Also, the great film collective, Third World Newsreel, is taking over the Brooklyn Academy of Music for three days - we'll feature some of the movies showing in the Call for Change festival. And a look at the late great August Wilson, one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century, who just passed away on Sunday.

And President Bush has nominated a virtual unknown to the Supreme Court. Who is Harriet Miers? And what will the court look like as Roberts takes the bench? And finally, the First Peak Oil Conference is coming up this week, and just in time - some experts say the petroleum party is almost over.
