Dear BPP Faithful,
We had a former managing editor of the New York Post on our show today to talk about some of the greatest Post covers of all time, including the legendary "Headless Body in Topless Bar."
That got us thinking: what if we gave today's BPP stories the ol' tabloid treatment? What clever headlines could we come up with? So I challenge you to take today's show and give it a little tabloid flair.
Here's the lineup from today's show:
The nation's airplanes are just about ready for liftoff again. Delta and American Airlines expect to be back in business today after grounding hundreds of flights this week for voluntary inspections. Late last night Delta and American Airlines apologized to customers who were inconvenienced.
In our series, "Meet the Firsts" — we have the story of an 18-year-old high school senior Anmaar Habib. In 2002, she was the first female skier to represent Pakistan in any international ski event and she now has her sights set on an even bigger goal: to represent at the 2010 winter Olympic Games.
NPR's Alison Aubrey reports on why kids curse.
On his way back to Istanbul, NPR correspondent Ivan Watson dropped by the BPP to offer a reporters notebook and let us turn the tables on him.
All three presidential candidates gave major speeches this week on the economy. And while they all touched on similar themes, they drew pretty different conclusions. NPR's Economics Correspondent Adam Davidson helps us make heads or tails of it all.
The new movie "Stop Loss" dramatizes the controversial military policy of the same name. We'll learn about the policy itself from Ann Scott Tyson, military reporter for the Washington Post.
Now you supply the headlines in the comments!
