La Jolla Christmas Parade

The La Jolla Christmas Parade has been a community tradition for more than 50 years.  One group wants the name changed, though, saying the word "Christmas" gives the event a religious feel that the group doesn't like.

A parade organizer says the Christmas parade is inclusive of all people and religions - and that the community wants to keep the parade and its title just as they are.

What's your take on the debate?

Changing a symbol?

Some changes have been proposed to the International Symbol of Accessibility (what's commonly called the "handicap symbol").  After watching the story in Wednesday's show, we'd love to get your thoughts on it:  Should the symbol be changed?

Phoning while Flying?

The FCC is considering whether to allow people to make calls from their cell phones while flying.  Many folks would undoubtedly find this convenient and a good way to pass the time on a long flight.  But what would it be like to sit next to someone (who may not be a quiet talker) while he or she is on the phone for hours at a time?

Would love to get your thoughts on whether the FCC and the airlines should allow talking on the phone while you're in flight.

Drivers, Quarterbacks, and Athleticism

No one would dispute the fact that Jimmie Johnson is an exceptional race car driver; he just won his sixth NASCAR Sprint Cup title.

But former NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb recently ignited a controversy by suggesting that Johnson - or any race car driver, for that matter - is not an athlete.  Johnson's response:  "Yes, I am an athlete. And so is every other driver in one of these race cars."

Whether or not you've raced a vehicle or played football, we'd like to hear your opinion!

Stash of Cash

If the desk he'd bought from someone else had fit through the door, Rabbi Noah Muroff wouldn't have had to take it apart.  And if he hadn't taken it apart, he probably wouldn't have found a shopping bag inside containing $98,000.

He called up the person who sold him the desk and found out it was her inheritance; she'd forgotten what she did with it.  So the money was headed back to its original owner.

We saw this as a good, "what would you do?" moment.  Let's say you found a large amount of money in something you'd just bought from someone - could be in a baseball glove, a piece of art, a pair of shoes - what comes next?

Trouble Off the Field

That's what the NFL's Miami Dolphins are dealing with.

One player has left the team; another has been suspended, and a lot of questions have come up about alleged misconduct. After seeing our report, we'd like to get your take on whether this is part of the game in the NFL - or if it's out of bounds.

Violence in Schools

We're planning to cover some stories this week that involve violence in schools.  (One incident led to the closing of all seven schools in a Massachusetts district.)

You might have heard about these stories on other news outlets before hearing them on CNN Student News.  When you talk about school violence with your parents or your friends, what comes up?  What concerns you the most?

Your View: The U.S. Economy

Is the U.S. economy:

On Wednesday, you'll hear about a couple of different indicators related to the U.S. economy.  And we report on how Americans responded to a recent poll about it.

We're also doing an informal poll of our own:  Do you think the economy is getting better, getting worse, or staying the same?

Grambling State controversy

"Where do we go from here? We wait until Monday and see if they come to weight training."

Those were the words of Grambling State University's athletic director last week, after many of the school's football players boycotted practice and refused to play in last weekend's game, which Grambling forfeited.

On Monday, Grambling's players announced that they will return to practice and finish their season.

The university's president says the team doesn't understand the financial challenges that Grambling is facing. After watching our report on the team's protest, share your thoughts on this story here.

Supping in Silence

Confession time:  I've never really been good at silence.  My older sister said that as a baby, I screamed until I could talk and that I haven't shut up since.

So the silent restaurant featured in Wednesday's show probably wouldn't be the best place for me to eat.  But I still thought the idea was interesting.  The only sound you're supposed to hear is that of your fork clanking against your plate.  There's no verbal discussion about the food, no verbal planning for dessert, no verbal debrief of the day's events - just breathing, chewing, and paying.

But would this be enjoyable?  Some folks dine out for the food (or because they don't want to cook); some see it as a social experience; some think it's a combo of the two.  Without the talking, do you think the meal would still be good?
