On Saturday's show we'll discuss the latest on the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado. We'll also examine the faux controversy surrounding President Obama's "you didn't build that" remark, and the myth of pure meritocratic achievement. Plus we'll delve into Mitt Romney's record at the helm of the Salt Lake City Olympics, and we'll dissect a recent New York Times article suggesting that the decline in marriage rates accounts for much of the growth in inequality.
