  • Business Takeout: Retailers are struggling this holiday season, but luxury sellers like Saks Fifth Avenue are cutting inventory, so consumers can't count on blowout sales. New York Times reporter Louise Story explains this novel approach.
  • Listeners: We received a lot of responses to yesterday's story about a physicians' group recommending people wait for particular cancer screenings.
