Ugh – just typing it makes me cringe. Our writer, Jordan Bienstock, once asked me if there was anything I didn't ever want to say on air. The phrase, "You go, girl" was the only thing that came to mind. It's got enough cheese to fill Wisconsin.
So, to have a little fun after Wednesday's "Before We Go" segment, Mr. Bienstock thought it'd be humorous to write that very phrase for me to read.
I got my revenge just before saying goodbye.
We've received some requests (thank you, Ms. Mason!) for an address where students can send letters to Youssif, the five-year-old Iraqi boy who was badly burned in an attack. He's now undergoing treatment at the Childrens Burn Foundation in California. Here's where you can send him your well wishes:
Youssif – Care of Keely Quinn
Childrens Burn Foundation
5000 Van Nuys Blvd, Suite 300
Sherman Oaks, CA 91403-1784
Thank you all for your e-mail concerning this story. We're sure Youssif would approve.
