Marketplace for Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Bluefin tuna carrying radiation from the Fukushima meltdown in Japan have been found off the coast of California, but health authorities say it's no threat to the U.S. food supply. Meanwhile, an advanced malware "flame" has hit the Middle East. In response to recent killings in Houla, several countries -- including the U.S. and Britain -- are kicking out Syrian diplomats. Law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf filed for bankruptcy, marking the largest law firm collapse in U.S. history. We take a look at what lawmaking is being done in Washington during this election year. And Kai Ryssdal talks to humorist Kevin Bleyer about his new book "Me The People" and about rewriting the constitution.
