Jurassic Park may not be just a amazing story tonight on The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric



" “We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.” "
- C.S. Lewis

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

Hi everyone,

After Congress pressed "pause" today on the Big Three bailout, the stock market took a major plunge to levels not seen since 2002. Earlier today, Democrats decided to delay a vote on helping out the auto industry until the companies provide them with specific plans for making their business viable. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: “Unless they can show us the plan, we can’t show them the money." Anthony Mason has the news from Wall Street and Sharyl Attkisson has the full story from Capitol Hill.

While American carmakers may not have a solid business plan, Japanese automakers are holding steady - and planning for a prosperous future. As Barry Petersen explains, one Japanese automaker, with a factory in Texas, is weathering the storm much better. Even laid-off workers still feel like part of the family.

Parents and teachers will be very interested in our next story. Science and technology correspondent Daniel Sieberg visits one of the dark corners of the Internet: videos made by kids, for kids, teaching each other just what teacher's don't want them to learn … how to cheat.

Next: “Jurassic Park” isn’t as far-fetched as you may think. Within a few years, scientists say they might be able to bring back to life a species that’s been extinct for 10,000 years. Jeff Glor looks at the possibility of a test-tube mammoth.

Finally, Steve Hartman has been retracing the footsteps of legendary correspondent Charles Kuralt to catch up on some of his most famous subjects. Tonight, Steve visits the man once known as the country's best shoe salesman. More than two decades later, does he still have a passion for foot fashion?

See you tonight, Katie
