--A medicine already used to treat alcoholics, may soon be used to treat people addicted to painkillers. The drug comes from Alkermes, and the CEO is with us this morning.

--Plus the RV index. Are people buying motor-homes again. A top executive from Thor Industries is on the show. See what the company's success says about the big picture.

--Plus, Phil LeBeau with cars that get 100 miles per gallon and a key red-meat debate, Republican vs. Democrat on the President's economic track-record.
