    Moyers & Company [#201H] Paul Krugman On Why Jobs Come First * Our current obsession with slashing the deficit is getting in the way of real work that needs to be done to preserve both our economy and our democracy. It's all about jobs, says Paul Krugman, who joins Bill Moyers this week. The Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist explains why our top priority should be getting America back to work - if only Congress and the President would stop throwing distractions in the way. Krugman's latest book, End This Depression Now!, is a warning of the fiscal perils ahead and a prescription to safely avoid them.
    * Later on the show, Bill explains how last week's fiscal cliff deal gave tens of billions in tax breaks to Wall Street and corporations - what even The Wall Street Journal calls a "crony capitalist blowout."

    Mark Russell's America For three decades, humorist Mark Russell shared his insights on politics and society with public television audiences nationwide. A master of pointed one-liners and sharp-witted piano parodies, Russell remained an equal-opportunity quipster, lampooning events and newsmakers from all political persuasions. This newly produced retrospective pays tribute to his talent and legacy of laughter. It features clips from some of Russell's more than 100 public television specials (1975-2004). Presidential campaigns, congressional antics and defining moments from the Iran-Contra affair, the first Gulf War and the Monica Lewinski scandal provide ample comedic fodder for his poetic satire. Russell, in a present-day interview, provides context for his most memorable moments and offers humorous reminisces. duration 56:16   STEREO TVG

At the scene, Banks trawls through the wreckage of the boat, and is informed that an unoccupied second boat, belonging to British Waterways, was moored alongside Whittaker's boat at the time of the fire, and that it subsequently sank when the fire spread on to it. The investigation soon leads to Jake McMahon, a local artist known to have connections with Whittaker.

Banks manages to prove him otherwise, but he denies any involvement in art forgery. The post mortem on Whittaker discovers that he had been drugged prior to the time of the fire, meaning that he had no chance of escape once the fire had started. Annie enlists the help of art expert Mark Keane, in an attempt to discover if Whittaker could have gotten away with passing the Turner off as a real painting.
