Google is set to launch the Chromebook. Music sales are up for the first time in a long time. The economy, though, continues to struggle, as high gas prices finally makes an impact. Bipartisan legislation was introduced today to replace Fannie and Freddie. The Center for Global Development's Nancy Birdsall talked about why the U.S. needs to continue to give aid to Pakistan. And we heard about the importance and complicated nature of prescription drug names. Here are the songs we played:
