* Hungary goes nuts after PM admits he lied.
* Bad news about our troop levels in Iraq, and a gloomy forecast in general. Also, a report from the ground with a CBS reporter.
* Face to face with Iranian president Ahmadinejad.
* Few black churches get funds for faith-based initiatives.
* Colleges of tomorrow: "What, then, might a world without early applications look like?"
* Walking shark? 52 new species found in the seas off Indonesia.
* Coming this December: the Hannibal Lecter prequel novel.
