CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Happy holidays, everyone. This is Harry Smith filling in for Katie.


If you're traveling this holiday season, there's a good chance you’re hitting the road today. In fact, it's expected to be the busiest travel day of this holiday season. And while a lull in terrible winter weather in parts of the Midwest has provided some relief to weary travelers, delays are still clogging up airports on both coasts. Kelly Wallace has the story of some who may not make it home in time for Christmas.


Turning abroad, our Elizabeth Palmer visits one Iraqi city to observe, first-hand, the evolving mission for American troops. They’re now letting the Iraqis take the lead in providing security. But are the security forces really ready to take over?


As the mortgage crisis continues, homeowners are making some big life changes just to stay in their homes – including taking in rent-paying strangers to help make ends meet. Ben Tracy reports from Los Angeles.


And our health story tonight is one about bureaucracy – turned to generosity. U.S. hospitals toss out tons of perfectly good medical equipment every day, but at least some of it is now being used to save lives in Africa. Dr. Jon LaPook explains how a ground-breaking new program works.


Finally tonight, he's been making magic for L.A. kids for generations. But the tough economy is hitting business hard. Will the puppet-master make it to his 50th year of tickling imaginations? Bill Whitaker has the story of pulling strings … in hard times.


See you tonight and I hope you have a wonderful holiday,


Katie Couric
