The original reporting, in conjunction with web-extra video and photos, brings stories to life and provides readers with compelling content as they explore the fuller spectrum of news, insights and analysis offered on msnbc.com.

    Readers are encouraged to become a part of the story by sharing their thoughts through message boards. They can easily access Field Notes through msnbc.com’s U.S. News section, as well as its Blogs section, where they’ll find postings by NBC News correspondents and producers, for example:
