Female Football Players

Think about this:  Some of the guys trying to tackle the two female football kickers featured on Friday's show weigh twice as much as the girls do!  That doesn't seem to bother the kickers, though - one of them even said she wanted to tackle.

Now I don't know if most of you other girls out there would want to go up against 200-plus-pound guys.  But whether you're a guy or a girl, I would like to know what you think of girls on a guys' football team.

Cutting Back?

All right:  You've heard A LOT about the economy recently - both on our show and probably from your parents.  Wednesday's program even talks about how holiday shopping is expected to be seriously scaled back, with a lot more people spending a lot less money than usual.

But has any of this affected you yet?  I mean, have you been told to expect less this year, or do you plan to cut back on what you spend?  Jennifer Westhoven has a great quote at the end of her report:  "Americans may get the chance, much like those 'Whos' down in 'Whoville,' to remember the true meaning of the holidays isn't about the gifts."

What Would You Do with $10?

You're given $10 and an assignment to "pay it forward"; you can't spend it on yourself, and you can't trade it with a friend.  And if you're thinking this is a bad deal - that you're not really being given $10 if you've got to pass it on - think about how far it'd go anyway.  It's not like you can buy a new game or jacket or pair of shoes with it.  And I guess that's the point:  It's not much if you spend it on yourself, but how far can you make it go for someone else?

9-Year-Old Businesswoman

I knew a guy in high school who started his own lawn-care company.  Another made a fortune running a fleet of garbage trucks.  A third started his own car repair company.  The thing they all had in common:  They were teenagers.  They understood the basics of business, math, and service; put those together, and you've got a good chance of making money.

But Monday's story about a 9-year-old who started her own dog treats company really blew me away.  She's the youngest businessperson I'd ever heard of!  Of course, she had help from her mom (and her dog), but it's encouraging for any aspiring entrepreneur to see someone so young become successful.

I bet that dog is going to be HUGE.

A Smoking Debate

In many ways, Thursday's cigarette story was hard to watch.  But it featured what I thought were two interesting arguments about whether cigarette boxes should show what smoking can do to you.

One side says if the pictures shock smokers into quitting, the goal is reached.  The other side argues that officials don't put pictures of diseased hearts on fattening foods, so why should they put pictures of diseased lungs on cigarette boxes?

Where do you stand, either on the pictures or on smoking?
