Paul Simon - Legendary singer/songwriter Paul Simon says even he was surprised by the overt religious imagery in his recent CD, "So Beautiful or So What."

Wounded Veterans - The Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, the military's largest and most advanced medical facility , treats some of the most seriously burned and wounded soldiers of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
