Our usual panel has been out and about this week, and we weren't able to gather them all at the same time. So, today's Gabfest comes to you in two parts.

First, John Dickerson talks about the opening week of the Scooter Libby trial.

Then, Emily Bazelon and David Plotz phone in from Israel, where they're on a press tour.
