We look at how several states have been rewriting their voting laws and how it might impact the coming 2012 election. We also examine a new alternative therapy to Tourette's syndrome and how it has already helped one 12-year-old boy battle the disorder. And Jon Meacham discusses the West Virginia coal mining disaster and the need for a national energy plan.
