On Monday my daughter, Lindsey, and I appeared on a Today Show segment about the cost of college. Here is the video (a short ad plays before the video).
Other guests on the panel were Natalie Merola, a student at Florida International University, and Jacques Steinberg of Say Yes to Education.
The whole thing came about very quickly and was quite an adventure. When they told us there would be a car waiting for us at the airport, we knew this wasn’t going to be your average trip.
They did our hair and makeup, steamed my jacket before the segment, and to answer some other common questions: yes, Willie really is that nice and Natalie really is that beautiful.
A few other pics from our day:
Here we are with our producer, Patricia Luchsinger, who contacted us about doing the segment and made it a wonderful experience for us by answering all our questions and keeping us totally in the loop.

And feeling very relaxed in Rockefeller Plaza after the show.
And speaking of college costs, I recently had the opportunity to help contribute some college savings tips for the September issue of Woman’s Day magazine.
The tips are on page 19 as part of the “September Deals and Freebies” spread.
Now it’s back to my regularly scheduled life, which is not nearly so exciting.
