It's Tuesday. It's our last show before Thanksgiving. Millions of Americans are expecting to travel for the holiday. One thing they might wanna pack: patience.

"I become very happy because at the first thing. It's about medicine."
"...on the price of medicine because it's very high and I think it's better now."
"I`m disappointed by the terms of the agreement between Iran and the P5 plus 1 nations because it does not seem proportional."
"Everybody is happy about it, because we hope for a change and the economic administration that we are....
