STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

NPR's business news starts with a recipe change from Coke.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

INSKEEP: No, no, no. There's not going to be a new Coke. They're not going to try that again. Several of Coca-Cola's fruity drinks, like Fanta and Power Aid contain brominated vegetable oil or BVO.

George HW Bush Receives JFK Profiles In Courage Award

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.

George HW Bush now gets the Profiles in Courage Award. In 1990, he broke his own read-my-lips-no-new-taxes pledge and accepted higher taxes to cut the federal deficit. It may have caused Bush's job but for many reasons the deficit went down.
