Charted Territory. The Palestinians win recognition from the United Nations as a non-member state -- and we'll hear differing opinions on the wisdom of the vote.
Put through the mill. Two-hundred-and-fifty retired workers from a Nova Scotia paper mill are told they owe millions to the company because of a pension miscalculation.
Ringing some jingle bells. The CBC is requesting the right to run commercials on Radio 2 -- so we'll embrace inevitability, and add some commercial breaks to tonight's program.
Hacked to bits. A U.K. inquiry presents its report on phone-hacking -- and makes various recommendations on how the British media can get itself together.
United against an uncommon enemy. That's United Airlines, which is taking a Montreal professor to court for the website he's started -- with the address untied-dot-com.
And...his life on the lam was successful -- until there was a hitch. An off-duty RCMP officer comes face-to-face with a man he'd been pursuing for years in the front seat of his car -- after he picks the fugitive up hitch-hiking.
As It Happens, the Thursday edition. Radio that knows sometimes your thumb gets you fingered.
