Investing your money...what's safe? That story tonight on The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric



”Those who trust us educate us.”
-George Eliot

Olympus Mons on Mars is the largest volcano in our solar system.


Here’s an early look at what we are working on for tonight's broadcast of The CBS Evening News from Anchor and Managing Editor, Katie Couric

Hi everyone. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

President-elect Barack Obama formally introduced his national security team this morning, led by Senator Hillary Clinton, his nominee for secretary of state. Mr. Obama said: "Hillary’s appointment is a sign to friend and foe of the seriousness of my commitment to renew American diplomacy and restore our alliances." Chip Reid has the story and David Martin will look ahead to the national security challenges that could face this team.

Next, in the wake of the Mumbai massacre, Celia Hatton reports on the latest developments in the India terror attack. And I'll speak with a Virginia couple who were trapped for two days in their hotel room, as gunfire and explosions echoed outside.

Shoppers spent more on "Black Friday" than expected. But many experts believe that won’t translate into a strong holiday shopping season. The gloomy outlook drove the stock market down today. Michelle Miller goes to the mall to find out how stores - and shoppers - are really doing.

One of the stars of the last Super Bowl is in the spotlight tonight, but for the wrong reason. Plaxico Burress was charged with illegal weapons possession today, after shooting himself in the thigh on Friday night, and apparently trying to cover it up. Armen Keteyian investigates the Burress story, and the growing problem of guns and professional athletes.

Finally, with many peoples' investments and retirement accounts shrinking, lots of folks are turning to tangible investments, like gold or stamps … or alpacas. Kelly Wallace looks at how these cousins of the llama are one woman's "stable" investment.

See you tonight,
