Today in The World Digest, we hear from John Otis on Bogota’s new mayor (and former leftist guerrilla) Gustavo Petro.
Also in TWD (who doesn’t like acronyms?!) Ben Gilbert reports on concerns about Tunisia’s new government which is now headed by the formerly-banned Islamist party called Ennahda.
Finally, what a would digest be without Elizabeth McGovern from Downton Abbey (insert excitement here) who talks about the new season? And, we have a story on Peter Frampton being reunited with his long lost guitar that he used in “Do You Feel Like We Do.”
