Are You Ready For Some Football?!

At the turn of the 20th century, the college leading the football gridiron wasn't Harvard or Yale – it was a little-known powerhouse called the Carlisle Indian Industrial School.

It was at this experimental boarding school for American Indians where many of today's trick plays, and even the first spiral throw, were born.

Read all about them and listen to an interview with Sally Jenkins, author of a book about this famous team. Then you be the coach and design a trick play of your own.

Who knows, if its good enough maybe the Braves can use it Friday night!

Virtual Border Patrol

Immigrants have not always been welcome to the United States as they once were at Ellis Island. 120 years ago fears about Chinese Immigrants led to the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. Today similar fears have led us to put up walls and hire border patrols along the US/ Mexico border.

And now because of a $2 million grant from the state of Texas, anyone in the world can watch grainy live video scenes of cactuses, desert mountains and the Rio Grande along Texas' portion of the international border.

Is this money well spent? What threats or problems does immigration cause? Why do we welcome some immigrants but exclude others? Is this discrimination or are we just protecting our backyards?

Become a "virtual deputy" patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border.
