COVER STORY: Creating a new blueprint for America’s construction trades
The 2008 recession hit homeowners — and homebuilders — hard.  More than 1.5 million residential construction workers left the industry; some changed careers, others retired, and many immigrant workers left the U.S. and did not return. Add it all up, and since the Great Recession, the industry has recovered just fewer than half of those jobs.

And few young people are looking to careers in construction, plumbing, welding, and other skilled trades.

Mark Strassmann looks at the shortage of skilled labor — desperately needed to build or repair housing in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria — and talks with “This Old House” veteran Norm Abram and Mike Rowe, former host of the series “Dirty Jobs,” about reconstituting America’s blue-collar work ethic.

ART: Mondrian
One hundred years ago modern art took a decisively linear turn with the paintings of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, whose early, conventional “Dutch Masters”-style landscape paintings morphed into a body of work comprised of red, yellow and blue rectangles with black stripes. Mark Phillips reports from The Hague.

BOOKS: The evolution of Dan Brown
The author of the popular “Da Vinci Code” has been vilified by the Catholic Church. Though he claims not to be anti-religion, Dan Brown will surely face more controversy with his latest novel featuring Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, “Origin,” in which God Himself is on the edge of extinction.

Correspondent Tony Dokoupil visits Brown at home in New Hampshire, where his experiences at the prestigious prep school, Phillips Exeter Academy, shaped his life views.

Bill Murray performs in the music/spoken word production, “New Worlds.”

CBS News

In a rare television interview the comic star — whose many “Saturday Night Live” characters included a formidable lounge singer — talks with anchor Jane Pauley about venturing back into music. Murray is selling out concert halls as a member of “New Worlds,” a stage production that mixes serious chamber music with spoken word performances.

The production, which features Murray, cellist Jan Vogler, violinist Mira Wang, and pianist Vanessa Perez, stems from a chance conversation Murray had with Vogler a few years back when they happened to be seated in the same row during a trans-Atlantic flight. They became friends, and that friendship turned into the collaboration on stage.

“I really do appreciate the live performance,” Murray tells Pauley. “We get to a certain point in the show, we look around and go, like, ‘Watch this: Now we’re gonna kill ’em!'”
