Season 2011 Episode 1360 | 52m 53s

The U.S. government has reached the legal limit for the amount of money it can borrow but Treasury officials say they can take other measures to pay the bills. Also, residents in Louisiana fled ahead of the Mississippi River deluge and we examine the fallout over the turmoil at the I.M.F. Finally, we hear the poetry of Tracy K. Smith and get an excerpt from the documentary 'Freedom Riders.'
