Reinventing yourself in this tough job market...that story tonight on The CBS Evening News with Katie Couric



”Creative thinking may simply mean the realization that there’s no particular virtue in doing things the way they always have been done.”
-Rudolph Flesch

Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest U.S. food consumption day, following Thanksgiving.


Here’s an early look at tonight’s broadcast of The CBS Evening News from Anchor and Managing Editor, Katie Couric

Hi everyone,

As fierce fighting continues in the streets of Gaza, President-elect Barack Obama broke his silence today about the Israeli attacks. He said: "the loss of civilian life in Gaza and Israel is a source of deep concern for me," but did not elaborate. The question, with inauguration two weeks away, is whether there will be a shift, however subtle, in U.S. policy toward Israel. Chip Reid begins our coverage tonight.

Mark Phillips continues our coverage with a report from the frontlines in this battle. Today, Israeli forces attacked a school operated by the U.N., where hundreds of Palestinians had taken refuge. At least 30 people were killed. Israel claims Hamas militants had fired first. We'll have the latest.

Back home, it's a landmark day on Capitol Hill. It's the swearing in day for members of the 111th Congress. But, as Wyatt Andrews reports, two Senate seats are still vacant. So, what's going on with the appointment of Illinois' Roland Burris … and the disputed election in Minnesota? Jeff Greenfield will join us for some analysis.

In just a little more than a month, all U.S. television goes digital. The government promised to help pay for people who didn't have cable. But as Bill Whitaker finds, that government program has run out of cash … and that could leave millions will be left without a TV signal.

Finally tonight: After losing her cushy Wall Street job in the economic meltdown, one woman reinvented herself by finding a whole new recipe for success. Anthony Mason has this sweet story you won't want to miss.

See you tonight, Katie
