An Uncertain Charlotte

For years Bank of America and Wachovia Bank were the financial and cultural pillars of Charlotte, North Carolina. But now that Wachovia has succumbed to the credit crisis and has been taken over by San Francisco-based Wells Fargo, Charlotte residents are wondering what is to become of their city known as the Queen of the South. We speak with Richard Thurmond, editor of Charlotte Magazine.

Tim and Tom

Tim Reid and Tom Dreesen formed the black and white comedy team "Tim and Tom" in 1969. They broke up after only a few years and became much bigger stars individually than they were as a duo. But in their time as a team they used comedy to confront the racial divide that was tearing the country apart at the time. They tell the story in their new book, "Tim and Tom: An American Comedy in Black and White," written with Ron Rapoport.

This program aired on October 14, 2008.
