Businesses in Japan are being greatly affected by the aftermath of the quake and tsunami — carmakers like Toyota have kept their plants closed; GE is coming under attack for design of the stricken Fukushima reactors. Commentator David Frum gave his take on nuclear power.

In the Middle East, Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi says his forces are beating back rebel forces. Will foreign nations do business with him again? And Gregory Warner reported on the smoking and health patterns in Russia. Here are the song s we played:
