An amazing breakthrough in cancer research...that story tonight on The CBS EVENING NEWS WITH KATIE COURIC


"I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances. "
-Martha Washington

The phrase "sleep tight" originated when mattresses were set upon ropes woven through the bed frame. To remedy sagging ropes, one would use a bed key to tighten the rope.


Here’s an early look at what we are working on for tonight’s broadcast from Anchor and Managing Editor, Katie Couric:

Hi everyone,

The celebration’s over, and now it’s time to focus on a new transition. Two days after his historic victory, President-elect Barack Obama isn’t wasting any time as he begins to form his administration. Today, Illinois Congressmen and former Clinton White House staffer Rahm Emanuel accepted the post of chief of staff. Chief White House correspondent Jim Axelrod traces Obama's steps in forming a cabinet and Wyatt Andrews will take a look back at how presidents of the past have made the transition.

Meanwhile, what does the future hold for Republicans, after losing the Presidential election - and losing more House and Senate seats? Jeff Greenfield looks into his crystal ball to see the future of the Grand Old Party.

There's more grim news about the economy today. Retail chains posted their worst October sales results since the data was first tracked in 1969, and long-term jobless claims reached a 25-year high. Sandra Hughes reports on what this could mean for the upcoming holiday season.

Next: It could be an amazing breakthrough in cancer research. Doctors have decoded the entire genome of a person who died of the disease and located mutations that might have caused it. This is a markedly different way to study cancer, and as Dr. Jon LaPook reports, it could lead to innovative new treatments.

No city has been hit harder by the troubled economy than Elkhart, Indiana. Unemployment there has nearly doubled in the past year, and the hard times are trickling down to many different businesses. Tonight, Seth Doane shows us how one restaurant with a dozen workers…needs a miracle just to stay open.

Finally tonight: It would be quite an understatement to say that the Obama family is about to experience a major change. I’ll show you what Michelle, Malia and Sasha can expect when they begin their new life in the White House.

See you later! Katie

Join Dave tonight with Actor Ben Stiller and Kid Scientists… Plus musical guest Q-Tip!


Julie Chen, Maggie Rodriguez and Harry Smith will anchor the EARLY SHOW from New York. Russ Mitchell anchors from Greece! Dave Price will bring us the weather.

Along with the top news, we are currently working on the following stories:

AUTO SALES - Struggling General Motors and Ford are likely to announce billions of dollars in third-quarter losses Friday as the ailing domestic auto industry continues to seek financial aid from Washington. We’ll find out what analysts are expecting and if the auto industry should be expecting more job cuts.

OBAMA’S PRESS CONFERENCE FRIDAY - On Friday, Barack Obama is expected to hold a press conference at approx. 2:30 in the afternoon. We will talk to political analysts and to one of Barack’s campaign managers about what he will be speaking about.

ACROPOLIS RESTORATION - Decades of pollution from cars and industry wreaked upon on the Greek capital have caused a dense, black coating encrusting the marble of the temples of the Acropolis. For years Greek experts have been searching for a method to uncover what’s hidden beneath the unsightly coating and restore the treasured monument to its former glory. Finally, thanks to an innovative dual-laser system, the temples will get a chance to once again look as they should, with the vibrant colours of painting and fine ornamentation from the 5th century BC exposed once more. Russ visited the Acropolis and will bring us the latest on its restoration!

ACTOR PAUL RUDD ON HIS NEW COMEDY - From "Clueless" and "Friends" to "Anchorman" and "Knocked Up," Paul Rudd has costarred in some of the most iconic comedies of the last 15 year. Friday, he'll be back in theaters with "Role Models, and he’ll join us in the studio to chat about it!

RUSS LEARNS TO DANCE - Greece is one of the few countries in the world where folk dances are as alive today as they were in ancient times. The Greeks danced at religious festivals, ceremonies; they danced to ensure fertility; to prepare for war and to celebrate victories; they danced at weddings; to overcome depression and to cure physical illness. Almost every dance has a story to tell. While in Greece, Russ will learn a little about Greek dancing as well! He’ll take a dancing lesson live on the show!

FIRST LADY FASHION - Michelle Obama is not a woman who is going to play it safe -- or stick to the status quo -- when it comes to style. She's already making daring choices, most notably the fashion-forward Narciso Rodriguez dress she wore Tuesday night at Grant Park. We are not likely to see the new first lady in tailored suits or boxy silhouettes typical of former First Ladies. She will bring a new style sensibility to the White House that we haven't experienced since Nancy Reagan’s use of the color red and asymmetrical necklines.
