Week In Review With Dan Schorr

This week, Wall Street showed signs of life with four straight days of gains. President Obama signed the $410 billion omnibus spending bill, and overturned a ban on embryonic stem cell research. And money manager Bernard Madoff confessed to running what could possibly be the largest Ponzi scheme in U.S. history.

Host Scott Simon discusses the week in news with NPR Senior News Analyst Dan Schorr.

In the interview, Dan Schorr said, "When I was stringer for 'The New York Times' in Holland back in 1948, I found that the Dutch had been playing baseball even during the German occupation." The article was actually written for "The Christian Science Monitor" in 1949.
