We take a look at SB 1070, Arizona's landmark immigration bill, as it heads to the Supreme Court. Phoenix-based reporter Devin Browne explains the mixed effects the law has had in the Grand Canyon state. Plus, reading suggestions that might keep your kids up at night. We take you back to 1812 and revisit the dark folk tales that made the Grimm Brothers famous with children's librarian Mara Alpert. And music critic Ann Powers is on the show with new music from two Nashville heavyweights - Marty Stuart and Jack White.
