How did your life collide with the headlines in 2007?
Iraq, the subprime crisis, Facebook, immigration, oil prices - 2007 had no shortage of hefty headlines. We'd like to hear about how these and other major news events of the past year affected you. Where did your life collide with the news in 2007?

What's your holiday performance story?
The office talent show, the neighborhood caroling posse, the school pageant ... At holiday time we often sing, dance, and dress as shepherds. Did you bloom in the warmth of your audience's adulation, or freeze up like the snowman you'd rather be building? Did your holiday performance change your life or that of someone close to you?

Shhot an Iraqi
Flatfile Galleries in Chicago wouldn't let Wafaa Bilal call his exhibit "Shoot an Iraqi." Instead Bilal, who's been living in an art installation that allows strangers to shoot him with a Web-operated paintball gun, has called his piece "Domestic Tension." He is an Iraqi who fled Saddam's regime in 1991. His father and younger brother were killed in the current Iraq war. Weekend America Host Bill Radke asks Bilal what it is like to live under the gun.
