Terror attacks in India...could they happen here? That story tonight on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric



“Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. “
-Helen Keller

The white part of an egg is the albumen.


Here’s an early look at what we are working on from Early Show anchor Maggie Rodriguez in for Anchor and Managing Editor of The CBS Evening News, Katie Couric

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! Maggie

Here’s an early look at what’s coming up Saturday on a SPECIAL 2 hour 48 HOURS MYSTERY, Drawn to Murder:

On the morning of February 11, 1987, the half naked body of 37-year-old Peggy Hettrick was found in a field in Fort Collins, Colorado… Police canvassed every house near the crime scene, talking with businessmen, housewives and neighbors who all said they had seen nothing suspicious. But police were quick to zero in on Tim Masters, who lived a stone’s throw from the field. Masters, then a 15-year-old with not a lot of friends, but no history of trouble, usually cut through that same field to catch the school bus. Tim’s footprints were in the field… but he hadn’t reported a thing. Upon searching the residence, police discovered all sorts of graphic drawings - mutilation, dismemberment. But at the time, that simply wasn’t enough evidence to arrest Tim Masters.

Years passed and the case went cold… until 1997 when one cop would find an ally to put a new spin on the best evidence the police had. . . Tim’s drawings. More than a decade after the crime, Masters went to prison in 1999 …sentenced to life behind bars without parole… for a grisly murder he swears he didn’t commit. Then, a starting revelation would challenge the conviction. Was there a much more likely suspect? Now, after years of hearings and petitions and unsuccessful appeals, a judge could make a ruling that would set Masters free. Who REALLY killed Peggy Hettrick?

A SPECIAL 2 hour 48 HOURS MYSTERY airs Saturday at 9pmET/8CT
