The credit can you protect yourself? That story tonight on The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric



”People wouldn’t spend so much time wondering what other people think of them if they only realized how seldom they do.”

Victor Hugo's Les Miserables contains one of the longest sentences in the French language - 823 words without a period.


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,

We'll begin our broadcast tonight with the latest on the crisis in Gaza. Israel momentarily halted its attacks today to allow in supplies of food and medicine. But neither side is agreeing to a diplomatic plan proposed by France and Egypt. Israel claimed the plan would not guarantee an end to Hamas rocket attacks, and Hamas objected to the continued closure of its border with Egypt. Mark Phillips has the latest on the attacks there - and our Richard Roth reports from Israeli border towns that are still being hit by Hamas rocket fire.

Call it the ultimate power lunch. All five living presidents, present, past and future, met today for lunch in Washington. We’ll talk with Bob Schieffer about the extraordinary meeting.

Next: The credit crisis. The number of late loan payments is higher than ever, since records began being kept in 1980. What's going on? Anthony Mason has the story.

From severe flooding in Georgia to torrential rains in Washington to in Michigan … 42 of our 50 states are covered by severe weather. Dean Reynolds explains what's behind this blast of extreme storms.

Finally tonight, I’ll take you behind the scenes of Brad Pitt's remarkable transformation in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

See you tonight, Katie
