George Zimmerman, the Florida man accused of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, will be arraigned on Tuesday. In a courtroom just a few states north, the campaign finance trial of former Democratic Senator John Edwards continues in North Carolina — and his former mistress, Rielle Hunter, will likely testify this week. Facebook begins a marketing campaign to prove the company is worth their projected IPO, while Congress looks at limiting government support for banks. Charlie Herman, business and economics editor for The Takeaway and WNYC and Callie Crossley, host of The Callie Crossley Show on WGBH, explore the stories for the week ahead.

What has "gone away" are any discussion about NBC editing the 911 recordings and the intense legal criticism against the prosecutor and their affidavit which may have incompetently overcharged him in this case.

"If you go too far with austerity..people reject it at a certain point"
Sort of like going though withdrawal when a drug is taken away.

The "lesson to the US" is not get addicted to the entitlement drug in the first place...or is it too late?
