. This week it was a charity baseball game, an annual tradition that pits Republicans and Democrats against each other for a good-natured competition and America's favorite pastime.
    * Everything changed early Wednesday morning when a gunman opened fire on the Republican team practicing on a suburban field. Rep. Steve Scalise, the number three Republican in the House of Representatives, was critically injured along with four others.
    * As the game goes on and Washington returns to its usual squabbles, the investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election has expanded to include President Trump.
    * Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly looking into whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice in the Russia case after firing FBI Director James Comey. Just one day after the shooting when Trump praised all the public servants working in government, the president took to Twitter to bemoan the "very bad and conflicted people" investigating him. On Wednesday the Senate voted 97-2 to restrict the president's ability to roll back sanctions to punish Russia for interfering in the 2016 election.
    What does this unusual week tell us about civility, credibility and trust in Washington? Robert Costa will discuss with: Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics, Jeff Zeleny of CNN, Erica Werner of the Associated Press, Geoff Bennett of NPR, and Adam Entous of The Washington Post.

    Forever Chinatown: A Local USA/Truly CA Special This documentary presents the story of unknown, self-taught 81-year-old artist Frank Wong who has spent the past four decades recreating his fading memories by building romantic, extraordinarily detailed miniature models of the San Francisco Chinatown rooms of his youth. It takes the journey of one individual and maps it to a rapidly changing urban neighborhood from 1940s to present day.
    A meditation on memory, community, and preserving one's own legacy, Frank's three-dimensional miniature dioramas become rare portals into a historic neighborhood and a window to the artist's filtered, romanticized memories and emotional struggles. In his compromise with immortality, Frank announces plans to cremate his exquisite works with him upon his death in order to 'live inside them forever' in his afterlife.

    People's Hospital, The A hospital is not usually thought of as a place of warmth and community. The People's Hospital, a documentary directed by Jim Choi and Chihiro Wimbush and produced by CAAM, is an immersion into a space in San Francisco's Chinatown that is vital to the well-being of the community. Located in North America's oldest Chinatown, the hospital serves the most vulnerable - the poor, immigrant, monolingual, and elderly. Chinese Hospital began as a medical dispensary in 1899 during the height of the Chinese Exclusion Act when other hospitals refused to accept Chinese patients. It was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire, and reopened in 1925 due to community support. From the food to the languages that medical professionals speak, the idea of a hospital is transformed from a sterile environment to a place that some call home. The film uses enlightening interviews with former mayor Willie Brown, the last interviews with the late community activist Rose Pak, and medical professionals who work in the hospital, some of whom were born there. The film documents the unveiling of the new medical center in 2016 - the last standing independent hospital in San Francisco - to much excitement. The film shows that the heart and soul of a community can be in the unlikeliest of places. duration 27:18   STEREO

    Suze Orman's Financial Solutions for You We all have financial issues and problems. Suze Orman's latest special sharply focuses on her helping individual viewers "find financial solutions for you." As always, Suze's advice is based not just on numbers, but on a critical understanding of ourselves and our emotional needs. The special's central theme is that our financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of "the goal of money." As Suze perceptively defines it: "The goal of money is to make you feel secure." Our financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal. In addition, Suze stresses the importance of making financial decisions that you feel comfortable with. Financial problems are caused when you do things with money that do not seem "right" to you, despite pressures and advice from others. duration 1:57:06   STEREO TVG

    PBS NewsHour Weekend [#701H] Obamacare Choices Whittle The Affordable Care Act signed by President Obama and which took effect in 2013 mandated all Americans obtain health insurance, and for those that didn't have it, the ACA created a federal and state marketplaces, also known as exchanges. The system was designed to facilitate coverage for the self-employed, the uninsured and anyone without access to employer-provided insurance, Medicaid or Medicare. But after just a few years, big insurance companies like Aetna, Anthem, and United Health have pulled out of the marketplace. This year, only 57 percent of enrollees in state exchanges have a choice of three or more insurers, down from 85 percent last year, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. Enrollees in another five states have only one choice: take it or leave it. NewsHour Weekend's Christopher Booker went to one of those states, Alabama, to find out the impact. duration 26:46   STEREO TVRE
