N.Y. Summit

NPR's Eric Westervelt reports that security will be one of the main concerns at the 32nd annual World Economic Forum starting in New York today. The forum is usually held in Davos, Switzerland. Organizers say they're showing support for the city after the Sept. 11 terror attacks; protesters say Davos organizers are cynically hoping respect for the dead will keep protests from the streets.
