Also this hour: If the United States defaults on its debt, what does it mean for Houstonians and our local economy?

Then, the new film BlackBerry captures the rise and fall of the once-ubiquitous device. For a time, heads were buried in BlackBerry devices at NASA, the Medical Center, downtown – all over Houston. We revisit BlackBerry culture in the Bayou City on The Bigger Picture.

And Houston's Kinetic Ensemble closes out its season with a concert featuring a world premiere by Bayou City-based composer Theo Chandler.
