Of course, we discuss HB 2. Specifically, we take you behind the scenes of our coverage of this week's developments, and Tom Bullock discusses comparisons to a 1990s Colorado law that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down.

We also talk about the Patrick Cannon tapes released this week that show the former Charlotte mayor taking bribes.

And the CMS board this week surprisingly approved a draft of guiding principles for student assignment. Lisa Worf explains how there's a lot of leeway in those principles.
