"60 MINUTES" LISTINGS FOR SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2008
COMING HOME - Citizen soldiers returning from active military duty are entitled by law to get back their old jobs or at least the same salaries. But as Lesley Stahl reports, many National Guard and Reservist vets are having trouble despite the law and now employers say the law is putting an excessive financial burden on their businesses. Karen Sughrue is the producer.
SERGEANT BILL - Waving a badge he bought on the Internet and claiming to belong to the "Multi-jurisdictional Narcotics Task Force," Bill Jakob fooled a small town's officials into granting him the authority of a law enforcement officer. Katie Couric reports. Kyra Darnton is the producer.
BRAIN POWER - People who are completely paralyzed due to illness or trauma are getting help communicating with a new technology that connects their brains to a computer. In the future, brain computer interface, or BCI, may restore movement to paralyzed people and allow amputees to move bionic limbs. Scott Pelley reports. Denise Schrier Cetta is the producer.
