Here in the U.S., Occupy Wall Street protesters are preparing for the cold winter ahead. Harrisburg, Penn., is facing default. Charitable donations may lose their tax deductions. The GOP presidential candidates are set to have another debate — another chance for them to squabble and gain some extra exposure. And here are the songs we played:
