Death toll in Syria, the metric system in the US, and a flamenco music group

Volunteers are reading the names of the estimated 200,000 Syrian casualties of the bloody civil war in front of the White House. We talk to one of the lead organizers of the movement. Also, we discuss why the metric system just can't seem to be implemented in the States and a flamenco group performs on Weekend Passport.
