Episode Description 
Will Apple shares really hit $1,000? New York bureau chief Heidi Moore digs a little deeper. Car companies are roaring back, but something's not exactly adding up. Waiters and waitresses at a Manhattan banquet hall have been rewarded $8.5 million in a lawsuit over gratuity tips they say they didn't receive. This week, a hearing in North Carolina will determine if a man deported to Mexico can be reunited with his kids, or if they should stay in foster care. And Freakonomics Radio's Stephen Dubner discusses the hidden side of burglar alarms.
