Rochester NY, by a strange coincidence, came into focus on CBS. Pentagon correspondent David Martin traveled to upstate New York to profile the courtroom of Judge Patricia Marks for CBS' Eye on Justice feature. Judge Marks runs a program to keep veterans who run foul of the law upon discharge from ending up in prison. Steve Hartman for Assignment America followed up on his famous 1996 feature on Jason McElwain. Back then, McElwain, who suffers from autism, was the high school senior and hoops fanatic who was given a final chance to play--and sank basket after basket after basket. That moment of fame gave McElwain a shot of newfound confidence: "That game really did change him."
