That's who's on the show today! The Democrat is Congressman Alan Grayson, who'll give us the latest on the fight against Fast Track & the TPP; the Republican is former Congressman John LeBoutillier (who's the most sensible Republican I've heard in a long time!). And the rock star is Ryan Adams for our Flashback Friday segment today, in the 2001 World Premiere Broadcast of his band Whiskeytown's final album, "Pneumonia".  

We're seeing too many good things end, and too many bad things linger. Today Nicole bids farewell to David Letterman's late night show after already losing Colbert and Jon Stewart's departure is imminent. But the Patriot Act seems to live on forever. And the Senate votes on moving Fast Track forward. Marcy Wheeler & Digby guest.

In hour two, things turn more serious as Antonia Juhasz returns, this time to talk about her expedition to the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico at the site of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. And she'll explain what the state of Florida actually gets right!
