CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Hello everyone. This is Maggie Rodriguez filling in for Katie.


We’ll begin tonight with a developing story from India: Terrorist gunmen blitzed the city of Mumbai today, attacking luxury hotels, a crowded train station and a restaurant. Dozens of people were killed in the highly coordinated attack apparently targeting westerners. At last word, the terrorists were holding hostages. Mark Phillips will have the latest.


Here at home, for the first time in five years, fewer Americans are traveling for Thanksgiving. Airports are a lot less crowded. Highways not nearly as jammed. Sharyl Attkisson reports on how the slowing economy is affecting the holiday travel season.


Also, the drop in consumer spending last month was the biggest monthly decline since 9/11 – and much steeper than expected. Will Black Friday help pull in shoppers? Michelle Miller looks at the tactics retailers are using in hopes of turning the numbers around.


It was a landmark case over cyber-bullying, in which a 13-year-old Missouri girl committed suicide. Today, the woman accused of playing an Internet hoax on that girl was convicted of misdemeanors. Why wasn't she handed more serious charges? John Blackstone reports.


Finally tonight, if you remember the late reporter Charles Kuralt, you know he traveled many a road during his career at CBS News. On his way, he met perhaps the speediest man on New York City's bustling streets. Tonight, Steve Hartman retraces Kuralt's steps and catches up with the daredevil bike messenger.


See you tonight and have a great Thanksgiving!
