Terrific story -- and a great idea -- from the CBS Evening News and Steve Hartman, who's taken over the "On the Road" featurette. It's about a nursing home in Cleveland that has a fascinating program that mixes music students with their residence. Having spent a lot of time in the Independent Living residence where my dad has lived for 10 years, I can see why this is such a good program. I don't know if it would work everywhere -- my dad's place has a strong entertainment program, so they wouldn't really need it -- but there are still benefits to having such a thing, regardless.
