SMITHSONIAN EXHIBIT - In its short history, the United States changed from a small upstart nation in the 1770s to one the world's largest economies. And since our nation's inception, the balance between capitalism and democracy has shaped the American experience. National values of competition, innovation, opportunity, and the common good have played an integral role in the nation's history and comprised the building blocks of America's business. For the first time ever, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History is presenting a multi-media educational experience focusing on the role of business and innovation in the US. The 8,000 square-foot exhibition titled "American Enterprise" examines our nation's business and consumer history from the 1770s to the 2010s, focusing on stories from the areas of agriculture, finance, information technology and communication, retail and service, and manufacturing. With more than 600 objects on display, the exhibit explores the nation's business story through four chronological eras in the American marketplace: the Merchant Era, the Corporate Era, the Consumer Era and the Global Era.

BENTLEY PHONER - Janice and Mike talked with Governor Robert Bentley by phone this morning. Governor Bentley says he believes National Guardsmen in Alabama should be armed while on active duty... in light of what happened in Chattanooga. The Governor's office says he has asked Guard leaders to work on a plan that would keep both service members and the citizens they protect, safe. Several other governors across the country have already authorized the arming of national guardsmen.
