What's your holiday performance story?
The office talent show, the neighborhood caroling posse, the school pageant ... At holiday time we often sing, dance, and dress as shepherds.

voting places
In the final stretch of the midterm elections, we consider whether where a person votes relates to how they vote. Stanford researcher Jonah Berger tells us that pulling the lever in a church versus doing it in a school could change how a vote turns out. Then we'll talk to reporter Bill Bishop with the Austin American-Statesman about how people have self-selected into communities with others who vote the same way they do. Finally we'll take the bird's eye view and talk with a computer science student who used Google maps to prove that population density predicts voting patterns.
