Money Talks - and Bears, too

Former US Ambassador to Kenya, Prudence Bushnell, survived the 1998 attack on the American embassy in Nairobi. She comments on the unprecedented closings this week of US diplomatic posts in the Middle East and Africa. Also, an American businessman living and working in Russia says some of the current rhetoric coming out of Washington - and directed at Moscow - can sound 'silly' from where he sits. Which cities are the most expensive for Americans to live in abroad? A talking Teddy Bear who makes both kids and adults smile. And a stand-up comedian from China wins over US audiences in English and Mandarin.
