On our program tonight, Washington and the nation's federal employees got back to work after a 16-day shutdown. We take a look at the deal struck in Congress and what the impact has been for the government and the economy. Also: Senator-elect Cory Booker on his priorities and political cynicism, smart guns that recognize an owner's touch and new privacy settings for teens on Facebook.
