Washington is not Hollywood, but the nation's capital certainly has its share of famous people. So in honor of that status, this week's show is all about "Fame." We'll head to the Chesapeake Bay to visit a famous — but endangered — island. We'll meet the women recreating the much-celebrated American flag that once flew over Baltimore's Fort McHenry. And we'll hear a tale of a more infamous nature, about the man who founded the American Nazi Party... right here in Arlington, Va.
