    Washington Week [#5718H]
    Republicans rolled out their sweeping plan to lower the corporate tax rate and slash taxes for middle-income Americans. The proposal includes a number of changes including lowering inheritance taxes while preserving popular rules that protect retirement savings.
    Republicans hope to offset some of the lost revenue from lower tax rates by eliminating tax breaks in the code. President Trump is urging lawmakers to act quickly to pass the tax reform package so he can sign it into law by the end of the year.
    The first major moves in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election were also made this week.
    The indictment of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates made headlines, but it was the unexpected plea deal by former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos that proved to be more of a mystery. Efforts by the White House and conservative leaders to discredit the probe don't seem to be working. According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, more than twice as many Americans approve as disapprove of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation.
    We'll get analysis on the major stories of the week from:
    Nancy Cordes of CBS News
    Philip Rucker of The Washington Post
    Kelsey Snell of NPR
    Jeff Pegues of CBS News
    Jim Tankersley of The New York Times

    Emery Blagdon and His Healing Machine With pliers in hand, Nebraska artist Emery Blagdon fashioned pieces of wire into patterns and attached foil, beads, ribbons and an infinite array of everyday cast-off items. He hung the creations he called his "pretties" in his rural Nebraska shed, creating an environment he believed could generate natural energy from the earth and help people attain better health.
    The stories of Blagdon, his "Healing Machine" and the two men responsible for preserving this great American art are told in this film. Local pharmacist Dan Dryden befriended the man with unkempt hair, a long beard and overalls when Blagdon visited the store to buy supplies. When Dryden visited his farm, he was astonished by Blagdon's creations.
    When Blagdon died, his farmstead and the "Healing Machine" were up for auction. To keep his art from being separated or destroyed, Dryden and his friend Don Christensen purchased the "Healing Machine." His masterpiece is now on display at the John Michael Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and Emery Blagdon is known by art collectors and museum visitors as a man with boundless visionary creativity - an artist of great significance.

Then, it's off to nearby Axiote with Chef Xavier Perez Stone, who shows Rick how to make outrageously good coconut-shrimp ceviche.

    Mark Twain's Journey to Jerusalem: Dreamland MARK TWAIN'S JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM: DREAMLAND retraces Mark Twain's footsteps as a cub reporter on a bold adventure sailing around the Mediterranean and throughout Europe in 1867, with Jerusalem and the Holy Land as his ultimate destination. Narrated by Martin Sheen, the documentary reveals Twain's deep rooted and complex relationship with religion. Having regularly attended church services as a child with his devoutly Christian mother, and thoroughly educated on Christianity and the Bible, his childhood imaginings of the Holy Land are confronted with a vastly different reality; the monuments, cities, and landscapes aren't as grand as the Scriptures led him to believe. He also finds himself disillusioned by the poverty and squalor he witnesses beneath the "splendor" of European culture. The film chronicles Mark Twain's exploits on his landmark journey and establishes Twain as the voice of America - funny, sarcastic, and powerfully opinionated. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
