Columbus, OH – Anti-abortion activists say - once in a while, women in Ohio will get an abortion against their will - they're being coerced into getting an abortion by someone else. To try to prevent those kinds of incidents, the advocates are pushing for a new Ohio law that would require special signs at abortion clinics. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.

Sidney Lumet knows the wages of sin. Dog Day Afternoon was a classic of the heist that went wrong with a performance by Al Pacino that went right. His newest crime in the city is Before the Devil Knows You're Dead, from an Irish toast, "May you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead."

My favorite Christmas film is Billy Bob Thornton's Bad Santa, whose foul mouthed, child endangering store man-in-red is my cup of iconoclasm. Vince Vaughan's Fred Claus, the bad-boy older brother of Nick (Paul Giamatti), is nowhere near as bad as Thornton's in a tepid tale of brotherly love saved only by one scene as potentially funny as any other this year. I expected more from David Dobkin, director or of Wedding Crashers.
