    Washington Week with Gwen Ifill [#5348H] It has been a whirlwind week for President Obama: a surprise trip to Afghanistan just prior to announcing troop reductions in that conflict; a major speech on his vision for the military and the US role in the world; new calls to replace Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki amid allegation of scandal and misconduct in VA hospitals around the country. In some respects, the week has been a microcosm of the types of situations that have defined and sometimes plagued Mr. Obama's second term. With upcoming mid-term elections - which are rarely hospitable to incumbent presidents - and a flagging legislative agenda ahead, how will he tackle the remaining 2-1/2 years of his presidency?
    This week, we take a look at the president's standing 18-months into his second term - his priorities, his stumbles and the potential obstacles ahead, both politically and internationally. Joining Gwen around the table to discuss Obama at a Crossroads: Peter Baker, New York Times; Christi Parsons, Tribune Newspapers; Michael Crowley, Time Magazine; and Carrie Budoff Brown, Politico.

    KQED NEWSROOM [#129H] Legislating Public Safety, Congresswoman Jackie Speier and Maya Angelou Tribute
    Legislating Public Safety
    As the community of Isla Vista mourns, the deadly rampage last weekend has re-invigorated calls for legislative action. In Washington today, Rep. Mike Thompson (D-St Helena) introduced federal legislation to target mental health services and reduce gun violence. Earlier in the week, California Assembly members Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) and Das Williams (D-Santa Barbara) proposed bills to further restrict access to guns for people deemed mentally ill. Senate leader Darrell Steinberg announced a separate set of proposals to address mental health care in the criminal justice system and to expand training for law enforcement officers. Can legislation prevent would-be-killers before they go on rampages?

    • Frank Zimring, UC Berkeley School of Law
    • Josh Richman, Bay Area News Group

    In The Footsteps of Marco Polo Some people dream big dreams. Only a few bold adventurers live them. Two such adventurers are Denis Belliveau and Francis O'Donnell, who took a wild idea - to retrace Marco Polo's entire 25,000 mile land-and-sea route from Venice to China and back - and spent 2 incredible years of their lives trying to turn it into reality. "We made a pact," says O'Donnell, "that, under any conditions, no matter what, we were only coming back to the US 1 of 2 ways - either dead or successful."
    This program chronicles the extraordinary journey of two ordinary guys - Denis, at the time a wedding photographer, Francis an artist and US Marine veteran - as they venture on foot, on horseback, on camelback, in jeeps and trucks and boats and trains, through Venice, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, several former republics of the Soviet Union, China, Indonesia and India. Equal parts travelogue, adventure story, history trek and buddy movie, it chronicles their highs and lows as they retrace Polo's path, trying to see what he must have seen, feel what he must have felt.
    In a feat of undaunted courage, in the spirit of history's great adventurers, Belliveau and O'Donnell make their way across the world's largest land mass and back, securing - or, when necessary, forging - visas, surviving extreme temperatures, and talking their way out of jams brought on by Tajik soldiers, Chinese security officers, and an assortment of other bureaucrats, border guards and armed warriors. Interweaving Belliveau and O'Donnell's own tales with the original 13th century descriptions of Marco Polo, brimming with adventure, history, art, and no small amount of humor, this program is a unique cinematic experience.
