Governor-elect Larry Hogan ran on the campaign promise of balancing the state budget and cutting taxes. The budget will be the big issue of the General Assembly that convenes next week -- We talk with Professor Roy Meyers and reporter Bryan Sears about how a Republican governor might deal with a Democratic legislature to balance the budget. Then, how closely should an historical film hew to the historical record? We explore fact and fiction in the new film Selma, about Martin Luther King Jr. and the push for the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Then, the twelve people gunned down in the terror attack in Paris at the satirical French newspaper, Charlie Hebdo  included some celebrated cartoonists. Tom Hall talks with political cartoonist KAL -- Kevin Kallaugher  about the value of satire.
