This Week in the News-A Quick Look

Happy Friday! I trust you all had a great Veterans Day!  I must say I’m excited because one of my favorite veterans is on her way back home after serving 8 months in Afghanistan!  I don’t have a lot of time today, so I’m gonna be quick! (Feel free to read up on these stories and share your thoughts!)

Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe (aka the Kardashian sisters) have launched a pre-paid MasterCard.  The card is targeted to teens and could cost consumers as much as $100/year just to have it! (Read more here.)

In case you missed it, Matt Lauer interviewed former president George W. Bush.  A lot of people think Matt took it easy on Dubya.  The former president did state he didn’t appreciate being called a racist by Kanye West.  And Kanye went in on Matt.  (Can’t we all just get along???)

Have you heard about the tragic and senseless death of Bobby Tillman?

As long as my taxes don’t change, President Obama is alright with me.

Ok, folks, that’s all I have time for today.  Feel free to share your own news or comment on one of the stories I’ve shared with you today!  Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
