Several weeks ago, four men were arrested for stealing body parts from Brooklyn funeral homes and selling them for transplants. The body of late PBS host Alistair Cooke was involved. His daughter, Susan Cooke Kittredge, wrote about what it was like to receive news of the fate of her father's body in an op-ed that appeared in Sunday's New York Times.

Guest:

Susan Cooke Kittredge, minister of the Old Meeting House in East Monteplier, Vt.; daughter of late PBS host Alistair Cooke
