A lot of stories today considering how other countries are affecting the U.S.: Europe and the U.S. have been urging China to allow its currency to rise, but a Chinese premier says not to blame the yuan for cheap import prices. Commentator David Frum recommends looking back at Germany’s reunification to reflect on how America should move forward. Annie Murphy reports on Brazil’s presidential election coming up on Sunday. Austerity cuts are coming to a few European countries, and protesters are fighting hard, but can they make a difference? Also, more developments with AIG and BP, and Virginia looks to privatize liquor. And here are the songs that we played:
