Tonight we're keeping the presidential candidates honest on their claims that they know how to create jobs. President Obama unveils a job creation plan on Thursday, in a speech to Congress. But GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney laid out his competing plan, late today. We'll look at Romney's record on jobs creation. Plus, a gay teenager shot to death in his classroom. Police say a classmate pulled the trigger. There were plenty of witnesses. So why was their a mistrial? That's crime and punishment. And, a pizza fight involving Kate Plus 8 tops our RidicuList.
