On Screen
A boy looks through the window of the Ipata Primary school during a visit by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Juba, Sudan, Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2007. Ban was in Sudan to bolster a 2005 peace deal that ended two decades of civil war but whose increasing fragility could herald Sudan's breakup. Ban flew first to the southern capital of Juba where a 10,000-strong U.N. force is monitoring an uneasy peace.

The New Year's essay by former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo that was broadcast Dec. 30 on CBS News Sunday Morning was illustrated by photographs from the book "American Icons" by photographer Steve Gottlieb.
