The Hustler publisher, who usually digs for sexual dirt, is determined to expose Romney's tax returns. He talks to Lauren Ashburn about his million-dollar reward.

Teachers Strike

Chicago teachers today are striking for the second day. Around 350,000 Chicago schoolchildren were locked out of the classroom as 29,000 teachers began striking yesterday. Chicago's school board and teachers' union failed to come to an agreement yesterday, with two sides deadlocked over several key points of contention, including the hot-button national issues of teacher evaluations and recall policy. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he didn't give "two hoots" about Mitt Romney's opinion after the Republican presidential campaign accused President Obama of putting the interests of organized labor above the students.


Chief Justice John Roberts had lived a life of order and balance until his surprising vote to uphold Obamacare. In Newsweek, Daniel Klaidman predicts how Roberts will weather the storm.


President Obama visited the Pentagon to mark the anniversary of 9/11 Tuesday, saying, "This is never an easy day." Thousands gathered to mourn in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania. Meanwhile, construction will resume at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum after the museum and the Port Authority came to an agreement Monday. All work at the memorial was halted last year over disagreements about funding, financing, and oversight. The federal government also announced it will add cancer to the list of illnesses linked to 9/11—making many former  Ground Zero workers eligible for financial compensation.

For Real?

The brother of al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has proposed mediating a peace plan between radical Islamists and the West. In an interview with CNN, Mohamed al-Zawahiri said he has written a six-page proposal for a 10-year truce if certain conditions are met on both sides. Among the demands, the U.S. must stop intervening in Muslim lands and release all Islamist prisoners, while Islamists must stop attacks on Western interests and protect legitimate Western interests in Muslim countries. He says: "I don't represent a certain group. My role is mediator between the West and them." He adds that his relationship with his brother puts him in a unique position, but admits they have not spoken in more than a decade.
