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?

America's 20s
slideshow
This is the final weekend of an exhibit at the University of Texas in Austin about the social and cultural changes that took place in America in the 1920s and their impact on the literature, music and art of the time. Many of those changes are with us still. We hear from Danielle Sigler, an American Studies scholar at the Harry Ransom Center, where the exhibit is housed.
