Traders work on the floor of The New York Stock Exchange on March 6, 2013 in New York City. One day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied to a record high to close at 14,253.77, stocks were up over 40 points in morning trading.

A break in the gridlock on Capitol Hill, some big economic news, and the anniversary of a cultural milestone. Time for our weekly review of the news, The Friday Flashback.

Here with us in the studio, James Rainey, political columnist for the LA Times and from Washington, Nancy Cook, economic and fiscal policy correspondent for The National Journal.
