    LAURA'S LAW - San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee announces plans to implement a version of "Laura's Law," a California measure which allows for court-ordered treatment of potentially dangerous mentally ill patients. The law is named for Laura Wilcox, a Nevada County woman who was murdered by a schizophrenic man with a history of violence. Lawmakers around the country are calling for such measures in the wake of recent mass shootings. But as Spencer Michels of PBS NewsHour reports, implementation of Laura's Law remains a challenge.
    SUPER BOWL - Mark Purdy, sports columnist for the San Jose Mercury News, reports from New Orleans, where the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens are warming up for the Super Bowl. It's the sixth time the 49ers are playing in the NFL championship, but the first time that both they and the opposing team will be coached by brothers Jim and John Harbaugh. With construction on a new stadium underway, steadily rising ticket prices, and a potential sixth trophy in the winning, it's an exciting time for the Bay Area team.

    Moyers & Company [#204H] Are Drones Destroying Our Democracy? * In the fight against terrorism, the American military's escalating drone program has become the face of our foreign policy in Pakistan, Yemen and parts of Africa.

This week, Bill explores the moral and legal implications of using drones to target our enemies, both foreign and American. His guests include: Vicki Divoll, a former general counsel to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and former deputy legal adviser to the C.I.A.'s Counterterrorism Center; and Vincent Warren, Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights. < br />* Also on the show, Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi on the continuing lack of accountability for America's big bankers. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE
