Emily and David:
Love the show! This isn't a comment on this topic, but I didn't see a way to suggest future topics, so here goes:
Channel 8 just did a short news bit on the real, astronomical, and hidden cost of text-messaging. Check it out! I'm sure many parents out there, who are paying their kids' phone bills, would like to talk about this! I'm an empty-nester, but it would interest me to explore how/why texting became/is so popular, as compared to simply talking on the phone--which evidently is so much cheaper. I just can't help thinking that one way out of this lousy recession is to learn--and to teach kids--to live more moderately. This new way of spending money is another example of excess living. Thanks for considering this idea.
