Reporter's Roundtable

President Bush makes a state visit to London this week, but not everyone rolls out the red carpet. Republicans try to pass their version of a Medicare prescription drug benefit, while Democrats are stung over a major endorsement of the G.O.P.-backed bill. And superstar Michael Jackson's just-released CD is upstaged by charges of child molestation. NPR's Tony Cox discusses these top stories of the week with columnist Rochelle Riley of The Detroit Free Press and Terry Neal, chief political correspondent of WashingtonPost.com.
