This week, more sobering economic news from the Labor Department. The country's unemployment rate jumped to 8.1 percent last month, the highest since 1983. Meanwhile, President Obama held a day-long summit on health care at the White House. And Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is making the rounds with visits to the Middle East, Brussels and Geneva.

Host Scott Simon discusses the week in news with NPR's Senior News Analyst Daniel Schorr.
