Who is Sheldon Adelson? We profile the Las Vegas billionaire and his crucial cash injection to Newt Gingrich's presidential bid. Then we check in on the San Diego trial of a US military squad leader involved in the deadly Haditha shootings that left 24 Iraqis dead. LA Times Tony Perry joins the show to fill us in. After almost 20 years in prison, three men convicted of killing three young boys in a satanic ritual are freed. The "Paradise Lost" documentary series made the case famous - director Joe Berlinger and Jason Baldwin, who was recently released from prison, will be on the show. And NPR Music Critic Ann Powers is on talking about two albums made entirely of cover songs.
