GUESTS: Daniel Schorr NPR Senior News Analyst Richard Baker Senate Historian The second hour of Talk of the Nation is being pre-empted in order to provide live coverage of the memorial service and congressional tribute to Officer Jacob Chestnut and Detective John Gibson. The two policemen were killed in the line of duty during a shoot-out at the U.S. Capitol on Friday. The service is expected to run approximately 40 minutes but NPR will provide coverage for the full hour. Ray Suarez will anchor the broadcast, and NPR correspondents will be available to provide color and commentary.
