As we head in to the holidays, just remember: everything in moderation!

We take a pause before the Thanksgiving feast to relish in some moderation. We'll hear about the man whose book -- Robert's Rules of Order -- has been shaping the nation's public meetings for more than a century. We'll go inside the world of high-powered Washington law firms, and learn about a movement to help attorneys strike a work-life balance. And we'll hit the road to meet the priests trying to put the brakes on our lead-footed driving.
