Arab world on fire this week. More protests again today in Egypt. More thousands in the streets, tear gas, police charges, and calls for longtime U.S. ally, strongman Hosni Mubarak, to be gone.

In Washington, the President called on Americans to dig down, invest, and "win the future." The next day, this year’s federal deficit was reported  heading for $1.5 trillion.

We’ve got a big report out on the Wall Street meltdown, and the Dow back at 12,000. Keith Olberman, out.  Rahm Emanuel, hanging in. And the 25th anniversary of the Challenger disaster.
