This week’s agenda: legislative answers to oil spill crisis, Dow Jones’ drop, first ‘Warrior Games’

The World

We take a look at what’s ahead this week with Marcus Mabry, associate national editor of The New York Times, and Derrick Ashong, host of “The Derrick Ashong Experience” on Sirius XM’s Oprah Radio.

The House Energy Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations will hold hearings about the oil spill on Wednesday in an effort to prevent the next accident. Some senators are calling for regulation of computerized trading after the Dow Jones dropped nearly 1000 points last Thursday. And U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced yesterday that the White House wants to take a new look at the public safety’s exception on Miranda Rights.

We also talk about the first-ever “Warrior Games,” an Olympics-style competition for injured soldiers, which kick off today in Colorado.
