Pandora went public, and is doing quite well. Rising food and gas prices in China are making millions of Chinese unhappy. And for the last part of our series on the drug wars in Mexico, we heard about how illegal drug use in the U.S. plays a factor in drug trafficking. Here are the songs we played:
