Guess who Jack Abramoff called before going to prison? Yep, Bill Clinton's old best friend.

David Skorton is a cardiologist, a beekeeper, a jazz musician, a black belt -- and oh, in his spare time, he runs one of the world's most prestigious universities. My visit with the man who was just named to run the Smithsonian, and the interesting things he had to say about its free admissions policy.
