  • Emerging from under the cloud of bankruptcy, Northwest Airlines has cut $1.4 billion from annual labor costs-while increasing executive pay. Bill Moyers looks at yet another industry in which CEOs fly high on salaries and perks while workers and retirees must tighten their belts. Also on the program: What's next for Afghanistan? Journalist Christian Parenti, just back from his fourth visit to the forgotten front line, discusses the growing influence of warlords in government, the resurgence of the Taliban and the drug trade, and life on the ground in the struggling nation. In addition, Episcopal presiding bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori-spiritual leader of more than two million American worshipers-talks about science, the environment, and the rift in her church over the ordination of gay and lesbian clergy.
