This week’s agenda: ash paralyzes Europe, ‘American idiot’ opens on Broadway

The World

We take look at what’s ahead this week, with Marcus Mabry of The New York Times and Latoya Peterson editor of the blog, Racialicious. Volcanic ash continues to keep most European flights grounded affecting attendance at everything from the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate to the Tribeca Film Festival, both of which take place this week. Meanwhile, Washington is still buzzing about the Iran memo sent by Defense Secretary Robert Gates. And in cultural news, Wanda Sykes’ show is up for renewal and Green Days’ “American Idiot” opens on Broadway.
